Having a Crucifix in our homes and frequently kissing and venerating it is one of the most profitable and consoling spiritual exercises. Jesus Himself has often approved of this devotion and given it the blessing of many indulgences and promises. And, astonishing us with His immeasurable Love, He has said to St. Gertrude, that He loves each and every one of us so much that, His Heart still burns so much with Love for us that, if it were beneficial or necessary, He would be ready to endure for each of us alone, just for you and for me, what He endured and suffered for the whole world. How much should we not love Him in return, and how grateful should we be for such undeserved Love!

"Here is what Our Lord revealed to St. Gertrude the Great about praying with a crucifix ...

“It is very agreeable to Me to see thee thus honoring the Crucifix. It is always an effect of Divine grace when men’s eyes meet the Image on the Cross, and never once do they rest upon It, but their soul is benefited. The oftener they do this here on earth with reverence and love, the greater will be their reward in heaven.”

And in another place He tells her:

“Every time one kisses the Crucifix, or looks at it with devotion, the eye of God’s mercy is fixed upon his soul. He should then listen within himself to these words of tenderness from Me: ‘Behold how I, for love of thee, hang on the Cross—naked, despised, My while Body wounded, all My limbs distended. And still My Heart is enkindled with such glowing love for thee that if it were beneficial for thy salvation and thou couldst not be saved in any other way, I would for thee alone endure all that I suffered for the whole world!’”

Wow. Let that sink in for a few minutes. And then be sure to keep a crucifix in your home, where you work, hanging on a rosary from your rear view mirror, and any other place that allows you to reflect on the Divine Love of Christ and this amazing truth . . . “I would for thee alone endure all that I suffered for the whole world!”
.Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted and pluralized: Dear Lord Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, We hereby Offer our whole Lives to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with our life, we place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all our Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all our good deeds, all our sacrifices, and the suffering of our entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis the First; and for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. For His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, that they may re-unite their flocks with the Catholic Church, and there may soon be but One Fold and One Shepherd. For all the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for Priests, Nuns and Monks, for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, and for All Souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept our life Sacrifice and our offerings and give us Your grace that we may all persevere obediently until death. Amen." https://marianapostolate.com/life-offering/ Please pray this daily and you and your family will be saved. You will avoid Purgatory.

Some other promises Our Lord made in this connection, from Flavio Raposo's Pilgrim's Guide to Paradise.

1. Those who expose a Crucifix in their homes or place of work and decorate it with flowers will reap many blessings and rich fruit in their work and undertakings, and immediate help and comfort in their cares and suffering.

2. Those who look at a Crucifix only a few minutes when they are tempted or in battle or struggling, especially when tempted to anger, will at once master themselves, the temptation and sin.

3. Those who daily meditate for fifteen minutes on My Agony on the Cross will at once support their suffering and annoyances, first with patience, then later with joy.

4. Those who very often meditate on My Wounds on the Cross with deep sorrow for their sins and guilt, will soon attain a deep hatred of sin.

5. Those who very often, at least twice daily, offer up to the Heavenly Father My Three Hour Agony on the Cross for all neglects, indifferences and failures to follow inspirations will shorten or be completely spared of the punishments for them.

6. Those who gladly pray the Rosary of the Holy Wounds with devotion and great trust, while meditating on My Agony on the Cross, will obtain the grace to fulfill well all their duties, and by their example, will inspire others to do so.

7. Those who inspire others to honour the Crucifix and My Most Precious Blood and Wounds and who also make known My Rosary of the Holy Wounds will obtain quick answers to all their prayers

8. Those who pray the Way of the Cross daily over a long period of time and offer it for the conversion of sinners, can save a whole parish.

9. Those who three consecutive times - it need not be in one day - visit an image of My Crucifix, honour it and offer to the Heavenly Father, My Agony and Death, My Most Precious Blood and My Wounds for their sins will have a beautiful death, will die without agony or fear.

10. Those who every Friday at 3 P.M. meditate on My Passion and Death for fifteen minutes, offering them up with My Most Precious Blood and My Wounds, for themselves and for the dying of the week, will achieve a high degree of love and perfection, and can be certain that the devil won't be able to do further spiritual or bodily harm to them.
