Pardon Crucifix Size: 5.2 cm x 3.6 cm Made entirely of silver metal and supplied with an opening ring. Made in Italy
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.
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!)
Whoever carries on his person the Pardon Crucifix, may thereby gain an indulgence.
For devoutly kissing the Crucifix, an indulgence is gained.
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.”
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.
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. The Pardon Crucifix is a very powerful "weapon" which the devil must truly hate.
What are sacramentals ?
Sacramentals are powerful and blessed objects that can be a means to express your faith in God and they are instruments of grace that God uses to draw us closer to Him and to work through our lives to protect and sanctify us. Sacramentals come in different forms like rosaries, medals, pictures, statues of saints, scapulars ,crucifixes, incense, salt, water, oil etc. Many saints have spoken on their thoughts on the strength of sacramentals. Such as St. Teresa: “From long experience I have learned that there is nothing like holy water to put devils to flight and prevent them from coming back again. They also flee from the Cross, but return, so holy water must have great virtue."
When a Sacramental is blessed they have the power to bring down God's graces upon the user, they protect one from diabolical attacks of satan and the evil spirits by driving them away, they have the power to bring a soul to conversion and lead them to the sacraments, they can bring spiritual and physical healing to a soul, they can remove venial sins, give you the grace to fight temptations, deliver you from many dangers and much more.
Where do sacramentals get their power from?
"For well-disposed members of the faithful, the liturgy of the sacraments and sacramentals sanctifies almost every event of their lives with the divine grace which flows from the Paschal mystery of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Christ. From this source all sacraments and sacramentals draw their power."
We must continue to have recourse to the abundant graces granted through such powerful sacramentals as the Holy Rosary, the Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, the Miraculous Medal, the Saint Benedict Medal and so many others that have found favor with God. In these dawning years of the 21st century, in days of increasing compromise and capitulation that come from embracing the world, we must protect our authentic catholic patrimony. A significant and invaluable part of that patrimony is found in catholic sacramentals and since they are blessed objects they should be treated with reverence.
So use them to sanctify and protect your life, those of your family and friends, your loved ones and help lead souls to the kingdom of heaven.

We do not get the sacramentals blessed so you will have to get them blessed.
