Receive a Plenary Indulgence
By a special grant from the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See for those who pray for the end of the pandemic, a plenary indulgence is available for those who join Archbishop Gomez in praying the Litany of the Sacred Heart on Good Friday. A plenary Indulgence removes all of the temporal punishment due to sins and may be applied to oneself or to the souls of the deceased [Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1471].
To receive this indulgence, a member of the faithful would need to:
-pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart on Good Friday
–be truly repentant of any sins they have committed and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (at the earliest opportunity)
-pray for the Holy Father’s intentions.
