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Second, the indulgences in the old enchiridion for the Heroic Act etc - are these surely and absolutely rescinded now?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

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 His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, that they may re-unite their flocks with the Catholic Church, and there may soon be but One Fold and One Shepherd. 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." Please pray this daily and you and your family will be saved. You will avoid Purgatory.

Daily Morning Offering: O my God, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary,  I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Jesus from all the Altars  throughout the world, joining with It the offering of my every thought, word, and action of this day. I desire to gain every Indulgence and Merit I can, offering them, together with myself, to Mary Immaculate, Whom Thou hast appointed the dispenser of the merits of Thy Precious Blood, especially by means of this Scapular  [Here kiss your Brown Scapular] that She may best apply them to the interests of Thy Most Sacred Heart. Amen.

Consecration to Our Blessed Mother: My Queen, my Mother! I give myself entirely to Thee, and to show my devotion to Thee I consecrate to Thee this day, my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being without reserve, Wherefore, good Mother, as I am Thine own, keep me, guard me, as Thy property and possession."
