Here is the meaning and purpose of the medal.

*The Cross signifies Christ's victory over sin and death through His crucifixion.

*The vertical arm of the cross bears the initials "C.S.S.M.L.," which stands for "Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux" ("May the Holy Cross be my light").

*The horizontal arm of the cross displays the initials "N.D.S.M.D.," which stand for "Non Draco Sit Mihi Dux", or, "Let not the dragon be my guide." This is a rejection of evil.

*The larger letters surrounding the center cross, “C S P B”, stand for: Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti, which means, "The Cross of [our] Holy Father Benedict."

*At the top of the medal is the word, "PAX" which means “peace.”

*Surrounding the back of the medal are the letters, V R S N S M V - S M Q L I V B. This symbolizes a Latin prayer for protection: "Vade Retro Satana! Nunquam Suade Mihi Vana!". It translates to: "Begone, Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities!"
