|Portiuncula in St. Mary of the Angels|
Attain the plenary indulgence of the forgiveness of Assisi in honour of Our Lady of the Angels anytime during the 24 hours between Vespers on August 1 through August 2. This indulgence was obtained by St. Francis of Assisi himself from Jesus and approved by Pope Honorius III in the 13th century.
In his 1967 release “Indulgentiarum Doctrina,”Pope Paul VI completely reformed the norms and grants of indulgences, and the Portiuncula Indulgence was again confirmed at that time. The requirements for this indulgence include a devout visit to any Catholic church, chapel, or oratory; recitation of the Apostles Creed, an Our Father, Hail Mary, & Glory Be for the Holy Father's intentions; reception of Holy Communion; and the Sacrament of Reconciliation within 8 days.
