REMINDER: First Friday All Night Adoration at Carmel Friday Aug 1 – and pray for persecuted Catholics! July 28, 2014

The monthly First Friday at the Carmel starts at 5pm on Friday, Aug 1. Two TLMs during the night, at 8pm and 3am.  Adoration ends with NO Mass at 7am.  Join the nuns as they storm Heaven!  Pray for persecuted Christians!  Gain a plenary indulgence!  I haven’t been for some time, but I plan on staying quite a while this Friday, God willing!

Details on the indulgence, thanks to MJD:

On a hot July evening in the year 1216 Saint Francis of Assisi at prayer devoured by his love for God and a thirst to save souls was visited upon by Our Blessed Savior and Our Blessed Mother. Our Lord spoke to him “Francis you are very zealous for the good souls. Ask me what you want for their salvation.” Francis answered that he wanted an indulgence to all those who enter this church,(The Portiuncula)  who are truly contrite and have confessed their sins. Our Lord consented to Francis’ wish, but only after he received approval from Pope Honorius III. The pope granted this petition, and this indulgence has been extended to all parish churches throughout the world from noon August 1 until midnight on August 2.

The conditions to obtain the Plenary Indulgence of the Forgiveness of Assisi (for oneself or for a departed soul) are as follows:

* Sacramental confession (during eight days before or after the dates below)

* Participation in the Mass and Eucharist.

* Recitation of the Apostles’ Creed, Our Father and a prayer for the pope’s intention.

The Portiuncula Indulgence is a grace not to be missed, not only for yourself but for the many souls suffering in purgatory.

The dates are from noon on August 1 until midnight on August 2, the feast of Our Lady of the Angels.


As a reminder, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter has implored all of its apostolates to make Aug 1 a day of special prayer and penance for the suffering Catholics in the Mideast.  If you’ve never been to an All Night Vigil at the Carmel before, I can think of no better way to meet this great spiritual work of mercy for our suffering brethren.  Please consider coming, it is an awesome experience!  Hearing the nuns pray in that beautiful chapel, seeing souls staying for hours before the Blessed Sacrament, it is so edifying, and it will have such an incredible, beneficent effect!

I pray I see you there!
