In the US military, those wounded in battle are awarded the Purple Heart. It is an award no one wants to receive but for those who do it is a badge of honor and sign of one's willingness to defend, even to the point of injury or death.
It is in the same spirit that the Catholic Cross Bearers M/M awards to its members the Purple Cross Rider Award. Those members who are injured on their motorcycle while wearing CCBMM colors and serving the ministry will be awarded the Purple Cross Rider. A badge of honor and sign of dedication to the ministry.
