Because it is November there are special Plenary Indulgences available.

Every year from Nov 1st (Today All Saints Day) through Nov 8th the partial indulgence for visiting a cemetery and praying for the dead becomes a full Plenary indulgence (under the normal conditions listed above). In addition to this tomorrow Nov 2nd (All Souls day) a Plenary indulgence can be earned by simply visiting a church.

Normally this indulgence returns to a partial indulgence after the 8th but Pope Francis has graciously extended the chance to earn a Plenary Indulgence for visiting a cemetery and praying for the dead for the entire month of November.

This is actually very similar to what he did when he declared a holy year (normally every 25 years) about a decade ago making the indulgences and graces of such a year available a full decade early. In my opinion this act, along with his warnings on the reality of the Devil they have been the highlights of his papacy.

So take advantage of Francis’ excellent extension of this annual grace to gain a Plenary Indulgence for a soul in purgatory and remember to take advantage of all the partial indulgences available on a daily basis.

The soul you save just might be your own.
