- Expertly crafted St. Benedict Cross
- Perfect for Home and Devotional use
- Artful use of Black Enamel
St. Benedict is one of the saints most closely associated with the cross of Jesus. St. Benedict felt the cross was a symbol of how Jesus lived in "death to self-ego and rebirth/resurrection in the spirit of God". Like Jesus St. Benedict believed in humble obedience to the holy will of God. This St. Benedict Cross comes from Italy, is 8 inches tall, and has a black enamel background with a nickel finish. The black enamel and silver nickel finish of the crucifix complement each other beautifully.
The unique aspect of this cross is the medal of St. Benedict which is found at the center of the crucifix. There are many symbols found on the medal and an explanation of the symbols on the St. Benedict medal comes with the crucifix. Included, for instance, is the information that the CSPB on the medal means The Cross of our Holy father Benedict while the PAX stands for Peace. Legend has it that St. Benedict's life was saved when he waved the cross over a cup of wine some monks used to try to poison him and his devotion to the cross helped save him.
