OP JubileeResponding to God’s generosity is what the Roman Pontiff is calling not only the Order of Preachers –indeed, the entire Dominican family, all those who follow in some way the charism of Saint Dominic, by giving an special of the Indulgence. Pope Francis has granted the privilege of an indulgence for the Order of Preachers who began their year-long 800th Jubilee today.

The Plenary Indulgence is given by the Pope through the Apostolic Penitentiary. This indulgence is given under the usual conditions: sacramental confession, Eucharistic Communion, and prayer for the Supreme Pontiff. But the spiritual program is more plentiful that can be read in the document posted herein. You will note that His Holiness invites the priests of the Order to be available to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance in “all Jubilee places and frequently administer the Holy Communion to the infirm.”
