World's tallest Cross of St. Benedict to be unveiled in Peru

.- The world's tallest Cross of St. Benedict will be unveiled on July 11 in the Lima suburb of Pachacamac by the monks from the Monastery of the Incarnation.

According to the monks, the cross towers to a height of 42 feet and can be seen for miles.

“The presence of this cross on Tomina Hill is intended to be a sign of special blessing for all Peruvians, as well as a pilgrimage shrine for all those who seek a place of spirituality and a more personal encounter with the Lord,” they added.

The Cross of St. Benedict is famous for its abbreviations in Latin, which are the initials of an ancient prayer of exorcism and protection. It is a sign that Christ has overcome sin and death and that his power is greater than the forces of evil, greater than the evils inside of each person, and greater than the lies and corruption that come from outside.
