The meanings behind the medal: Saint Michael
Saint Michael the Archangel is referenced in the Old Testament and has been part of Christian teachings since the earliest times.
The Prayer to Saint Michael reads:
"Saint Michael the archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into Hell Satan, and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Another prayer to St. Michael for protection is found in the Carmina Gadelica, collected by Alexander Carmichael in the Gaelic-speaking regions of Scotland.

A St. Michael Pendent symbolizes protection for military, police officers, soldiers, doctors and all of humanity. St. Michael was the first to fight the devil.
