Large Saint Benedcit Medal for Men
The St. Benedict medal is one of the oldest and most honored medals and, due to the belief in its power against evil, is also known as the "devil-chasing medal".
The back of the medal carries the Vade Retro Satana ("Begone, Satan!") formula which has been used to ward off evil since the 15th century.
The medal is used as a protection amulet to ward off spiritual and physical dangers, especially those related to evil, poison, and temptation. Surrounding the figure of Saint Benedict are the words Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur! ("May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death").
