The work is painstaking, even the smallest detail counts. Some of their other work includes the pastoral staff Benedict XVI used, the same one he approved. Also, this gold-plated Bible cover given to him as a gift for his 60 years as a priest.

"We see our pieces on TV, but also we see it again when the Holy Father drops them, and we have to readjust them, so we see it for this reason too.”

Their hands have worked on times from this relic for John Paul II to papal gifts for Marian shrines. Now, they're hoping they will have the chance to continue using their hands to work for the next Pope.
