St. Benedict Sick Call Crucifix with Silver Medal and Corpus
This walnut sick call crucifix with St. Benedict medal 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.
