big important text encryption with MD5 or something else?by Alex the Serb (Monk)

Alex the Serb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
i have great problem. How could I use Perl module MD5 to encrypt some big text files and than store them in database for later retrival. The most important thing is, how could I decrypt it and display on screen for reading?
These are some very important documents. I already read a lot of stuff here that explain how to crypt using MD5 and compare to see if it was altered or not, but that is not the point! Is there any way to decrypt it using secret that was used to crypt it? Like that someone who stored document using his secret will be able to read it using the same secret.
These documents are stored in database without encryption and anyone with access to server could read it!
