Tomorrow, Sunday August 2, the Portiuncula Plenary Indulgence may be granted to those who participate in the prayers and conditions described at this website:
In a nutshell,
1. Sacramental Confession to be in God’s grace (during eight days before or after.)
2. Participation in the Holy Mass and Eucharist
3. Recitation of The Apostles Creed, Our Father and a prayer for the Pope’s Intention.
An indulgence is a remission of the temporal punishment due to sin, the guilt of which has been forgiven.
Partial and Plenary Indulgences that have been established by various popes remain valid today even though not frequently mentioned or discussed. But they are treasures available to any Catholic who reaches out to take them.
This is but another spiritual treasure of the Catholic Church... "Whatever you bind on earth, will be bound in heaven, whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Matt 16:19
