THE ANCIENT MIRACLES OF THE SAINT BENEDICT CROSS
Throughout antiquity, many Heavenly miracles have been attributed to God's grace working through the intercessory Sign of the Cross prayer; most notably by Saint Benedict, a 5th Century Catholic monk and canonized saint.
The Benedictine cross-medal, when blessed by a Catholic priest, is a sacramental to this testament. Saint Benedict's ancient ritual entails the medal bearer to make a sign of the cross on himself, while praying with devotion:
In the name of God the Father,
of the Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
and of the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete, Amen.
