Holy Face Protection Cross

 

The Arch-confraternity, having its center in the archiepiscopal city of Tours where it had its origin, adopts as a principal sign of decoration for its members a cross with two arms arranged in the manner shown in the engraving given above; on the center of one of its sides is inscribed the monogram of Christ surrounded with the words: Pius IX. 1847, and upon the arms of the cross: Sit Nomen Domini Benedictum; on the obverse is seen engraved, on the center, the Holy Face, above which is the inscription of the Cross : INRI, and beneath : Vade Retro, Satana.
The associates are advised habitually to wear this cross as a safeguard; during pilgrimages and at public ceremonies, it is well to have it placed where it can be seen on the breast.
