Details

The Home Blessing of St. Benedict is a new and unique way to benefit from the sacramental use of the St. Benedict medal that can be displayed just about anywhere.  Saint Benedict was a great saint known not only for his sanctity but for his resistance and power over devils that tried to undermine him.  Tradition holds that at least twice attempts were made on Saint Benedict's life through poisoned food, and both times his blessing over his meal spared his life.  These and other miracles were frequent in the life of St. Benedict.  He was especially adept at resisting the devil's wiles, thus the St. Benedict medal is a highly indulgenced Catholic saint medal with several exorcism prayers etched onto its surface. As such St. Benedict medals have become favorites among Catholic faithful. 

This Home Blessing of St. Benedict is a decorative way to display the St. Benedict medal with knotted nylon cords and beads that can hang from a doorknob or from another convenient place in the home or car.  In addition to a St. Benedict crucifix are two St. Benedict medals of various sizes. The purpose of using the St. Benedict medal is to call down God's blessing and protection upon us, wherever we are, and upon our homes and possessions, especially through the intercession of St. Benedict.  Sacramentals used in this way become a constant silent prayer and reminder of our identity as followers and lovers of Christ. The St. Benedict medal has several prayers associated with it as identified by the acronyms on both sides.  These are a prayer of exorcism against the devil, a prayer for strength in time of temptation, a prayer for a peaceful death in the Lord, a prayer for peace among ourselves and among the nations of the world, a prayer that the Cross of Christ be our light and guide, a prayer of firm rejection of all that is evil, a prayer of petition that we may with Christian courage "walk in God's ways, with the Gospel as our guide," as St. Benedict admonishes us.

I love it


By:
Review: I Absolutely love it. It's a lot more beautiful than the picture on the website. I am having it blessed this coming Sunday. I'm thinking about purchasing a couple more as gifts. I know they will enjoy having them in their home as much as we do.

Review: bought two...one for my son and his family and one for our own home. Had our parish priest bless them and they now hang on our respective front door handles. They are a lovely addition to our homes and the quality is beautiful

Exceeds Expectations


By:
Review: Everything I've ordered from The Catholic Company — and I've ordered a lot — has exceeded my expectations. This piece is no exception. I'll be buying more as gifts.

Beautiful - more than what I expected


By:
Review: I highly recommend this! It looked beautiful online but what I wasn't expecting was the weight of it, meaning the medallions are heavy and BEAUTIFUL. It's legit! I bought this for my own home but it would be a wonderful gift for a new home owner or frankly, ANYONE. It was worth the money. Awesome quality (and I'm picky!)

more substantial than I though


By:
Review: I wasn't expecting something so substantial. But, once I held it in my hand I really appreciated it. My teenagers liked the styling.

Gorgeous

Review: I love my St. Benedict Home Blessing, I had it blessed and it is hanging on door.

Nice piece


By:
Review: Very nice piece to hang on doorknob or just on the wall...

Very Nice and Well Made


By:
Review: I love this Home Blessing- Saint Benedict. My Parish Priest has Blessed it and I intend to keep it in my automobile as an extra source of protection. It is really quite attractive and very well made. I am very pleased with this purchase, although, as stated by other reviewers an information sheet would have been a nice addition, but not necessary as far as I am concerned.

Beautiful


By:
Review: I was surprised this did not come with an information card. It was a gift.

Comforting


By:
Review: I wanted this St. Benedict Home Blessing not only because I liked the way it looked but also because I really liked the description of it and the spiritual details that accompanied this particular set. It was exactly the way it was depicted in the catalog and is well made. I had our parish priest bless it and it hangs on the door that everyone uses at our house.

Very nice


By:
Review: Fairly good-sized. Attractive enough to give as a gift. The crucifix and medals are well done. Agree with another reviewer that said an information sheet should be included explaining the significance of the pieces.

Love my house Blessing


By:
Review: I have one of these in my home. I look at it often and am reminded that St Benedict is watching over me and my home. This time I purchased it for a dear friend who had a stressful move. I found online an explanation of what each item on it relates to. It would be nice if the story behind each piece was included with this house blessing piece. Knowing the reason for each part makes me feel even more blessed to have it in my home.

Review: This is so impressive and beautiful. I asked my Pastor to bless it and he thought that the St. Benedict piece was lovely. The religious items that compose this Home Blessing look 100% better than the catalog.

Review: Item is beautiful. A nice addition to my home. Picture on website doesn't do it justice. I'm going to keep this in mind for gifts. I don't remember ever getting anything from the Catholic Company that I wasn't pleased with. Thank you for providing such high quality items.
