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Second, the indulgences in the old enchiridion for the Heroic Act etc - are these surely and absolutely rescinded now?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?

To understand God's Plan for Humanity, and how He has provided the means by which we can minimize the Coming Great Tribulation, read:

Offer your Life to Jesus and Mary: TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted: 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 His Eminence Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, His Excellency Metropolitan Hilarion, as well as His Eminence Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, that they may re-unite their flocks with the Roman Catholic Church, and there may soon be but One Fold and One Shepherd. For all the 220+ Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all 6000+ Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for the 400,000+ Priests, the 700,000+ Nuns, 50,000+ Monks, 100,000+ seminarians, that they may all become the Saints the Divine Will wishes them to be; for all the 1.35 Billion Members of the Church, the Millions of Catholic Catechumens and Children to be born and baptized in this Decade; we pray for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, for All Lay Apostolates, and 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."

"Mother of God, Co-Redemptrix of the world, pray for us" [Promise: 1000 Souls from Purgatory]"This short prayer, this insistent prayer, every time it is said, sets free from Purgatory 1000 Souls, who reach the Eternal Joy, the Eternal Light"(!).
