Description of the Pardon Crucifix

On the Front of the Pardon Crucifix, above the corpus, are the words “Jesus Nazarenus Rex Judaeorum. ”  The English translation is “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”

On the back of the cross is the Sacred Heart and two inscriptions. The first on the horizontal portion is the prayer of pardon which gives this crucifix its name, "Father, forgive them". On the vertical portion of the back are the words spoken by Jesus to St. Margaret Mary in 1675, "Behold this Heart which has so loved men".   At the foot of the cross, also on the back, is the symbol of Mary.  

Indulgences of the Pardon Crucifix

These indulgences have been declared upon the Pardon Crucifix by Pope St. Pius X in 1905, and have been approved in the pardon of the living and the souls in Purgatory in 1907. (Never forget to pray for souls in Purgatory!)

  1. Whoever carries on his person the Pardon Crucifix, may thereby gain an indulgence.
  2. For devoutly kissing the Crucifix, an indulgence is gained.
  3. Whoever says one of the following invocations before this crucifix may gain each time an indulgence: “Our Father who art in heaven, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” “I beg the Blessed Virgin Mary to pray to the Lord our God for me.”
  4. Whoever, habitually devout to this Crucifix, will fulfill the necessary conditions of Confession and Holy Communion, may gain a Plenary Indulgence on the following feasts: On the feasts of the Five Wounds of our Lord, the Invention of the Holy Cross, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the Immaculate Conception, and the Seven Sorrows (Dolors) of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
  5. Whoever, at the moment of death, fortified with the Sacraments of the Church, or contrite of heart, in the supposition of being unable to receive them, will kiss this Crucifix and ask pardon of God for his sins, and pardon his neighbor, will gain a Plenary Indulgence.

In addition, His Holiness Pope Pius X, has declared that the Indulgence attached to the Pardon Crucifix are applicable to the souls in Purgatory.

Great product, low cost.

I normally don't give reviews, but this is a really great product so I think it deserves it: I received my Pardon Crucifix Powerful Protection Pendant a couple of weeks ago and I've been wearing it 24/7 ever since. It serves as a powerful prayer aid and reminder of God's love in times of temptation.

Tim T. (Fort Mitchell, US)
Awesome Crucifix

The Pardon Crucifix is a beautiful devotion to our Lord and Savior. The crucifix is elegant and the meaning behind it is powerful. I had mine blessed by our parish priest and I wear everyday. I love the chain as well, it is long enough to fit over my head without unclasping it. I highly recommend this crucifix and if you need a rosary, the WWI rosary with the pardon crucifix is a great companion. I love Rugged Rosary products.
