Dedication of the Basilica

Basilica of San Albino Invites you for a plenary indulgence on the Dedication of the Basilica on 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 participate in any sacred rite or at least recite the Lord’s Prayer and the profession of faith can receive a plenary indulgence. The faithful may obtain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions for indulgences (see below).

A plenary indulgence can be gained only once a day.

In order to obtain an indulgence, the faithful must, in addition to being in the state of grace, participate in the celebration (Vespers or at least visit the basilica on one of those special days).

The faithful must have the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin.

The usual conditions to receive an indulgence are:
1*. Have sacramentally confessed their sins;
2*. Receive the Holy Eucharist;
3*. Pray for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff (At least one Our Father and one Hail Mary) while at the Basilica.

*Within several days of visiting the Basilica on one of these special days.

Indulgence Corner

Did you know?

Fourth grant: a partial indulgence is granted to the Christian faithful who, in the particular circumstances of daily life, voluntarily give explicit witness to their faith before others.

This grant encourages the faithful to profess their faith openly, for the glory of God and the building up of the Church.

“Let your Creed be a mirror for you. See yourself in it, if you believe all that you profess and rejoice daily in your faith.” (San Augustin). The Christian life of each and every day should be like the “Amen” concluding the “I believe” of our profession of faith.

“Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my Heavenly Father.” Mt 10:32
