In light of the current pandemic, on October 22, 2020, the Apostolic Penitentiary issued a decree extending the time for the traditional plenary indulgences for the Faithful Departed, which are only applicable to the souls in purgatory. The plenary indulgence granted to those who visit a cemetery and pray for the deceased during the days of November 1-8 can now be transferred to other days during the month of November chosen by the individual. These days do not have to be consecutive.
The plenary indulgence of All Souls Day, November 2, whereby a member of the faithful devoutly visits a church or oratory and recites the Our Father and Creed, may be transferred to any day during the Month of November that is chosen by the individual.
The elderly, sick, and those who for a serious reason cannot leave their home to go to a cemetery, church, or oratory can obtain the plenary indulgence by spiritually uniting themselves with the faithful and before an image of Jesus or the Blessed Virgin Mary, either praying devoutly pious prayers for the deceased (e.g. Marian Rosary, Office of the Dead, Divine Mercy Chaplet, etc.), reading and reflecting on one of the Gospels passages prescribed for Masses of the Dead, or by performing a work of mercy by offering to God the sorrow and hardships of their own lives.
The usual requirements of detachment from sin, having the intention to earn the indulgence, and the three conditions o
(1) prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father
(2) reception of Holy Communion and
(3) making a Sacramental Confession
still apply, but if it is difficult for the faithful to fulfill the three conditions within the usual timeframe of twenty days before or after the indulgenced act, they may be fulfilled as soon as possible.
Peace of Christ,
