"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

At the sound of the Angelus bell at noon on August 1, one may gain the Portiuncula Indulgence...



Under these conditions:

The Portiuncula Indulgence, granted for August 2, can be obtained by any member of the faithful (not just a Franciscan) who visits any parish church (not necessarily a Franciscan Church), a cathedral, or a co-cathedral from noon on August 1 to midnight of August 2 and who satisfies the 3 regular conditions of sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion, and a prayer for the pope’s intentions within several days preceding or following the particular date, and performing the prescribed work attached to the devout visit to that church, i.e., praying the Lord’s Prayer and Creed. - Source

If you are worried that may not be correct, that the rules have changed - then make your visit tomorrow - August 2 midnight to midnight.

If you are concerned you are not free from all attachment to sin, even to venial sin, make an Act of Hope and leave it to Our Lord and Our Lady to decide.  Tell them you want to be free from all attachment to sin.

Trust.
Believe in love.
Believe in mercy.


Pray for us O Holy Father St. Francis!

Pray for me to obtain pardon.
Pray for me for the grace of repentance,
conversion,
compunction.
Pray for me to obtain pardon.
Pray for me to do penance.
Pray for us O Holy Father St. Francis,
that we may be worthy of the
promises of Christ,
and through the intercession of 
the Blessed Virgin Mary
obtain the Great Pardon of Assisi
and the Jubilee Indulgence.

In thanksgiving for favors granted:
Glory be to the Father
and to the Son 
and to the Holy Spirit
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.  Amen.

  1. Alternately: A plenary indulgence will be granted to one walks through doors assigned as "mercy doors" at a cathedral during this Year of Mercy, says several prayers for the intentions of the Holy Father, attends Mass, receives the Eucharist, and, at some proximate time, goes to confession. We have until the end of the Year of Mercy. Because I go to a cathedral frequently, I try to keep this in mind--and enter through the front doors instead of taking the lazy route from the parking lot.
