The Saint Benedict Medal is a Christian sacramental medal containing symbols and text related to the life of Saint Benedict of Nursia, used by Roman Catholics, as well as Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists, and the Western Orthodox, in the Benedictine Christian tradition.
Also known as the "devil-chasing medal", it is one of the oldest most honored medals used by Christians and is well known for its power against the evil spirit, temptations, and its efficacy in healing mental and bodily sufferings. It is the only medal in the Church that is blessed with a special exorcism. Countless conversions have been wrought through the use of this medal. It has been devoutly used for centuries - in war, pestilence, natural disasters, and accidents of all kinds. Catholics wear it around the neck, attach it to their scapular or rosary, and often place it in the foundations of their buildings or above the doors in their house.
