Indulgence Corner


Basilica of San Albino Invites you for vespers and for a plenary indulgence on the following dates:

The Feast Day of San Albino - Sunday, March 1, 2020
The Visita!on - Sunday, May 31, 2020
Gran!ng of Title of the Basilica - Sunday, June 21, 2020
Solemnity of Peter and Paul - Monday, June 29, 2020
The Por!uncula Indulgence - Sunday, August 2, 2020
Dedica!on of the Basilica - Sunday, November 1, 2020

A special privilege is given by the Pope for basilicas. On certain days the faithful who devoutly visit a basilica and within it par!cipate in any sacred rite can receive a plenary indulgence. The faithful may obtain a plenary indulgence under these condi!ons:

- The plenary indulgence can be gained only once a day
- In order to obtain an indulgence, the faithful must, in addi!on to being in the state of grace, par!cipate in the celebra!on, or at least visit the basilica on one of those special days.
- The faithful must have the interior disposi!on of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin.
- Have sacramentally confessed their sins*;
- Receive the Holy Eucharist*
- Pray for the inten!ons of the Supreme Pon!ff (At least one Our Father and one Hail Mary) and pray the profession of faith, while at the Basilica.

*Within several days of visi!ng the Basilica.

It is appropriate, but not necessary, that the sacramental Confession and especially Holy Communion and the prayer for the Pope’s inten!ons take place on the same day that the indulgence work is performed; but it is sufficient that these sacred rites and prayers be carried out within several days (about 20) before or a$er the indulgenced act. Prayer for the Pope’s inten!ons is le$ to the choice of the faithful, an “Our Father” and a “Hail Mary” are suggested. One sacramental Confession suffices for several plenary indulgences, but a separate Holy Communion and a separate prayer for the Holy Father’s inten!ons are required for each plenary indulgence.

Indulgences can always be applied either to oneself or to the souls of the deceased, but they cannot be applied to other persons living on earth.
