Holy Mass Crucifix

The Holy Mass Crucifix is presented with the Eucharist at the heart of the crucifix.
As such, it is a catachetical crucifix which reminds us that the
reality of Calvary to all of time and place in the Holy Mass.

Once blessed by a priest, the Apostolic Blessings of Pope Benedict and Pope Francis
are imparted to these crucifixes and to all those who pray for or promote the apostolate in any way.

Speaking of the crucifix Pope Francis said:
"I would like to add a third expression which must distinguish your missionary spirit.
You have a specific and important mission, that of keeping alive the relationship between
the faith and cultures of the people to whom you belong.
You do this through popular piety.

When, for example, you carry the crucifix in procession with such great veneration and love for the Lord,
you are not performing a simple outward act; you are pointing to the centrality
of the Lord's Paschal Mystery, His passion, death, and ressurection which have redeemd us,
and you are reminding yourselves first, as well as the community, that we have to follow Christ
along the concrete path of our daily lives so then He can transform us.

Come home to the Holy Mass. Jesus waits for you.

You can order one of these crosses for $60 through District Master Jim Haiar.

Plenary Indulgence

The Norms on Indulgences from the Enchiridion of Indulgences issued on June 1968, #19 states: "The faithful, who devoutly use an article of devotion (crucifix or cross ...) that has been blessed by the Sovereign Pontiff ... the faithful, using it devoutly, can also gain a plenary indulgence on the feast of the Holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, provided they also make a profession of faith according to any legitimate formula." Once blessed these crucifixes will receive the Apostolic Blessings of 2 popes, so be certain to avail yourself of the Plenary Indulgence.
