St. Benedict's Medal

I read and heard a lot about the evil warding powers of the St. Benedict's medal so I spent more time yesterday scouring the internet for more info, specially where one can buy this medal from here in Manila, Philippines. I am positive there must be a local source and not everything has to be imported from abroad.


I have been wanting to buy one but most of those offering it online are European or US stores. Those I saw being sold on the streets are plastic-looking imitations that cost too much, yet were not blessed by any Benedictine priest. Luckily, I found a blog where I read that it is sold at a church in Mendiola, particularly at the Abbey of Our Lady of Montserrat, also called Benedictine Abbey. Read more of the church hopping experience of Ferdz Decena at IronWulf.nethttp://www.ironwulf.net/2008/01/07/church-hopping-around-san-miguel/ for more pictures and details.

It would be a good experience to attend a mass at the St. Benedict's church. And yes, this is going to be one of the items in my bucket list for 2012. So after more reading, I found on this blog a detailed address and schedules of the San Beda College Benedictine Abbey Church  masses.

639 Mendiola Street
1005 San Miguel, Manila
MASSES

Baptism, confession and blessing of St. Benedict Medals may be arranged at the adjacent office.

I asked my colleagues if they know any Bedistas and fortunately enough, one of my teammates is actually a San Beda College Alabang graduate. And he told he'll get me some of those medals when he goes there after Christmas. Thanks Elton! :)

  3. You can actually buy these pendants at any St. Paul Store, ranging from Php5 to Php30. I bought mine at the Gateway branch. They also have branches in select SM malls.
