Description 

Call down God’s blessing and protection upon you wherever you are with this Saint Benedict Token.

 

The St. Benedict Medal is a powerful sacramental in the Catholic Church and is well-known for warding off evil.


The face of this token features a carved image of St. Benedict of Nursia and items significant during his lifetime, including a cross, his Rule for Monasteries, a poisoned cup, and a raven. Surrounding the saint are Latin phrases, which translated read: “The Cross of our holy father Benedict” and “May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death!”


On the back of this token, the cross is dominant. On the arms of the cross are the initial letters of a rhythmic Latin prayer, which translated means: “May the holy cross be my light! May the dragon never be my guide!”

In the angles of the cross, the letters C S P B stand for Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti (The cross of our holy father Benedict). Around the margin of the back of the medal, the letters V R S N S M V - S M Q L I V B are the initial letters, as mentioned above, of a Latin prayer of exorcism.

This Italian-made, bronze colored 1.25” token fits perfectly into a pocket or a purse, allowing you to keep this holy object with you, even on the go.
