The Medal of Saint Benedict in painted glass from the first chapel at Mary Help of Christians Abbey, Belmont, North Carolina.

The Medal of Saint Benedict is the most powerful sacramental in the Roman Church. On the arms of the cross are the initial letters of a rhythmic Latin prayer: Crux sacra sit mihi lux! Nunquam draco sit mihi dux! (May the holy cross be my light! May the dragon never be my guide!).

In the angles of the cross, the letters C S P B stand for Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti (The cross of our holy father Benedict).

    What is texture?
    Texture goes beyond mere pattern or form into something more complex and organic that you could touch, feel and maybe even identify with your eyes closed if your hand were big or small enough. These are visual representations of a non-visual sense: touch.
