Frequently Asked Questions  (FAQs)

SPECIFIC PRODUCT QUESTIONS

What kind of wood is this crucifix made of?

For this item, it is  made of solid wood,  American walnut   and Bubinga.

What is the size and dimension of this particular St. Benedict Cross?

The dimensions are 6 x 10 x 1 inches. 

 

What is exorcised salt and where do you put it in the St. Benedict Cross?

 

Exorcised salt is a sacramental of the Church.   When the Church asks publicly and authoritatively in the name of Jesus Christ that a person or object be protected against the power of the Evil One and withdrawn from his dominion, it is called exorcism.  Jesus performed exorcisms and from Him the Church has received the power and office of exorcising.  In the prayer of exorcising salt, God endows material elements with a supernatural power of protecting those who use them with faith against all the attacks of the enemy.


Exorcised salt is used either in areas considered infected by demonic forces or for the protection of homes, buildings, and fields.

A hole is strategically drilled at the bottom of the crucifix and sealed with wax.  If a spiritual need arises, one simply punctures this seal to let out the exorcised salt.  The following prayer is recommended: 

"I seal this {room or home } in the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ our Savior, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen."

 

Are there any significance to the cross?

For families, the two species of wood represent the couples, particularly, the husband and wife plucked from different  backgrounds to be one.

The St. Benedict medal is embedded on the Cross and gains a possibility of 20 indulgences to those who use this with faith and devotion.  The  St. Benedict medal is tinted with gold and silver leafing to accent the Latin inscriptions.

GENERAL  PRODUCT QUESTIONS

How do we order?

You can purchase  a St. Benedict crucifix on our online Benedictine Shop.   Or if you prefer, you can call us toll-free at 1-888-510-4492. 

What form of payment do you accept? 

For online  orders, we prefer PAYPAL.  You can use your debit or credit card.   We also use SQUARE.

For  phone orders, you can dictate your debit or credit cards to us and we will key this in our machine.  We also accept international or domestic money order. 

Can I choose the type of wood for my St. Benedict Cross?

Yes.  The  available choices are maple, oak, birch, cherry, beechwood,   bloodwood, mahogany, walnut, wenge, purple heart, bubinga.

How long does it take to build the St. Benedict Cross?

It takes two weeks on the average. 

How long does it take to receive our order?

You will get it in 2-3 business days if we have the item in our inventory.

Otherwise,  we recommend allowing   about   10 – 14 business days after we receive your order.  We will contact you by your preferred mode of communication for  an update of your  order.      Please note that international orders to Canada might take longer. 

Can we buy the St.   Benedict Cross in any Catholic Gift Shops in the US?

No.    At the moment, it is only available online or by contacting us.

What do you mean the Cross of St.  Benedict comes with a Certificate of Authenticity?

The product is an original hand-crafted artwork by Oblate Patrick Campbell .  Thus, no two crosses are alike. The Certificate of Authencity is a specialty paper that shows  an identifiable unique code and number plate with the  signature of Patrick Campbell  and the signature of the priest who blessed the cross with an Approved Benedictine  Prayer.  This information is recorded in our book. 

Unfortunately, this service has not been available to our Canadian Buyers yet but will be made available to them in December 2014. 

As St. Basil the Great says, "The honor shown the image passes over to the archetype." He also illustrates the concept by saying, "If I point to a statue of Caesar and ask you 'Who is that?', your answer would properly be, 'It is Caesar.' When you say such you do not mean that the stone itself is Caesar, but rather, the name and honor you ascribe to the statue passes over to the original, the archetype, Caesar himself." So it is with an Icon.  You are putting honor to the Icon to which it represents and not the substance.   God carefully chose  wood to redeem us in the person of Jesus Christ. 

Is the Crucifix Blessed Already By a Benedictine Priest?

No, we do not sell blessed items.

If requested, the St. Benedict Cross will be brought to a holy priest who will pray   a  special Benedictine Blessing (with exorcism prayers) for the St. Benedict medal to gain favor of the 20 indulgences.

How will the Cross of St. Benedict Become a 3rd Class Relic?

After purchase, the Cross of St. Benedict will be touched to the FIRST CLASS RELIC of the TRUE CROSS in our Oratory.

What is perpetual prayer enrollment?

Your specific prayer intentions will be recorded in our "Book of Life" and we will include your petitions in our  daily monastic celebration of the Liturgy of Hours,  Holy Mass, Holy Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Adoration.  Each purchase of the Cross of St. Benedict entitles you to a perpetual spiritual enrollment and the owner shares in the prayers of our  community forever.

How long can our prayer intention be? 

It can be as long as needed.  We assign one or more community members to pray for the specific intentions  in our Adoration time.   We also include your intentions in our prayer book  at the Legion of Mary in our parish.    Email or mail us your specific prayer requests. 

What is the feedback of  those who own the Cross of St. Benedict?

We have excellent feedback and have received numerous testimonial of healing in families.  The Clergy  and Bishops of various Diocese are well pleased with the ministry and the product.  Priests engaged in spiritual warfare recommend this powerful sacramental.   Bishops, Cardinals, Priests, Pastors, Deacons,  and Priests of the Domestic Church (Fathers) have been amazed at the beauty of these crosses.   It has also been a powerful protection for children who are far away from home.  Even those who left the Catholic Church have  accepted the Cross of St. Benedict in their homes.   It is our goal that every Christian home has a wooden St. Benedict cross  for protection.  

Can we donate to the ministry?  

Yes.  In fact, generous amount of the proceeds of your purchase go to our monastery, our parish home and a charitable Catholic and/or Christian organization  or person who needs help.   

Those who cannot afford the full price  of the St. Benedict Cross are given affordable financing terms of their choice.  Thus, no one who wants to have this cross will be denied (not yet available outside the US).

    Table top edition of St. Benedict Cross

    Posted by Claudia on 18th Dec 2014

    Beautiful work in this table top edition of the St. Benedict Cross. It is easy to remove from the solid wood base for use in prayer. Thank for your careful attention to detail in the making of this cross and for your ministry to families, Patrick and Joy!
