Vatican extends November Plenary Indulgence for 2020


The Holy See has extended the availability of certain plenary indulgences for the souls in Purgatory, out of concern for the faithful during this time of pandemic.

According to a decree of 23rd October, certain indulgenced acts, which can help to remit the temporal punishment due to sin for those who have died in a state of grace, can be obtained throughout the entire month of November 2020.

The decree was signed by Cardinal Mauro Piacenza, major penitentiary of the Apostolic Penitentiary.

A Plenary Indulgence, applicable to the Faithful Departed, may be gained, under the usual conditions of Confession, Holy Communion and prayer for the Holy Father’s intentions, by making a devout visit to a parish church or a cemetery throughout November this year.
