Medal of St Benedict
Power and Effects of the Medal of St. Benedict



The Medal of St. Benedict is powerful to award of all dangers of body and should coming from the evil spirit. We are exposed to the wicked assaults of the devil day and night. St. Peters says, “Your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8). In the life of St. Benedict we see how the devil tried to do harm to his soul and body, and also to his spiritual children. Father Paul of Moll, saintly Flemish Benedictine wonder-worker (1824-1896), frustrated the evil doings of the spirit of darkness chiefly through the use of the Medal of St. Benedict, which has proved a most powerfully protection against the snares and delusions of the old enemy. Missionaries in pagan lands use this Medal with so great effect that is has been given the remarkable name, “The devil-chasing Medal.”

The Medal is, therefore, a powerful means:

* To destroy witchcraft and all other diabolical influences.
To keep away the spells of magician, of wicked and evil-minded persons.
To impart protection to persons tempted, deluded or tormented by evil spirits.
To obtain the conversion of sinners, especially when they are in danger of death.
To serve as an armor in temptations against holy purity.
To destroy the effects of poison.
To secure a timely and healthy birth for children.
To afford protection against storms and lightening.
To sever as an efficacious remedy for bodily afflictions and a means of protection against contagious diseases.

Finally, the Medal has often been used with admirable effect even for animals infected with plague or other maladies, and for fields when invaded by harmful insects.

A prayer by St. Benedict

O gracious and holy Father,
give us the wisdom to perceive Thee,
intelligence to understand Thee,
diligence to seek Thee,
patience to wait for Thee,
eyes to behold Thee,
a heart to meditate upon Thee,
and a life to proclaim Thee;
through the powers of the Spirit
of Jesus Christ our Lord.
