How to Gain Indulgences for Souls in Purgatory

October 17, 2014
Acts to perform for a plenary indulgence: From November 1st to November 8th: visit of a cemetery with mental prayer for the poor souls

2014 Holy Souls Letter

October 17, 2014
I urge you take advantage of this important opportunity to relieve the poor souls in purgatory, particularly in this time of crisis when prayers for the deceased have greatly diminished in number and in fervor. I therefore encourage you to pray earnestly for the dead during the month of November. By visiting a cemetery and praying even mentally each day from November 1st to the 8th, one may also gain a plenary indulgence for the faithful departed. Please click here for specific instructions on how to obtain indulgences.

Around the year 1520 the Chablais, part of the duchy of Savoy on the south shore of Lake Geneva, was invaded by militant Protestants from Berne, who took it and the Vaud and the Gex regions on the north shore of the lake. Catholic worship was outlawed, and churches were burned or razed when not appropriated for Protestant use. Religious orders were suppressed and priests expelled.
