St Benedict Medal, Antiqued Copper, 3cm Round
Saint Benedict medal cast in nickle and lead free pewter with an antiqued copper finish. The medal has St Benedict on one side and his ward (prayer of protection) on the other side. Very good detail.
St Benedict is one of the most well-known of all Christian saints and is honored in the Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox Churches.
Size: Round, 3cm across excluding top loop, 3.75cm tall including top loop.
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.
A very nice medal for use as a pendant, or for a rosary or chaplet.
If you want to wear this medal as a pendant, I have some matching neck chains here: Chain Collection
