Benedict Medal Prayer


May the holy cross be my light! May the dragon never be my guide! Be gone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities! Evil is the cup you offer me, Drink the poison yourself!


Crux sacra sit mihi lux! Non draco sit mihi dux! Vade retro, Satana! Numquam suade mihi vana! Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas!

Latin Pronunciation
