   This cross was declared an indulgence by Pope St. Pius X in 1905 and was approved in the pardon of the living and the souls in Purgatory in 1907.

   The word indulgence originally meant kindness or favor. In Latin it meant the remission of a tax or debt. Under Roman law it was used to express release from captivity or punishment. In this instance an indulgence is given to remit the temporal punishment of sin that has been forgiven.
