Sisters and Brothers in Christ, the Holy Father is offering the gift of a plenary indulgence to Catholics who celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe at home. The plenary indulgence will be granted on December 11th and 12th.
To receive an indulgence, a remission of the temporal punishment of one's sins, the following conditions must be met. A person must:
· Prepare an altar or place of prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe at home.
· Participate in a live streamed or televised Mass at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City “actively participating in the Holy Eucharist as you would in person, that is, with devotion and with exclusive attention to the Eucharist.” You can watch the Mass via https://www.youtube.com/user/BasilicadeGuadalupe
· Comply with the usual conditions to benefit from indulgences by praying for the intentions of the Holy Father, being in a state of grace after confession, attending a full Mass, and receiving Communion. The last three conditions can be fulfilled when public health guidance allow.
