There are three Benediction challenges found in the dungeon. Completing them will heal and revive all the characters in the party, among other things. The Benedictions are all skippable, none of them are mandatory to complete the dungeon. 

There are healing buffs found in the hallways and rooms in the dungeon. They will heal the active character for a certain amount of HP. There are also movement speed buffs to make it faster to traverse the dungeon. Please note that food is not allowed inside the dungeon, so completing the Benedictions and picking up the healing buffs would be advisable. 

Completing the final challenge

Once all three Ancient Runes have been activated, the Control Array in the main room will activate, revealing an elevator. Ride the elevator to move to the room above and find the final challenge in that room.
