Get ready to indulge yourself


Vatican, Nov. 29 (CWNews.com) - Pope Benedict XVI has declared a plenary indulgence for Catholics who honor the Virgin Mary on the feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8.

The indulgence declared by Pope Benedict may be obtained by those who "participate in a sacred function in honor of the Virgin, or at least least offer open testimony of Marian devotion before an image of Mary Immaculate exposed for public veneration, adding the recitation of the Our Father and of the Creed, and some invocation to the Virgin."

Wow, a plenary indulgence. I'm doing it. Then I'll be a saint for at least a few minutes.

I will also do what is necessary for the indulgence. We also must receive the Holy Eucharist and go to confession within 8 days either before or after 12/8. We need to offer a prayer for the Holy Father and do the indulgences act and be detached from sin.

Ave Maria!

Apostles Creed or Nicene Creed?

"Apostles Creed or Nicene Creed?"

Neither one, but rather the Athanasian Creed, or 'Quicumque Vult." That's Latin for "Whoever Wishes..."

Whoever Wishes to gain this indulgence will use the Athanasian Creed which is very cool and long and therefore better than either of the other two.

yeah, except there's one little problem. You can't get there from here. Paul VI changed the rules for plenaries that made it impossible to get them. His mania for vague and ambiguous language was such a gift to the Church, it even locked up the treasury of the merits of the saints.
