August 1 & 2 are the dates to obtain a plenary indulgence through the Great Pardon of Assisi.
If you are confused about how to obtain the Great Pardon of Assisi, you are not alone. We have been confused ourselves, and finally want to let you know the real story.
There have been some mis-leading posts and emails as to how one can get the plenary indulgence as a result of the Great Pardon of Assisi….not their fault, because, as we said….there is a lot of confusion.
We want to give you the exact details:
The great pardon of Assisi cannot be obtained at just any parish church, as some websites have reported. It is confusing, but after a great deal of research we have the actual conditions here. Taken directly from the Saint Anthony Shrine in Cincinnati, Ohio, here is the straight scoop:
“However, it is now possible to receive the indulgence at all the parish churches in Assisi…….and at all Franciscan churches throughout the world, when meeting the conditions of Communion, Confession and praying for the Pope’s intentions“.
Our guess is that if there is no Franciscan church in your area, then you cannot receive the Great Pardon of Assisi. If we find out differently we will let you know.
Please help spread the word so that those wishing to get the Great Pardon of Assisi will know where to go.
