Pardon Crucifix

Pope St. Pius X granted these indulgences: 

Whoever carries on his person the Pardon Crucifix, may thereby gain an indulgence. For devoutly kissing the Crucifix, an indulgence is gained. 
hoever 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." 

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 Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 

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. 

On the back of the Crucifix, on the transverse arms, are the words, "Father, forgive them." On the long part of the Cross are the words, "Behold this heart which has so loved men." The Sacred Heart is shown where the two arms of the Cross meet. 

The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation ​

1422 "Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion."

What is the Sacrament Called?

1423 It is called the sacrament of conversion because it makes sacramentally present Jesus' call to conversion, the first step in returning to the Father from whom one has strayed by sin. 
It is called the sacrament of Penance, since it consecrates the Christian sinner's personal and ecclesial steps of conversion, penance, and satisfaction. 

1424 It is called the sacrament of confession, since the disclosure or confession of sins to a priest is an essential element of this sacrament. In a profound sense it is also a "confession" - acknowledgment and praise - of the holiness of God and of his mercy toward sinful man. 
It is called the sacrament of forgiveness, since by the priest's sacramental absolution God grants the penitent "pardon and peace."
It is called the sacrament of Reconciliation, because it imparts to the sinner the live of God who reconciles: "Be reconciled to God."7 He who lives by God's merciful love is ready to respond to the Lord's call: "Go; first be reconciled to your brother."

Prayer To Our Lady Before Confession

“Mary, Mother of Jesus and my Mother, your Son died on a cross for me. Help me to confess my sins humbly and with trust in the mercy of God, that I may receive His pardon and peace.”

Although Lent is a time for self examination and repentance, we should not limit self-reflection to these forty days.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is always available to us. Remorse brings us to confession and absolution  which  ultimately  brings us to healing and gratitude for God‘s mercy.  The cleansing we are given through this Sacrament is a most precious gift. We begin anew in a state of grace.  In gratefulness for this Sacrament, we have created these rosaries which we call Ashes to Ashes.

In both rosaries, we have chosen colors which symbolize ashes to remind us of the seriousness of an honest examination of conscience. 

My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. 
Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes."
   Job42: 5-6

"A soul does not benefit from the sacrament of confession if it is not humble. Pride keeps it in darkness. The soul neither knows how, nor is it willing, to probe with precision the depths of its own misery. It puts on a mask and avoids everything that might bring it recovery."
~ Saint Faustina ~
