So folks, which Indulgences in the new Enchiridion are your favorites? Which do you think can be easily or frequently obtained by all?

We have two lists here: (All Indulgences) (Plenary Indulgences only)

I think the two for (1) Reading Scripture reverently for at least half an hour and (2) Reciting the holy Rosary can be obtained by anyone, anywhere on any day. Thus they are very useful to us. The ones on (3) Eucharistic Adoration for at least half an hour or (4) Way of the Cross can be gained in most churches/chapels if we can visit them. It's again said that reading on the Passion of the Christ can substitute as far as the latter indulgence is concerned. Same 30 minutes.

Also, I have a question - one can gain only one indulgence for oneself per day, true, but can one gain more than one for the holy souls? Also, if by meditating on Scripture for half an hour, we gain one plenary indulgence, does that mean we can obtain 2 for 1 hour etc?

Second, the indulgences in the old enchiridion for the Heroic Act etc - are these surely and absolutely rescinded now? Can we at least believe that similar effects may be granted to them, if not by the Authority of the Church, then simply by the Mercy of God?

What else? Which ones are your favorites?

Please listen to the frequent messages and take heed of the directions given from Our Living Lord and Our Loving Lady from around the world here: Great things are at stake. Please consecrate your life to the Blessed Mother so that the Kingdom of God may come, "Ad Sanctam Trinitatem per Mariam, Ut adveniat Regnum Deum, adveniat Regnum Mariae, ergo TOTUS TUUS ego sum, MARIA" See

Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted and pluralized: Dear Lord Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, We hereby Offer our whole Lives to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with our life, we place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all our Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all our good deeds, all our sacrifices, and the suffering of our entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis the First; and for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. For all the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for Priests, Nuns and Monks, for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, and for All Souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept our life Sacrifice and our offerings and give us Your grace that we may all persevere obediently until death. Amen." It is recommended that you make this Life Offering as soon as you feel ready, and to renew it from time to time.

Please read the Blessed Mother's amazing promises in the link: A simple effective way for thousands of us to save millions of souls. The Doctors and Apostles say if we save even just one other soul through prayer and sacrifice, we also ensure the salvation of our own! Let us Offer our Lives in Sacrifice to Jesus and Mary Today, to save, if it were possible, all souls everywhere.
