5. To destroy the effects of poison;
6. To secure a timely and healthy birth for children;
7. To afford protection against storms and lightning;
8. To serve as an efficacious remedy for bodily afflictions and a means of protection against contagious diseases.

1. On a chain around the neck;
2. Attached to one’s rosary;

The use of any religious article is intended as a means of reminding one of God and of inspiring a willingness and desire to serve God and neighbor. It is not regarded as a good luck charm or magical device.1

  1. I’ve worn one for over 20 years now. They also must be blessed by a Dominican who uses a minor rite of exorcism which also requires the use of blessed holy water. Another priest may do this but only if he gains permission from a Dominican and follows the instructions precisely.

      1. He could but he would need permission and the rite sent to him. My old pastor did this for me and got permission from the abbot at Belmont Abbey. So I am sure that my medal carries with it all the promises of that are made for this sacramental. Any Benedictine monasteries near you? You might think of taking a trip someday and having your medal properly blessed.
