St. Benedictus Medallion – Pray This Powerful Prayer!

The St. Benedict’s Medal is a powerful devotional medal that represents the protection of St. Benedict and his followers. The medal was created in 1483 by Pope Sixtus IV who was devoted to the saint and wanted to spread his message during a time of great turmoil within Europe. It’s also known as the “Holy Medal of Saint Benedict,” or simply “St. Benedict’s Medal,” because it can be used by anyone who desires protection from evil forces through prayers addressed directly to Sts Peter and Paul, whose images are on both sides along with an image of St. Benedict himself in the center with his arms raised up asking God for forgiveness for all those who wear this powerful medallion around their neck or pinned onto their clothing as they pray each day while wearing it regularly over long periods of time (i.e., daily).

As a powerful devotional, the St. Benedict medal is a symbol of protection and guidance from God. It can be worn by Catholics to ward off evil, but it may also be used as part of an overall spiritual arsenal that includes other devotionals such as prayer beads or holy water.

The medal was created in Italy in the early 1800s by Father Peter Bertoni who was bedridden with tuberculosis and wrote poems while he waited for death. One day he saw Jesus bathed in light standing before him saying “Arise, follow Me.” Jesus gave him instructions on how to make this medal which would aid those who wear it. In 1825, Father Bertoni died at age 26 but not before he had made several thousand medals and distributed them throughout Europe after his death through another priest named Father Aubertin who had met Peter during his last days on earth
