THE SAINT BENEDICT MEDAL (More is HERE)
Get one for each member of the family involved/living in the haunted location, need to wear it always such as on a chain around
the neck, even in the bath/shower (get the chain blessed too). If you cannot get these we do have sources or you can get them very
inexpensively from us for a donation as we do not sell these medals of protection. Our Children had one taped under their cribs,
hard to put one around their necks at that tiny and tender age.
Another good suggestion for protection, get ‘four more’, that is ‘one’ for each corner of your property or four corners of your home if in an apartment.
Again these are the most important in your arsenal of protection, if you can’t find them please contact us and we can supply them to you
at a very minimal donation. Carry this medal with you at all times, my son when he was in kindergarten, had one strung into his shoe laces low below the
tongue to keep him from seeing it and getting curious about the ‘shiny metal thing’. It provided an extra safe feeling knowing he
was protected in yet another way especially since in this work I was being attacked in a variety of ways I didn’t know about some
of them until much later. If not for the medal of Saint Benedict always around my neck since I was a teen, I might have been
physically attacked or even killed at the hands of demons and evil spirits.
It is hard to say, my choices were not the best and being the lead of a musical rock band puts you in potential temptation every other
day. Based on what I have experienced throughout my life, it is a safe bet to say that is definitely true. We believe use and wear of
this medal and saying the appropriate St Benedict prayers will even prevent demonic possession as will living a holy life. This
and other protection medals, and ‘symbols’ that we suggest using for ‘protection’; these are consistent with the theological ideals of
the field of ‘Demonology’ through the historical doctrine of the two-thousand years of church history. You will find that more
notable ‘Demonologists’, Exorcists, deliverance ministers and others who do the work we do to some extent in this ‘liberation’
healing ministry, will always carry one of these.
PRAYER: Approved Blessing of the Medal of St. Benedict
(Copy and paste this prayer and give it to your parish priest to say, be sure to have a holy water vile handy for the last step of the
Medals of Saint Benedict are sacramentals that may be blessed legitimately by any priest — not necessarily Benedictine
(Instr., 26 Sept. 1964; Can. 1168). The following English form may be used.
V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. (you) Who made heaven and earth.
In the name of God the Father + almighty, who made heaven and earth, the seas and all that is in them, I exorcise these
medals [and crucifixes] against the power and attacks of the evil ones. May all who use these medals devoutly be blessed with
health of soul and body. In the name of the Father + almighty, of the Son + Jesus Christ our Lord, and of the Holy + Spirit the
Paraclete, and in the love of the same Lord Jesus Christ who will come on the last day to judge the living and the dead, and
the world by fire.
Let us pray. Almighty God, the boundless source of all good things, we humbly ask that, through the intercession of Saint
Benedict, you pour out your blessings + upon these medals. May those who use them devoutly and earnestly strive to perform
good works be blessed by you with health of soul and body, the grace of a holy life, and remission of the temporal punishment
due to sin.
May they also with the help of your merciful love, resist the temptation of the evil one and strive to exercise true charity and
justice toward all, so that one day they may appear sinless and holy in your sight. This we ask though Christ our Lord.
Important: (The medals are then sprinkled with holy water.)
DESCRIPTION OF THE MEDAL
On one side the medal has a cross, the sign of our redemption, the protecting shield given us by God to ward off the fiery arrows of
evil spirits. In the angles of the cross are found these four letters:
C.S.P.B. They stand for the words: Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti: The Cross of the Holy Father Benedict. On the vertical bar of the
cross itself are found the letters: C.S.S.M.L., and on the horizontal bar of the cross: N.D.S.M.D.
They signify: Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux, Non Draco Sit Mihi Dux
This means: May the holy cross be my light, let not the dragon be my guide.
Round the margin of the medal, beginning at the right hand on top,
we have the following letters:
V.R.S.N.S.M.V.S.M.Q.L.I.V.B., They stand for the verses: Vade Retro, Satana! Nunquam Suade Mihi Vana. Sunt Mala Quae Libas
Ipse Venena Bibas.
The English words are: Begone, Satan! Suggest not vain things to me. Evil is the cup thou offerest; Drink thou thine own poison.
The reverse of the medal bears the image of St. Benedict holding in his right hand the Cross, in the power of which he wrought so
many miracles, and in his left hand bearing the Holy Rule, which leads all its followers by the way of the Cross to Eternal Light.
On a pedestal to the right of St. Benedict is the poisoned cup, shattered when he made the sign of the cross over it. On a pedestal
to the left is a raven about to carry away a loaf of poisoned bread
that a jealous enemy had sent to St. Benedict. Above the cup and the raven are the Latin words: Crux S-Patris Benedicti.
[The initials “C.S.P.B.” are found on the other side of the medal in the angles of the Cross — see above.]
Round the margin is the inscription:
Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur: “May his presence protect us in the hour of our death.”
Below St. Benedict we read:
ex SM Casino MDCCCLXXX (from holy Monte Cassino, 1880).
THE POWER AND EFFECTS OF THE MEDAL
No particular prayers are prescribed, for the very wearing and use of the medal is considered a “silent prayer” to God to grant us,
through the merits of St. Benedict, the favor of protection we request. Although a prayer to Saint Benedict that often comes on
the accompanied ‘pamphlet’ that details a description and history of the medal could be said from time to time, as I would I
“O holy Father, St. Benedict, blessed by God both in grace and in name, who, while
standing in prayer, with hands raised to heaven, didst most happily yield thy angelic
spirit into the hands of thy Creator, and hast promised zealously to defend against
all the snares of the enemy in the last struggle of death, those who shall daily
remind thee of thy glorious departure and heavenly joys; protect me, I beseech thee, O
glorious Father, this day and every day, by thy holy blessings, that I may never be
separated from our dear Lord, from the society of thyself, and of all the blessed.
Through the name Christ our Lord. Amen.”
