Saint Benedict of Nurcia

Died on the 21 March 547.



Crux sancta sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux
Vade retro satana / Numquam suade mihi vana
Sunt mala quae libas / Ipse venena bibas

Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things
What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself."
