are near the hand of Our Lord for two reasons:
- Our Lord said wheat must die to itself to become bread, and grapes must undergo the press to become wine. This speaks of the Passion Christ suffered to redeem us, and the Christian life where we die to self for others.

– The Holy Mass Crucifix is the only Crucifix in the Church to receive an Apostolic Blessing for a Crucifix Apostolate. The Holy Mass Crucifix is also blessed by the only 2 living men who have held the Papacy. This is unrepeatable. The St. Benedict Medal
, with all of its indulgences, is retained on the back of every Holy Mass Crucifix and Pendant.

come together in the Holy Mass Crucifix-- Pope Benedict XVI (Crucifix and Apostolate), Pope Francis (Crucifix), and Pope Benedict XIV (St. Benedict Medal) once blessed by a priest.
