Plenary Indulgence available today

Today is the 150th anniversary of the death of St John Vianney.  Pope Benedict XVI has designated him as a model and patron for priests during this jubilee Year for Priests.

The Plenary Indulgence is granted to all the faithful who are truly repentant who, in church or in chapel, devoutly attend the divine Sacrifice of Mass and offer prayers to Jesus Christ the Eternal High Priest, for the priests of the Church, and any other good work which they have done on that day, so that he may sanctify them and form them in accordance with His Heart, as long as they have made expiation for their sins through sacramental confession and prayed in accordance with the Supreme Pontiff’s intentions: on the days in which the Year for Priests begins and ends, on the day of the 150th anniversary of the pious passing of St John Mary Vianney, on the first Thursday of the month or on any other day established by the local Ordinaries for the benefit of the faithful.

  1. Christian Says:

    The first Thursday of THIS month?

  2. Walt Says:

    The first Thursday of every month through June 2010 (in addition to today’s feast/anniversary). Why Thursdays? Because the priesthood was instituted at the “Last Supper” which took place on a Thursday.
