All Souls Day!

All Souls’ Day Indulgence – 2 November Plenary Indulgence
Posted on 2 November 2010 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
From the Handbook of Indulgences
Visiting a Church or an Oratory on All Souls Day

A plenary (“full”) indulgence, which is applicable only to the souls in Purgatory is granted to the Christian faithful who devoutly visit a church or an oratory on (November 2nd,) All Souls Day.

Will you not, for love, try today to gain this indulgence?

Requirements for Obtaining a Plenary Indulgence on All Souls Day (Nov. 2nd)

■Visit a church and pray for souls in Purgatory
■Say one “Our Father” and the “Creed” in the visit to the church
■Say one “Our Father” and one “Hail Mary” for the Holy Father’s intentions
■Worthily receive Holy Communion (ideally on the same day if you can get to Mass)
■Make a sacramental confession within a week of All Souls Day
■For a plenary indulgence be free from all attachment to sin, even venial sin (otherwise, the indulgence is partial, not plenary, “full”).
