A plenary indulgence is available on each of these days.

A plenary indulgence can be gained only once a day. In order to obtain it, the faithful must, in addition to being in the state of grace, participate in the celebration (Vespers), must have the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin and:

1*. Have sacramentally confessed their sins;

2*. Receive the Holy Eucharist (it is certainly better to receive it while participating in Holy Mass, but for the indulgence only Holy Communion is required);

3*. Pray for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff.. (One Our Father and one Hail Mary)
*Within several days of participating in the celebration
