Two particular indulgences....
« on: December 20, 2020, 03:39:53 PM »
Anyone with the Angelus Press 1962 could go to page 96 to see the relevant prayers.

Question the first: The Prayer Before a Crucifix.  Does the recitation indeed carry a plenary indulgence (under the usual conditions of course)?  I have looked in other sources and cannot find a definitive answer, however, I seem to have recalled reading as such in the Baltimore Catechism, but cannot find the reference.

Question the second: Pope St. Pius X's "Act of Resignation to the Divine Will."  A plenary indulgence is attached to this prayer at the hour of death after confession and Communion.  Are these the usual plenary indulgence conditions, or is it as the text states, directly after confession and Communion.  It seems a bit vague.

Thank you! :cheeseheadbeer:

'A plenary indulgence is attached to the recitation of this prayers before a figure of Christ crucified, subject to confession, communion and prayers for the intention of the Sovereign Pontiff (Clement VIII, Benedict XIV, Pius VII, Pius IX, Leo XIII and Pius XI). Since 1933, one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be is sufficient,' according to the St Andrew's Missal, 1940. This still appears to hold, with other prayers having reduced indulgences, while from the same source 'by a special act of Pius X, on the 9th March 1904 a plenary indulgence was attached 'in articulo mortis' to the following prayer even when recited in full health long before death, after confession and communion' for the Act of Resignation.
