Stations of the (Part 2)

Tonight: Stations of the Cross, 5:30 pm, and Eucharistic Adoration, 6-7 pm, Newman Center chapel.

A plenary indulgence can be gained by praying the Stations of the Cross. A plenary indulgence removes all temporal punishment due to sin which, basically, means a get-out-of-Purgatory free card for someone you know who has died. So, you can send someone to Heaven tonight by praying the Stations with us and satisfying the following conditions:

"To gain a plenary indulgence you must perform the act (Stations of the Cross, e.g.) with a contrite heart, plus you must go to confession (one confession may suffice for several plenary indulgences), receive Holy Communion, and pray for the pope’s intentions. (An Our Father and a Hail Mary said for the pope’s intentions are sufficient, although you are free to substitute other prayers of your own choice.) The final condition is that you must be free from all attachment to sin, including venial sin." To view the full article from, click on today's title.
