HOLY MASS CRUCIFIX FOR MARRIAGE
This devotional crucifix combines The Holy Mass Crucifix with the interlocking rings at the bottom that symbolize the Sacrament of Marriage. It is made of gold-finished pewter with an enamel inlay.
Measures 8" and includes a hook for hanging.
The Holy Mass Crucifix is the sacramental at the heart of an exciting Apostolate dedicated to the propagation of the Holy Mass, the Priesthood, and the Christian life, as well as co-redemptive suffering and co-intercession in the Mystical Body of Christ. This crucifix is meant to remind those who look upon it of Christ's Sacrifice on the Cross, His Passion, Death and Resurrection, which is made present at each and every Holy Sacrifice of the 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 resurrection which have redeemed 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”.
