In post-Angelus greetings, the Pope recalled that today, plenary indulgence in Franciscan churches and parishes around the world could be received.
The Solemnity of Forgiveness of Assisi, which is celebrated this Sunday, was in the Pope's words in the post-Angelus greetings, when he recalled that throughout the day the faithful will be able to receive plenary indulgence, absolution for their sins, "the spiritual gift that Saint Francis obtained from God through the intercession of the Virgin Mary ":
“It is a plenary indulgence that can be received by approaching the Sacraments of Confession and the Eucharist and visiting a parish or Franciscan church, reciting the Creed, the Our Father and praying for the Pope and his intentions. Indulgence can also be aimed at a deceased person. How important it is to put God's forgiveness at the center, which "generates paradise" in us and around us! This forgiveness that comes from the heart of God is merciful ".
Francis then addressed those present at the recitation of the Angelus, Romans and pilgrims, to wish them, and all those who followed the Angelus through the media, to spend a vacation marked by nature and spirituality, launching the at the same time an appeal to the institutions, so that they do not forget to safeguard jobs:
“I hope that during this period many people can live a few days of rest and contact with nature, in which they can also recharge their spiritual dimension. At the same time, I hope that, with the converging efforts of all political and economic leaders, work will be relaunched: without work, families and society cannot move forward. Let us pray for this, because it is and will be a problem of the post-pandemic, poverty and lack of work and it takes a lot of solidarity and a lot of creativity to solve this problem ”.
