Lourdes + 150
Plenary Indulgence Reminder


As the Pope reminded all Catholics today, we are amidst a blessed season of Plenary Indulgences in celebration of the Jubilee of the 150th Anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady in Lourdes, France.

Each and every member of the Christian faithful who, truly repentant, is purified through sacramental confession, restored through the Most Holy Eucharist and offers prayers for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff, will be able to gain a Plenary Indulgence daily, which may also be applied, by way of suffrage, to the souls of the faithful in Purgatory:
...
B) If, from the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord on 2 February 2008 until the end of the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lourdes on 11 February 2008, which is also the 150th Anniversary of the Apparition, they devoutly visit a blessed image of the Holy Virgin Mary of Lourdes in any church, chapel, grotto or other suitable place in which it is solemnly displayed, and in the presence of that image perform some pious act of Marian devotion, or at least pause to reflect for an appropriate length of time, concluding with the Lord's Prayer, some legitimate form of the Profession of Faith, and the Jubilee prayer or some other Marian invocation. (Apostolic Penitentiary)

What is the Jubilee prayer?

The Jubilee prayer is available here, but ANY Marian invocation may be used in its place.
