The Saint Benedict medallion holds significant spiritual symbolism that carries both historical and contemporary meaning. It is often associated with protection, blessings, and invoking divine assistance. The key elements of the medallion and their meanings include:
Cross: The prominent cross on the medallion symbolizes Christ's triumph over sin and death. It serves as a reminder of faith, salvation, and Christ's ultimate sacrifice for humanity.
Letters CSPB and CSSML: These letters stand for the Latin phrases "Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti" (The Cross of the Holy Father Benedict) and "Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux" (May the Holy Cross be my light). These phrases emphasize seeking protection and guidance through the power of the cross.
Numeral Values: The numbers on the medallion, often found on the arms of the cross, hold their own significance. They represent a form of exorcism prayer, invoking the power of God against evil forces.
Initials VRSNSMV and SMQLIVB: These initials represent the Latin phrases "Vade Retro Satana! Nunquam Suade Mihi Vana!" (Step back, Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities!) and "Sunt Mala Quae Libas. Ipse Venena Bibas." (The drink you offer is evil. Drink the poison yourself.) These phrases emphasize the rejection of negative influences and the reliance on God's protection.
