Home Blessing - St Benedict | The Catholic Company - This Home Blessing of St. Benedict is a decorative way to display the St. Benedict medal with knotted nylon cords and beads that can hang from a doorknob The purpose of using the St. Benedict medal is to call down God's blessing and protection upon us and our homes through the intercession of St. Benedict. Sacramentals used in this way become a constant silent prayer and reminder of our identity as followers and lovers of Christ.
SAINT BENEDICT: O God, who made the Abbot Saint Benedict an outstanding master in the school of divine service, grant, we pray, that, putting nothing before love of you, we may hasten with a loving heart in the way of your commands. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
