Portiuncular Indulgence

Saint Francis obtained for us the Plenary Indulgence of the Forgiveness of Assisi or the Portiuncular Indulgence, as it is also called. The date of the Portiuncular Indulgence is from vespers on the first of August until sundown on the second of August, which is the Feast of Our Lady of the Angels. Some say that Saint Francis was given the date by Our Lord because the Feast of the Chains of St. Peter, which is celebrated on August 1st, is the day Peter was released from prison and his chains were removed. The Portiuncular Indulgence removes the chains of sin from those who devoutly and faithfully seek to gain the indulgence by completing its requirements.

The conditions to obtain the Indulgence are:

  • Sacramental Confession to be in God’s grace (during eight days before or after)
  • Participation in the Holy Mass and Eucharist

  • Recitation of The Apostles Creed, Our Father and a prayer for the Pope’s Intention.

The Portiuncula Indulgence is a grace not to miss, for yourself and for the souls in purgatory. Mark your calendar. For more information, click here.
