Saint Benedict Military Rosary with Gun Metal Rosary Beads and St. Benedict Medal. Includes card shown.

Card reads:

Be strong and courageous, for the Lord will be with you wherever you go" Joshua 1:9

The "Battle Rosary" is based on the original pull chain rosary that was commissioned and procured by the US Government.

These rosaries were issued by the military upon request, to soldiers serving in World War I.

They could be found in World War II as well.

As St. Benedict is invoked against evil, his medals are considered particularly effective for warding off evil. The medal itself has an important prayer used in the Rite of Exorcism, in abbreviated form, on one side and an image of St. Benedict on the other.
