Fr Josemaria gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Mar 21, 2020, on how in this difficult time we can obtain a plenary indulgence for praying for an end to the Coronavirus and for the health and salvation of those infected by it. It is a way for God to provide grace at all times, even when the ordinary means of graces, the sacrament, are not available.

Normal Conditions:

  • Sacramental Confession

  • Eucharistic Communion

  • Prayer with Pope's intention

  • or at least the will to fulfill these conditions as soon as possible

Extraordinary means on this difficult time:

  • Unite themselves spiritually even though the media with:

    • Celebration of the Mass

    • or to other devotions like Rosary, Station of the Cross

    • or Recite the creed, the Lord's Prayer, invocation to Our Lady

  • and where possible

    • Visit the blessed sacrament, adoration

    • or Read Scripture

With the intention of :

  • ending the pandemic

  • relief of those suffering from the virus

  • The salvation of the souls of those who die from it.
