Sacred Liturgy -
Indulgences for the Seasons of Lent and Triduum
Every Friday of Lent: Recitation of O Good and Sweetest Jesus
after reception of the Eucharist before an
image of the crucified Christ.
Holy Thursday: Praying the Tantum Ergo after the Mass of the
Good Friday: Participating in the Veneration of the Cross.
Holy Saturday: Renewing your baptismal vows at the Easter Vigil
Mass (renewing your baptismal vows
on the anniversary of your baptism may also earn a plenary
indulgence). Attending any Mass of
First Communion (Easter Vigil Mass is a First Communion Mass)
may likewise earn a plenary
indulgence. Only one plenary indulgence may be won per day.
Stations of the Cross: This always merits a plenary indulgence,
no matter the season. It must be
performed before 14 stations, lawfully erected, with devout
meditation on the Passion of Our
Lord and movement from one station to the next. If the crowd is
large, the leader at least must
move from cross to cross.
