Plenary Indulgence Available – March for Life

By special grant of our Holy Father, Pope Francis, Cardinal Mauro Piacenza, the Major Penitentiary of the Catholic Church, has informed the Bishops of the United States that a Plenary Indulgence can be obtained by the Christian faithful by taking part in the sacred celebrations of the 2018 March for Life (18-19 January 2018).

Those that are unable to attend or participate in the March for Life due to age, sickness, or other grave reason, may also obtain the Plenary Indulgence, provided that they have the disposition of detachment from any kind of sin and have the intention of fulfilling, as soon as they are able, the three cus- tomary conditions of the Indulgence if they spiritually unite themselves to the sacred events of the March for Life, and also having offered prayers and their sufferings or the ail- ments of their own life to the merciful God.”

The three customary conditions for receiving the Plenary

Indulgence include: sacramental Confession, Eucharistic Communion, and prayers for the intentions of Pope Francis.
