St Benedict Cross

St. Benedict Cross

This cross is central to a larger piece, the Benedict Medal, which is dedicated to the piety and devotion in honour of St. Benedict of Nursia (Spanish and Latin: San Benito) who died in 547. Since then, 16 popes have been called Benedict, including the current Pontiff.

A Few Of Our Best Sellers!

book1Most Catholics did not grow up learning how to pray with others for healing or expecting that their prayers could be powerful and transformative. Francis MacNutt, an early leader in the Catholic charismatic renewal and head of Christian Healing Ministries, encourages Catholics to do both. This easy-to-read and informative book includes a step-by-step guide for how to pray with others; explains the various types of healings that we can expect--physical, emotional, spiritual; discusses the healing effects of the sacraments; and features stories of people who have been healed through prayer.

book2Turning to the Pope’s book, its ten chapters cover the career of Jesus from his baptism to Peter’s confession and the Transfiguration, with full chapters assigned to the gospel of the Kingdom, the sermon on the mount, the Lord’s prayer, the parables, images in John’s Gospel and a few titles of Jesus. It is a haphazard mixture of life and doctrine.

In his preface, the scholar Ratzinger bravely declares that he and not the Pope is the author of the book and that everyone is free to contradict him. I was first tempted to say, “Yes, I will”, but quickly realised that a frontal assault on Jesus of Nazareth from the standpoint of present-day Gospel criticism would be inappropriate. The Pope was engaged not in academic research but in a series of meditations on the Gospels for his own and his readers’ edification. The efficacy of these meditations cannot be judged by academic criteria.

Prayers for Surviving DepressionWhen depression strikes, prayer can seem impossible, a distant light in the dark land of loneliness. Words fail, and even the desire for God fades into night.

This unique prayer book offers prayers from those who have suffered through depression's dark days and night, and yet continue to search for light and strength in their faith. Together with favorite prayers from the Catholic tradition, they offer comfort and hope that God is close to the brokenhearted. A perfect companion to Surviving Depression: A Catholic Approach.

Includes: Blessings and Affirmations, Guided Scriptural Meditations, Prayers of Saints who Offer Hope, Praying Through Depression, The Stations of the Cross, The Seven Sorrows of Mary, the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary, Praying When You Can't Pray, Prayers for Family Members and Friends.prayerbook - prayer book - way of the cross

God of Miraclesby Michael H. Brown, focusing on how God works in our lives, the miracles that are possible, the way we prepare ourselves to receive them, the route to holiness, with stunning examples of the miraculous
and a deep sense of encouragement. Does God really heal? Does He really watch over your life? Does He really cause all those fateful
happenings and triumphant moments and coincidences that mystify us?

A book that will inspire you and bring you up from the "downs" of life and give you hope no matter how hopeless life can seem! This is one of our most popular ever.

Teaching Church FathersThe Fathers of the Church have been a vital source of wisdom and inspiration for countless saints, popes, peasants, and converts throughout the history of the Church. In this powerful one-volume library, Father Willis presents more than 250 selected doctrinal topics in an exhaustive selection of writings from the major sources of the Fathers. He lets the Fathers speak for themselves on a wide variety of spiritual themes.

“The Teachings of the Church Fathers is arranged thematically, much like the Catechism of the Catholic Church, to which this book is a useful supplement. He has gathered key paragraphs from the Fathers, collecting them under 250 topics and providing extensive cross-references. The result is a fat book that is easy to read. The Catholic who wants to convince non-Catholics of the antiquity of Church teachings and practices can find just the evidence he needs.”
—Karl Keating, Author, Catholicism and Fundamentalism

St Benedict Medal CrossThe History of the St. Benedict Medal

On the front of the medal is Saint Benedict holding a cross in his right hand, the object of his devotion, and in the left his rule for monasteries. In the back is a poisoned cup, in reference to the legend of Benedict, which explains that hostile monks attempted to poison him: the cup containing poisoned wine shattered when the saint made the sign of the cross over it (and a raven carried away a poisoned loaf of bread). Above the cup are the words Crux sancti patris Benedicti ("The Cross of our holy father Benedict"). Surrounding the figure of Saint Benedict are the words Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur! ("May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death"), since he was always regarded by the Benedictines as the patron of a happy death.
On the back is a cross, containing the letters C S S M L - N D S M D, initials of the words Crux sacra sit mihi lux! Non draco sit mihi dux! ("May the holy cross be my light! May the dragon never be my overlord!").Surrounding the back of the medal are the letters V R S N S M V - S M Q L I V B, in reference to Vade retro satana: Vade retro Satana! Nunquam suade mihi vana! Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas! ("Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities! What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself!") and finally, located at the top is the word PAX which means "peace".
