St Benedict Prayer Card with Gold Foil
St. Benedict dazzles with special touches of gold foil!
The medal of St. Benedict is said to protect from evil. Once during St. Benedict's life, a group of treacherous monks tried to poison him- but when St. Benedict said a prayer over the poisoned wine, the glass miraculously shattered and he was saved!
The letters around the front of the St. Benedict Medal (V.R.S.N.S.M.V. S.M.Q.L.I.V.B) stand for the Latin phrase which we've featured on the back of the prayer card:
"Vade retro satana! Nunquam suade miei vana! Sunt mala quad libas. Ipse venena bibas!"
which means, "Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities! What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself!"
(St. Benedict enamel pin sold separately)
Each card is 2.56"x2.56" printed in the U.S.A. on 19pt Super paper stock with Soft Touch finish.
