ST. BENEDICT GARDEN PLAQUE
This Saint Benedict garden plaque is sculpted with laser precision and painted to look like weathered limestone. It depicts St. Benedict in the center with the front of the Jubilee medal on the left and the back of the medal on the right. St. Benedict is holding a crosier in his right hand symbolizing his office as abbot and in his left hand he is holding a book representing his Rule; a cup recalling one attempt to poison him; and the crow that carried away poisoned bread for the saint so that no one could eat it. Written across the top in Latin is: “EIUS IN OBITU NOSTRO PRAESENTIA MUNIAMUR” which roughly translates as, “may we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death."
Made of a resin-stone mix, this plaque measures approximately 7½”H x 12”W x 1”D and has two key-hole hooks on the back for hanging.
