Saint Benedict Medallion
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. The reverse side of the medal carries the Vade retro satana ("Begone, Satan!") formula which has been used by Christians to ward off evil since the 15th century. Sometimes carried as part of the rosary, it is also found individually.
Any time you use St. Benedict's Medal or Medal-Ring for these particular purposes, tradition invites to say five Gloria Patri to Jesus Passion, three Hail Mary to the Blessed Virgin Mary and a Lord's Prayer to St. Benedict. In order to enter more deeply into the spirit of devotion, it is advisable to say these prayers every day.
