Walnut Sick Call Crucifix with Painted Resin Corpus
This wooden sick call crucifix is 13" long and comes with two candles and a glass vial for holy water. These items store handily in the base of the crucifix. Before Vatican II, these were very popular wedding gifts. When a priest was coming to administer Holy Communion or Extreme Unction to the sick or dying, a small altar was set up near the bedside to receive the Blessed Sacrament with due reverence and respect.
