The St. Benedict Medal, among the other medals, is especially effective against evil spirits due to the fact that this is the only medal that has an exorcism prayer inscribed into it.
That is why for this medal to be truly effective against evil spirits, it is very important to have it blessed by a Catholic priest, using a special prayer blessing. Many of Laudate Mariam's products, such as the St. Benedict Rosary and the St. Benedict Door Hanger, feature the St. Benedict Medal.
Please explain to the priest that this door hanger includes a St. Benedict medal. Please request the priest to recite the special blessing for St. Benedict Medals below, when blessing our products which include the St. Benedict Medals:
Exorcism and Blessing of St. Benedict Medals
Priest (P). Our help is in the name fo the Lord.
Response (R). Who made heaven and earth.
P. I purge you medals of evil by God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth and of the sea and of all that they contain. O every power of the adversary, every cohort of the devil, every attack and appearance of Satan - get thee out of these medals and fly afar! And may they become for all who will use them a help for body and soul, in the name of the Father Almighty, in the name of Jesus Christ, His Son our Lord, in the name of the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete, and in the love of the self-same Lord Jesus Christ, Who shall come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.
P. Almighty God, lavish Dispenser of every good, we thy suppliants pray that, by the intercession of St. Benedict, thou wouldst pour out thy blessing on these sacred medals inscribed with letters and symbols appointed by Thee. Let all who will wear them with minds intent on good works deserve to obtain health of body and spirit, the grace of making progress in holiness, as well as the indulgences which have been granted. And may they escape by Thy merciful help every onslaught and fraud of the devil, and finally stand before Thee sinless and holy. Through Christ our Lord.
(The priest then sprinkles the medals with holy water)
