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.

    Very Pleased

    The St. Benedict Home Blessing is beautiful. I ordered it for my sister as a gift and had it blessed at my local Church. She loves it. It's my 2nd one and I'm quite sure I will buy more. So far, every single thing I have ordered from Catholic Company and been of excellent quality. And just as I was expecting based on website description. Thanks so much!!

    This is the best housewarming gift I have them blessed by our priest and I include information about the medal. I also have one of my own. I would recommend it and will buy it again!
