San Benito,

quien vive en el cielo,

Dear Lord,

I pray for the strength to do my duty.

I pray for the knowledge to make the right decisions.

I pray for the courage to face whatever may come my way.

And I pray that you will always be with me in times of trouble.


Dear God,

Grant us the grace of perseverance in the face of adversity and the strength to overcome our hardships. We ask for this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who didst will to be born of the Virgin Mary and to bear the sins of all men, have mercy on us.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who didst rise again from the dead, and by thy glorious resurrection conquer death and open to us the gates of heaven, have mercy on us.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who after forty days’ fast hast appeared to thy disciples in Galilee and ascended into heaven in their sight, vouchsafe to bring us all there also with thee.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who hast promised that we shall rise again at the last day to receive our reward according to our merits; grant that we may so pass through life as always to remember death and so die as never more to sin.



We are grateful for your prayerful advocacy for our work making God’s abundance available to all.  

Here’s a prayer in honor of St. Benedict, a 6th century Christian whose beliefs and instructions on religious life formed what is now known as the Rule of Saint Benedict:

Stir up in your Church, O Lord, the spirit that animated Benedict, that we may learn to love what he loved and practice what he taught.  As You filled Benedict with the spirit of all the righteous, grant us, your servants, who celebrate his life and all the good You have accomplished through him, his followers, and his holy Rule, to be filled with his spirit, that we may faithfully accomplish Your complete will.  Amen.

Here’s a prayer attributed to Saint Benedict himself:

Gracious and Holy Father, give us the wisdom to discover You, the intelligence to understand You, the diligence to seek after You, the patience to wait for You, eyes to behold You, a heart to meditate upon You, and a life to proclaim You.  Amen.

3 things you need to know about St. Benedict’s medal

1. But who was St. Benedict?

Saint Benedict was born in Nursia, Italy, around the year 480. The twin brother of Saint Scholastica, he is considered to be the father of Western monasticism, and even though there was already a thriving monastic tradition in other Mediterranean regions, his Rule (known, appropiately enough, as the “Rule of St. Benedict”) became the basis of organization for many religious orders, starting with, of course, the whole Benedictine family, which includes Cistercians and Trappists.
Guido of Arezzo

So, in order to fully grasp the meaning of the different symbols and customs associated with the medal, one must know about the particular events of St. Benedict’s life. For example, there is a tradition that the medal protects bearers from poison. This is rooted in a story about Benedict’s holiness and his special powers to discern good and evil. When Benedict had been living for at least three years as a hermit in a cave, some men who were living together as a religious community came to him for direction, since their abbot had recently died. They asked Benedict to take over their community. Some of the monks, though, didn’t like the plan of bringing in an outsider, and attempted to kill Benedict with poisoned bread and wine. However, when St. Benedict made the sign of the Cross over these things as he said grace, he came to know they were poisoned, so he toppled the cup and commanded a raven to carry off the bread. That’s why tradition says St. Benedict’s medal protects you from poisoning.

2. Besides poison, the medal is believed to…

a) Ward off witchcraft and any other diabolical and haunting influence. That means it also protects you from temptation, delusion or being tormented by evil spirits.

b) Obtain the conversion of sinners, bringing them into the Catholic Church, especially when they are in danger of death. That is why the medal has been also nicknamed “the Cross of the Happy Death” when it is attached to a crucifix.

c) Secure the timely and healthy birth of children, as tradition also claims it is a great means of protection against contagious diseases.

3. Wait… can you go back to the “Cross of the Happy Death” part?

Sure. If the medal is attached to a crucifix, then we are in the presence of a “Cross of a Happy Death,” not only because of the exorcising properties of the medal and the image of Christ’s Body itself, but because of St. Benedict’s very particular patronage, based on what tradition tells about his own death. Pope St. Gregory the Great (A.D. ca. 540-604) describes St. Benedict’s passing:

“Six days before he left this world he gave orders to have his sepulchre opened, and forthwith falling into an ague, he began with burning heat to wax faint; and when as the sickness daily increased, upon the sixth day he commanded his monks to carry him into the oratory, where he did arm himself receiving the Body and Blood of our Saviour Christ; and having his weak body holden up betwixt the hands of his disciples, he stood with his own hands lifted up to heaven; and as he was in that manner praying, he gave up the ghost.”
