Rosary #30 • Wed, May 26, 2021

This is a beautiful rosary with natural ocean blue agate gemstone Hail Mary beads, and white pearl Our Father beads. The centerpiece is the St. Benedict Medal. On the front is inscribed "SMQLIVB" which stands for "Sunt Mala Quae Libas, Ipse Venena Bibas" (Evil are the things thou proferrest, drink thou thy own poison) and "VRSNSMV" which stands for "Vade Retro Satana, Nonquam Suade Mihi Vana" (Begone Satan, do not suggest to me thy vanities). The back has the inscription "EIVS IN OBITV NRO PRAESENTIA MVNIAMVR" (May we, at our death, be fortified by His presence). The crucifix is a simple one, juxtaposed on top of another St. Benedict medal. The chain and all eye pins and jump rings are silver plated.
