Through your most holy Passion, we humbly implore that you drive away all attacks and wiles of the devil, from those who devoutly invoke your holy name, while using (this medal / these medals) imprinted with sacred words and symbols. Lead them safely to the haven of salvation, where you live and reign forever.
