Special adjustments for November 2020 All Souls Plenary Indulgences
With the power of the keys to loose the kingdom of heaven upon earth, Holy Mother Church grants a plenary indulgence, that is the complete remission of all temporal punishment due to sin, all this week (Nov. 1-8), by the particular work of visiting a cemetery and praying for the faithful departed. This particular plenary indulgence is only applicable to the poor souls (not to one self).
This year, 2020, due to restrictions in churches throughout the world, the Sacred Penitentiary of the Vatican has decreed that the 8 indulgences can be gained throughout the whole month of November. Only 8 in total may be gained, but the 8 opportunities are now extended through all of November and not limited to just the Nov 1-8 period. Read more here.
One may also gain a plenary indulgence on Nov 2, by visiting a Church and reciting an Our Father and Creed.
All are invited to visit Palm Royale Cemetery on Vanderbilt Beach Rd. before or after our daily evening Masses throughout the month. Read more about this special opportunity and the accompanying conditions. Besides the Rosary, Chaplet, etc. other indulgenced prayers for the fatihful departed may be found in the Church's Raccolta (c.f. pg. 160 et seq)
