We will ask the miraculous intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary to put an end to the coronavirus. Full details about how to join in can be found at phillyevang.org/rosary.
A message from Father Sean O'Neill of Our lady of Consolation Catholic Church in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania. Providing hope and an update on our church's plan during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please read Father O'Neill's Stewardship Letter as a companion piece to the video.
Dear Brother Priests and Deacons,
This Friday, March 27th, in Saint Peter’s Square, Our Holy Father will offer a special, Urbi et Orbi Blessing. Translated as “to the City [of Rome] and to the World, this blessing is typically reserved for Easter and Christmas.”
During this time of strife for our world as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Archbishop Pérez is echoing Pope Francis’ call that faithful from throughout the Universal Church join in prayerful solidarity at 6:00 p.m. Rome time (1:00 p.m. EDT) this Friday.
During this Statio orbis, which will be broadcast by Mondovision and streamed live on the Vatican News Service website (www.vaticannews.va), the Holy Father will grant to all participants a Plenary Indulgence before imparting the Urbi et Orbi Blessing.
Please share this information broadly and join together for this powerful and historic time of prayer with the Holy Father and faithful from around the world. As Archbishop Pérez recently reminded us, “Christ is hope and through Him we are a people of hope!”
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Msgr. Daniel J. Sullivan
Vicar for Clergy
Plenary Indulgence Granted by The Holy Father, Pope Francis, for Coronavirus Victims, Family Members, Health Care Workers & Faithful Under Certain Conditions
Conditions for the Plenary Indulgence
The Decree grants a plenary indulgence to coronavirus patients quarantined by health authorities in hospitals and in their homes if, “with a spirit detached from any sin, they unite themselves spiritually through the media to the celebration of the Holy Mass, the recitation of the Holy Rosary, to the pious practice of the Way of the Cross or other forms of devotion.”
The plenary indulgence can also be obtained by the faithful if they at least “recite the creed, the Lord’s Prayer and a pious invocation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, offering this trial in a spirit of faith in God and charity towards their brothers and sisters, with the will to fulfill the usual conditions (sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion and prayer according to the Holy father’s intentions), as soon as possible.”
A plenary indulgence is also granted to healthcare workers, family members and all those who, “exposing themselves to the risk of contagion, care for the sick” under the same conditions stated above.
Also, the faithful who offer a “visit to the Blessed Sacrament, or Eucharistic adoration, or read the Holy Scriptures for half an hour, or recite the Holy Rosary, or the pious exercise of the Way of the Cross, or the recitation of the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy” while praying for an end to the pandemic will be granted a plenary indulgence.
