Wear the Saint Benedict medal to help protect your soul, your loved ones and your home from anything contrary to God’s love.
Also known as the Saint Benedict cross, this religious object is recognized as a symbol of opening doors and difficult paths.
On one side, the medal has an image of Saint Benedict, holding the Holy Rule in his left hand and a cross in his right. Around the medal's outer margin are the words "Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur" ("May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death").
The other side of the medal has a cross with the initials CSSML on the vertical bar which signify "Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux" ("May the Holy Cross be my light"). On the medal's margin are the Vade Retro Satana initials ("Begone Satan, do not suggest to me thy vanities.")
