CATHOLIC ROSARY BEADS
ROSARY BEADS - 8X10MM BLACK WOOD ST. BENEDICT CORDED ROSARY WITH WOOD CENTERPIECE & CRUCIFIX. HOLY CARD & BOX INCLUDED. 19" LENGTH. BENEDICT IS THE PATRON SAINT OF KIDNEY DISEASE, POISON SUFFERERS, STUDENTS, POISONING, SCHOOL CHILDREN, HOMELESS, MONKS. THE ROSARY IS A FORM OF PRAYER IN WHICH THE OUR FATHER AND HAIL MARY PRAYERS ARE RECITED WHILE MEDITATING OR THINKING ON SOME PARTICULAR EVENT IN THE LIFE OF OUR LORD. THESE EVENTS ARE CALLED MYSTERIES OF THE ROSARY. THE STRING OF BEADS ON WHICH THESE PRAYERS ARE SAID IS ALSO CALLED A ROSARY. ST. DOMINIC TAUGHT THE USE OF THE ROSARY IN ITS PRESENT FORM. BY IT HE INSTRUCTED HIS HEARERS IN THE CHIEF TRUTHS OF OUR HOLY RELIGION AND CONVERTED MANY TO THE TRUE FAITH. THE ST. BENEDICT JUBILEE MEDAL REPRESENTS ST. BENEDICT HOLDING THE CROSS IN ONE HAND AND THE HOLY RULE IN THE OTHER. AROUND THE IMAGE OF ST. BENEDICT ARE THESE WORDS IN LATIN "MAY HIS PRESENCE PROTECT US IN THE HOUR OF DEATH." ST. BENEDICT HAS EVER BEEN THE PATRON OF THE DYING, BECAUSE OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES ATTENDING HIS OWN MOST GLORIOUS DEATH, FOR HE BREATHED FORTH HIS SOUL WHILE STANDING IN PRAYER BEFORE THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT. THE REVERSE OF THE MEDAL SHOWS THE IMAGE OF THE CROSS. AROUND THE MARGIN ARE THE INITIALS OF LATIN WORDS WHICH FORM VERSES SUPPOSED TO HAVE ORIGINATED WITH THE HOLY FATHER BENEDICT HIMSELF. THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION IS: "BE GONE SATAN! SUGGEST NOT TO ME THY VAIN THINGS. THE CUP THOU PROFFEREST ME IS EVIL; DRINK THOU THY POISON." IN THE ANGLES FORMED BY THE ARMS OF THE CROSS ARE THE LETTERS C.S.P.B., SIGNIFYING "CROSS OF THE HOLY FATHER BENEDICT." THE LETTERS ON THE CROSS ITSELF HAVE THIS MEANING: "MAY THE HOLY CROSS BE MY LIGHT; LET NOT THE DRAGON BE MY GUIDE."
