The ‘Rule of Saint Benedict’ is often summarized with the phrase, ‘Ora et Labora”, which translated from latin means, “Pray and work”. With this phrase, St Benedict sought to lay the groundwork for a life that is filled with purpose and balance. Like many teachings of great saints, the wisdom he shared in his time is still applicable today. For this design, I wanted to highlight this motto, while also incorporating parts of the St. Benedict medal into the design. You will see the following phrases worked into the design:
V R S – Vade Retro Satana! – translates to “Begone satan!” // I V B – Ipse venena bibas! – translates “Drink the poison yourself!” // C S S M L – Crux Sancta Sit Mihi Lux! – translates to May the holy cross be my light! // My hope is that when you wear this shirt you can feel both the encouragement and the protection of St. Benedict.
