St. Benedict

THE COLLECTION: SAINT BENEDICT
The one-of-a-kind Ghirelli style gives life to a Collection of rosaries that embody the message of St. Benedict. The wonderful booklet centerpiece -- an exclusive of Ghirelli -- contains pages with prayers of exorcism written by St. Benedict. The Crucifixes, handmade by master artisans, are masterpieces of Italian art.

 

THE MESSAGE 
The Lord waits for us daily to translate into action, as we should, his holy teachings.” -- St. Benedict (Prol. 35)
 
The man of God who shone on this earth among so many miracles was just as brilliant in the eloquent exposition of his teaching." -- St. Gregory the Great, writing on St. Benedict (Dialogues II, 36)

 

THE MEDAL-CROSS
On one side of the medal is the image of the Saint; on the reverse is the cross recalling the devotion he had in his life for this symbol, especially against attacks of the devil.
Legend of the initials:
