Prayer of Saint Benedict for Exorcism
A Haunting Melody by Alice B. Clagett
6 February 2018
Here are the words:
“Crux sacra sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux
“Vade retro satana / Numquam suade mihi vana
“Sunt mala quae libas / Ipse venena bibas”
The Wikipedia translation is like this …
“Let the Holy Cross be my light / Let not the dragon be my guide
“Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things
“What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself.”
