The Medal of St. Benedict

Today is the Feast of St. Benedict, and as a part of the celebration I shall introduce to readers a devotional object, known as The Medal of St. Benedict .

(Via EWTN.)

Please check out the link to the EWTN article in the previous paragraph for much useful info on the wearing and history of the medal.

I find it interesting that this medal would be of great use to alcoholics and addicts, you will know what I mean when you read the prayers associated with it. (especially the lines: The cup you offer is evil; drink the poison yourself!)

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
