IN TODAY'S WORLD
WE ARE A PEOPLE READY FOR BATTLE
More and more we are aware of the great need of God inour lives. We pray for unity in our families and in our nation and world. We are noticing a upward swing of people ordering medals and asking for prayers, ST BENEDICT offers us the prayers of exorcism, Our GUARDIAN ANGELS and SAINT MICHAEL are there for us ....
A figural medal
of St Michael is at the center back of the loop on each rosary and the
center is of St Pio and Mary, both of whom fight spiritual warfare along
with St Michael. The Medals of St Benedict, are pre Jubilee 1880. (You
may chose either). This rosary is packed with powerful intercession
offered by St Benedict and his friends, St Michael the Archangel, St Pio
and Mary, the mother of our Lord, Jesus.

Wearing or keeping the Medal of Benedict on our person or in our wallet is a constant reminder of this spiritual warfare around us! Keeping one in our car, on our computer, anywhere it is visible is wonderful, although if hidden from sight, it still carries the power and message of hope against the evil one. Attach one to your rosary or pray the prayer of the 'niner' daily. This may also be a novena prayer.
*ST BENEDICT MEDAL*
In 1647 a manuscript dating back to 1415 was found at the Abbey of Metten (Bavaria), giving an explanation of the letters on the art. They are the initial letters of a Latin prayer of exorcism against Satan. The blessed Benedictine medal carries the same power against evil as does the true cross. The round Benedictine medal, the one we are most familiar with, is called the Jubilee Medal (struck in 1880 marking the 1000 th anniversary of St. Benedict's birth) But many existed before this time, including the ones used on the rosaries and chaplets here. All carry the same powerful message of intercession below:
JUBILEE MEDAL (1880)
SYMBOLS on THE
OBVERSE and REVERSE SIDES
St Benedict standing in center, holding the cross in his right hand, the book of monastic rule ("walk in God's ways, with the Gospel as our guide."). 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, sent by a jealous enemy to St. Benedict.
... WHAT THE MEDAL SAYS ...
*PRAYER of ST BENEDICT*
“O Glorious St. Benedict, sublime model of all virtues, pure vessel of God’s grace! Behold me, humbly kneeling at thy feet. I implore thy loving heart to pray for me before the throne of God. To thee I have recourse in all the dangers which daily surround me. Shield me against my enemies, inspire me to imitate thee in all things. May thy blessings be with me always, so that I may shun whatever God forbids and avoid the occasions of sin.”
“Graciously obtain for me from God those favors and graces of which I stand so much in need, in the trials, miseries and afflictions of life. Thy heart was always so full of love, compassion, and mercy towards those who were afflicted or troubled in any way. Thou didst never dismiss without consolation and assistance anyone who had recourse to thee. I therefore invoke thy powerful intercession in the confident hope that thou will hear my prayers and obtain for me the special grace and favor I so earnestly implore (mention it), if it be for the greater glory of God and the welfare of my soul.”
“Help me, O great St. Benedict, to live and die as a faithful child of God, to be ever submissive to His holy will, and to attain the eternal happiness of heaven. Amen.”
O Lord, I place
myself in your hands and dedicate myself to you. I pledge myself to do
your will in all things: To love the Lord God with all my heart, all my
soul, all my strength. Not to kill. Not to steal. Not to covet. Not to
bear false witness. To honor all persons. Not to do to another what I would
not wish done to myself. To chastise the body. Not to seek after pleasures.
To love fasting. To relieve the poor. To clothe the naked. To visit the
sick. To bury the dead. To help in trouble. To console the sorrowing. To
hold myself aloof from worldly ways. To prefer nothing to the love of Christ.
Not to give way to anger. Not to foster a desire for revenge. Not to entertain
deceit in the heart. Not to make a false peace. Not to forsake charity.
Not to swear, lest I swear falsely. To speak the truth with heart and tongue.
Not to return evil for evil. To do no injury: yea, even to bear patiently
any injury done to me. To love my enemies. Not to curse those who curse
me, but rather to bless them. To bear persecution for justice' sake. Not
to be proud. Not to be given to intoxicating drink. Not to be an over-eater.
Not to be lazy. Not to be slothful. Not to be a murmured. Not to be a detractor.
To put my trust in God. To refer the good I see in myself to God. To refer
any evil in myself to myself. To fear the Day of Judgment. To be in dread
of hell. To desire eternal life with spiritual longing. To keep death before
my eyes daily. To keep constant watch over my actions. To remember that
God sees me everywhere. To call upon Christ for defense against evil thoughts
that arises in my heart. To guard my tongue against wicked speech. To avoid
much speaking. To avoid idle talk. To read only what is good to read. To
look at only what is good to see. To pray often. To ask forgiveness daily
for my sins, and to seek ways to amend my life. To obey my superiors in
all things rightful. Not to desire to be thought holy, but to seek holiness.
To fulfill the commandments of God by good works. To love chastity. To
hate no one. Not to be jealous or envious of anyone. Not to love strife.
Not to love pride. To honor the aged. To pray for my enemies. To make peace
after a quarrel, before the setting of the sun. Never to despair of your
mercy, O God of Mercy. Amen.

"The intercession of St. Benedict is known to have power and our faith can release this power. The medal is reminder that we are protected by the power of Christ."
'Mary will raise up apostles of the latter times to make war against the evil one. . . . But the power of Mary over all the devils will especially shine forth in the latter times, when Satan will lay his snares against her heel: that is to say, her humble slaves and poor children, whom she will raise up to make war against him. They shall be little and poor in the world's esteem, and abased before all like the heel, trodden underfoot and persecuted as the heel is by other members of the body.
But in return for this they shall be rich in the grace of God, which Mary shall distribute to them abundantly. They shall be great and exalted before God in sanctity. Superior to all creatures by their lively zeal, and so well sustained with God's assistance that, with the humility of their heel, in union with Mary, they shall crush the head of the devil and cause Jesus Christ to triumph.' (St Louis de Monfort)
