What does St. Benedict’s medal mean?

From Catholic Link

The Saint Benedict Medal can be blessed by any priest not necessarily a Benedictine.
The following prayers are to be said:

The medal is then sprinkled with holy water.

It is effective in many ways:
  • to destroy witchcraft and all other diabolical and haunting influences;
  • to impart protection to persons tempted, deluded, or tormented by evil spirits;
  • to obtain the conversion of sinners to the Catholic Church, especially when they are in danger of death;
  • to serve as an armor against temptation;
  • to destroy the effects of poison;
  • to secure a timely and healthy birth for children;
  • to afford protection against storms and lightning;
  • to serve as an efficacious remedy for bodily afflictions and a means of protection against contagious diseases.
