Through this prayer every day I bring before God’s throne your loved ones, and your intentions and needs.
• Whenever possible I will be offering two Masses daily. One for your intentions and one for the end of the pandemic. Every morning pray “Eternal Father, I unite myself with Fr. Guillermo and all the members of our parish in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that he will be offering today. I offer you this Mass particularly for (state your intention here), through Christ our Lord.”

NEW PLENARY INDULGENCE

The Apostolic Penitentiary has decreed norms granting Plenary Indulgence to various categories of faithful caught up in the current ongoing situation of the coronavirus pandemic. The Decree was made public today.

The specific norms are the following:

The Plenary Indulgence is granted to the faithful affected by Coronavirus, subjected to quarantine by order of the health authority in hospitals or in their own homes if, with their souls detached from any sin, they will spiritually join the celebration through the media of the Holy Mass, the recitation of the Holy Rosary, the pious practice of the Via Crucis, or other forms of devotion, or if at least they will recite the Creed, the Our Father and a pious invocation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, offering this proof in a spirit of faith in God and charity towards our brothers and sisters, with the will to fulfill the usual conditions (sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion and prayer according to the intentions of the Holy Father), as soon as it is possible for them.

Health workers, family members, and those who, following the example of the Good Samaritan, exposing themselves to the risk of contagion, assist Coronavirus patients according to the words of the divine Redeemer: «Nobody has a love greater than this: giving life for their own friends »(Jn 15:13), will obtain the same gift of the plenary Indulgence on the same conditions.

Furthermore, this Apostolic Penitentiary willingly grants Plenary Indulgence under the same conditions on the occasion of the current world epidemic, also to those faithful who offer a visit to the Blessed Sacrament, or Eucharistic adoration, or the reading of the Holy Scriptures for at least half now, either the recitation of the Holy Rosary, or the pious exercise of the Via Crucis, or the recitation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, to implore from Almighty God the cessation of the epidemic, relief for those who are afflicted and eternal salvation of how many the Lord has called to himself.
