Description

This is a traditional Dominican five-decade rosary. It will last a lifetime. All of my rosaries - should the construction break during normal prayer - may be returned at any time for free repairs.

Beads: Black onyx - 6x8mm ovals for the Aves and 8mm round for the Pater beads.

Center: 1" Red enamel Holy Spirit medal with the seven gifts on the reverse - wisdom, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, understanding, piety and fear of the Lord. Made in Italy.

Crucifix: Spectacular Veronica's Veil / Holy Face of Jesus Italian cross. The horizontal crossbar is adorned with the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts. The vertical crossbar reads "Sit Nomen Domini Benedictum" - "Blessed be the name of the Lord" in Latin. The back reads "Vade Retro Satana" or "Back Off Satan" in Latin. This phrase is also found on St Benedict medals made after 1780 and is part of a medieval Catholic formula for exorcism. Please continue reading below for more information regarding the history of this cross. Measures 2-1/4" high.

Length: Approximately 26" (This measurement represents the length from the bottom of the crucifix to the middle of the third decade.)

Construction: Chain link with wire-wrapped Pater beads and connection points for added durability. German silver wire.

Veronica's Veil

The Veil of Veronica, in Italian known as the Volto Santo or Holy Face, is a Christian relic of a piece of cloth which, according to tradition, bears the likeness of the face of Jesus not made by human hand.

Western tradition recounts that Saint Veronica from Jerusalem encountered Jesus along the Via Dolorosa on the way to Calvary. When she paused to wipe the blood and sweat off His face with her veil, His image was imprinted on the cloth. The event is commemorated by the Sixth Station of the Cross. According to some versions, St. Veronica later traveled to Rome to present the cloth to the Roman Emperor Tiberius, and the veil, possessing the Grace of God, was able to quench thirst, cure blindness, and even raise the dead.

"Vade Retro Satana" ("Go back" / "Step back" / "Back off" Satan) is a Medieval Catholic formula for exorcism, recorded in a 1415 manuscript found in the Benedictine Metten Abbey in Bavaria. It came to general attention in 1647, when women who were prosecuted for witchcraft declared that they had been unable to do harm where there was a cross, and the St. Michael's Benedictine Abbey in Metten was particularly exempt from their influence. A search of the monastery turned up crosses painted on the walls with the formula's initials. The meaning of those letters remained a mystery for some time, until the complete verses were found in a manuscript dating to 1415 in the abbey's library, next to an image of St. Benedict. The same formula was later found in an Austrian manuscript from 1340/50.

Crux Sancta Sit Mihi Lux
Non Draco Sit Mixi Dux
Vade Retro Satana
Non Suade Mihi Vana
Sunt Mala Quae Libas
Ipse Venena Bibas

Let the Holy Cross be my light
Let not the dragon be my guide
Step back Satan
Never tempt me with vain things
What you offer me is evil
You drink the poison yourself.

The formula received the approval of Pope Benedict XIV, and became part of the Roman Catholic ritual in 1742. Its popularity grew considerably in the 19th century, mainly due to the efforts of Venerable Leo Dupont (The Apostle of the Holy Face.)

In current Catholic tradition the formula is used to repel any possible evil thing or happening as a "spoken sacramental". The initials of this formula (VRSNSMV SMQLIVB or VRS:NSMV:SMQL:IVB) have often been engraved around crucifixes or Catholic Saint Benedict Medals. "The Vade Retro Satana" remains part of the Roman Catholic ritual following the 20th-century revision of the ritual and its final promulgation in 1999 via De exorcismis et supplicationibus quibusdam.
