The Medal or Cross of St. Benedict
Rev. Martin Veth, O.S.B. 48 page booklet.
This publication explains how the Medal of St. Benedict was first known “several hundred years before the year 1647!” There are two types: the Ordinary Medal and the Jubilee Medal; both are highly indulgenced, but more so for the Jubilee Medal. “Of the salutary effects produced through the pious use of the Medal, facts are narrated which might fill a large volume.” For this reason, the Church has raised the Medal of St. Benedict to the dignity of a sacramental and it is the only medal in existence which is honored with a blessing of its own in the Roman Ritual! The generous indulgences are fully explained, along with the history and much more.
