    It has been brought to my attention by a moderetor that I have been getting fairly rude a testy, so, I want to say that i am sorry and I do have a problem with typing before thinking it out. Yes, I have another major surgery day after tommorrow and I am very sorry that my real ways have been tampered with by fear.
    No excuses!
    I won't be able to use my computer until I get back home. a week or so.
    Again, Forgive me, Please

    No harm, no foul. Let's all hope you have a speedy recovery. I know what it's like to be buggered up and I have grown to HATE needles. You'll be in my prayers.

    I too, have a tendency to type before I think much (It's gotten me in trouble more than once). So I can identify. Hope all goes well.

    I sure know I have a tendency to hit the send button before I have thoroughly read my post and did editing. Sometimes, I'm so tired I just don't do the editing. There's also a time factor, there's only so much in one day:)

    I am new to the board and didn't know you were ill. I want you to know that even though we've never met, I will keep you in my prayers.

    Prayer is very powerful especially if several people pray for the same thing or person. Prayer can work miracles.

    I am reading a book on Poker by the legendary Doyle Brunson. He talks about the time when he was married only 4 months and woke up one morning with a sore throat. His newly wed is a pharmacist and made him go to the doctor. Turns out he had cancer that had spread throughout his body and was given 6 months to live. He had a lot of people praying for his recovery. Three months after that eventful surgery and the diagnosis, he returned to his doc for a visit. The doc was astonished. The cancer was gone!

    I know it disappeared because of the power of all that prayer.
    If you're in pain and taking meds that for sure will take you away from your true self.

    Take it easy, bud. Get home soon and let us know how you are.

    Two Special Uses of the Medal

    By a rescript of the Sacred Congregation of Religious (4 May 1965) lay Oblates of St. Benedict are permitted to wear the Medal of St. Benedict instead of the small black cloth scapular formerly worn.

    By a decree of the Sacred Congregation of Rites (6 March 1959), the Blessing of St. Maur over the sick is permitted to be given with a Medal of St. Benedict instead of with a relic of the True Cross, since the latter is difficult to obtain.


    Above the cross is the word pax (peace), that has been a Benedictine motto for centuries. Around the margin of the back of the medal, the letters V R S N S M V - S M Q L I V B are the initial letters, as mentioned above, of a Latin prayer of exorcism against Satan: Vade retro Satana! Nunquam suade mihi vana! Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas! (Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities! What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself!)

    Use of the Medal

    There is no special way prescribed for carrying or wearing the Medal of St. Benedict. It can be worn on a chain around the neck, attached to one's rosary, kept in one's pocket or purse, or placed in one's car or home. The medal is often put into the foundations of houses and building, on the walls of barns and sheds, or in one's place of business.

    The purpose of using the medal in any of the above ways is to call down God's blessing and protection upon us, wherever we are, and upon our homes and possessions, especially through the intercession of St. Benedict. By the conscious and devout use of the medal, it becomes, as it were, a constant silent prayer and reminder to us of our dignity as followers of Christ.

    The medal is a prayer of exorcism against Satan, a prayer for strength in time of temptation, a prayer for peace among ourselves and among the nations of the world, a prayer that the Cross of Christ be our light and guide, a prayer of firm rejection of all that is evil, a prayer of petition that we may with Christian courage "walk in God's ways, with the Gospel as our guide," as St. Benedict urges us.

    A profitable spiritual experience can be ours if we but take the time to study the array of inscriptions and representations found on the two sides of the medal. The lessons found there can be pondered over and over to bring true peace of mind and heart into our lives as we struggle to overcome the weaknesses of our human nature and realize that our human condition is not perfect, but that with the help of God and the intercession of the saints our condition can become better.

    The Medal of St. Benedict can serve as a constant reminder of the need for us to take up our cross daily and "follow the true King, Christ our Lord," and thus learn "to share in his heavenly kingdom," as St. Benedict urges us in the Prolog of his Rule.

    Order of St. Benedict Medal

    Benedictines for Peace will be thinking of you especially Saturday
