The story of St. Benedict was born at Nursia, Italy, in 480 and had a profound veneration for the holy Cross and for our Saviour Crucified. In virtue of the Sign of the Cross, he wrought many miracles and exercised great power over the spirits of darkness.
Around the image of St. Benedict are these words in Latin "May his presence protect us in the hour of death."
The reverse of the Medal shows the image of the Cross. Around the margin are the initials of Latin words which form verses supposed to have originated with the holy Father Benedict himself. The words are in latin but the translation on the cross are "May the holy Cross be my light; let not the dragon be my guide."
This medal can be given for baptismal, christening or First Communion gifts. There is no special way to wear the medal but people prefer to wear the cross side image to the front.
