Most widely known for his intercessory protection from the devil, St. Benedict medals are one of the most powerful in our Catholic faith. They are also the most indulgenced medal in the Catholic Church. This sturdy St. Benedict Rosary features two St. Benedict medals, one in the crucifix and one in the center, both encased in polished wood.
The St. Benedict Rosary is large without being heavy, making it an ideal men's rosary. The polished large black wooden rosary beads measure approximately 1cm x 8mm—a perfect large rosary bead size for a man's hands and fingers. The beads are oval and not round, giving more surface area for large fingers to grip. The crucifix is brown with a black edge and silver corpus. The Saint Benedict Rosary comes on a tan cord and measures 19.5 inches.
A laminated St. Benedict holy card is included with an image of St. Benedict on the front and a prayer on the back that reads, “God our Father, You made St. Benedict an outstanding guide to teach men how to live in Your service. Grant that by preferring Your love to everything else, we may walk in the way of Your commandments. Grant this through Christ our Lord, Amen.” The St. Benedict Rosary has a great masculine look and feel that would make an ideal men's rosary, or a great gift for anyone with a special devotion to St. Benedict.

|Review:||After purchasing 3 of these rosaries, I had trouble with one of them coming apart. The service dept. sent me another one, but one week later, the crucifix came off. I just received my third one, and this time, the lady pulled on it heartily before sending it to be sure I would have no more problems. I certainly appreciate this service, By the way, I was not charged anything for the additional shipments or rosaries.|

|Review:||This is much better than I expected. It's sturdy, and the medal center and crucifix are very, very nice. It's larger than I expected, so it's better for home use than for keeping in your pocket. I love the feel of wooden beads in my hand. And mysteriously, I've felt drawn to St. Benedict and his teachings. Hmmmm.|
