Deodorant mistakenly sprayed over St Benedict's medal


I sprayed deodorant over my St. Benedict’s medal by mistake, now my deodorant has alcohol in it. So, does this mean my medal has lost it’s blessing and powers due to the alcohol which was in my deodorant? I was recently exorcised off evil and I wear it as protection and remembrance of faith, so I can be really vulnerable about this. So will it still work or has it lost it’s powers and blessings?


Why did you start an new identical thread?


Just wash it off. Things like that happen. Things don’t get “unblessed”.


The blessing of your medal is not magical, able to be blocked by certain actions. Nor is it a physical substance that can be covered up or wiped off.

Maybe speak with a priest to understand what a blessing means and doesn’t mean?


Flagged as duplicate thread. We’re not supposed to start multiple threads on the same topic.
