THE CRUCIFIX MEDAL OF ST.BENEDICT
Among the numerous mediums holy Mother Church offers to bring help to the dying.She certifies the Cross of the happy death and the Medal of St. Benedict. The Popes have granted a Plenary Indulgence to this combination. To facilitate the gaining of this Indulgence,we have the placement of a Happy Death supporting the Medal of St.Benedict which is placed in the center on the back of the cross. One of the inscriptions on the Medal brings this wish in prayer form to mind:(Ejus in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur) "We desire you in our hour of death to be our armour by your property and presence.
