St. Benedict Medals 

It was devotion to the Cross, the sign of our redemption, that gave rise to the Medal of St. Benedict, for devotion to this medal is, above all, devotion to the sign of our salvation. It is the only medal in the Church that is blessed with a special exorcism.

Thus it is well known for its power against the evil spirit, temptations, and its efficacy in healing mental and bodily sufferings. 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.
