Saint On A Chain - Saint Benedict
Carry your favourite saint on a chain! These chains can be used as a saint charm for the rear view mirror in your car, a bag or purse dangling charm, a bracelet - in fact they can be hooked up just about any place you would like to see your medal, along with an angel and a crucifix.
This Saint On A Chain features a gold-plated pewter medal with Saint Benedict on the front and his ward (prayer of protection) on the other. The medal is accompanied by a little gold angel and a gold "grapes & vine" style crucifix.
St Benedict was born to the Roman nobility and is the twin brother of St Scholastica. He eventually personally established 12 monasteries. He had the ability to read consciences, the gift of prophesy, and could forestall attacks of the devil. At one point there were over 40,000 monasteries guided by the Benedictine Rule which basically says: “Pray and work.”
St Benedict has many patronages, including patron saint of monks, those in religious orders, agricultural workers, schoolchildren, civil engineers, cavers, the dying and wards against poisons, witchcraft, fevers and temptations.
Chain: 18cm with gold tone lobster clasp.
Your Saint On A Chain will come nicely wrapped on a presentation card so it makes a fab gift, specially for mailing.
