Holy Year Indulgences Explained Vatican City (NC) -- The papal bull Apostolorum Limina of Pope Paul VI proclaiming the 1975 Holy Year explains how Catholics can earn a plenary indulgence through their participation. The bull says that par- ticipation in the Holy Year can earn "the gift" of a plenary indulgence for "all the faithful who, through a profound con- version of the heart to God, through works of penance, piety and brotherly solidarity, sin- cerely and fervently attest to their desire to remain united in charity with God and their brethren and to make progress in that charity." The terms laid down by the bull for the gaining of the plenary indulgence first require confession of sins, reception of Communion and a prayer for the intentions of the Pope and the college of bishops. With those requirements as a general preparation, persons wishing to gain the indulgences must then either : -- Go in pilgrimage to one of the four patriarchal basilicas or to some other place designated by the Roman authorities, such as the Catacombs, and "there devoutly take part in a liturgical celebration, especially the sacrifice of the Mass, or some exercise of piety, such as, the Way of the Cross, the Rosary ;" -- Visit, "in a group or in- dividually, one of four basilicas and there spend some time in devout recollection, concluding with the Our Father, the profession of faith in any ap- Xei,'t B,rr 'rvk {{att{{i'o khaul ttBtt proved form, and a prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary." The bull also states that those who are prevented by sickness or other serious reasons from making a pilgrimage to Rome may "unite themselves spiritually with this pilgrimage and offer their prayers and sufferings to God" to acquire the plenary indulgence. The same applies to those who are in Rome but for a good reason cannot take part in the visits to the basilicas. The bull points out that a Scouting Has Vocation Plan "plenary indulgence can be da " gained only once a y, ana that "all indulgences can always be applied to the dead," that is, to the souls in purgatory. The bull says also that all priests who come to Rome for the Holy Year can hear con- fessions and exercise all the regular functions that they are authorized to perform in their own dioceses without receiving special permission from the Rome vicariate.
