You may still have this to receive the plenary indulgence known as the “Pardon of Assisi”. Pope Francis urged everyone to take advantage of this opportunity in comments following Sunday’s Angelus in St. Peter’s Square.

“The ‘Pardon of Assisi’ began yesterday and continues until midnight today, the spiritual gift that Saint Francis obtained from God through the intercession of the Virgin Mary,” Pope Francis pointed out. “It is a plenary indulgence that may be received by partaking of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist and visiting a parish or Franciscan church, reciting the Creed, the Lord’s prayer and praying for the Pope and his intentions.

“The indulgence can also be obtained for a deceased person. How important it is to always put God’s forgiveness, which ‘generates heaven’ in us and around us, back at the center, this pardon that comes from God’s heart who is merciful!”
