 The St. Benedict medal is one of the oldest and most honored medals. Due to the belief in its power against evil, it is also known as the "devil-chasing medal". The medal is used to ward off spiritual and physical dangers, especially those related to evil, poison, and temptation.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE LATIN:

The horizontal beam of the Cross has 5 letters: 

N.D.S.M.D...

Non Draco Sit Mihi Dux

Let not the dragon be my guide.

Encircling the Cross on the right side are the letters V.R.S.N.S.M.V., meaning:

Vade Retro Satana; Nunquam Suade Mihi Vana

Begone Satan!  Do not suggest vain things to me!

Encircling the cross on the left side are the letters S.M.Q.L.I.V.B., meaning:

Sunt Mala Quae Libas. Ipse Venena Bibas

The drink you offer is evil. Drink that poison yourself!

At the top of the circle is the word PAX, which means Peace.

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. The medal is one of the oldest and most honored medals used by Christians and due to the belief in its power against evil is also known as the "devil-chasing medal". As early as the 11th century, it may have initially had the form of Saint Benedict's cross, and was used by Pope Leo IX. In widespread use after its formal approval by Pope Benedict XIV in the 18th century, the medal is used by Roman Catholics to ward off spiritual and physical dangers, especially those related to evil, poison, and temptation.
