stabat mater dolorosa

saints: St. Benedict and his sacramentals

The clock is ticking quickly away on my self-imposed deadline to get caught up, so I don't have time to make the post I want to make -- I happened across this excellent information on St. Benedict and his sacramentals, plus September features the feast days of a few of my favorite saints like St. Cyprian, Our Lady of Sorrows, and Sts. Cosmas and Damian, and *God* how I have missed writing about interesting things and posting cool prayers and images on this blog! -- but I still want to share a couple of links about St. Benedict anyway. I'll post again later about status update stuff and the latest coupon codes.

So here is a link about the medal of St. Benedict, its uses, and its authorized blessing formula.
And here's another, which explains the symbols on the medal in detail (with pictures).
