" INDULGENCES FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY "
"I. On All Souls Day (November 2), a"
"plenary indulgence that is applicable only to the Poor Souls is granted to those who visit any parish church and there recite one Our Father and one Apostles' Creed."
"This act can release one soul from Purgatory if all of the conditions that are listed below are met."
"II. On all the days from November 1st through November 8th, inclusive, a plenary indulgence applicable only to the Poor Souls is granted to those who visit a cemetery and pray, even if only mentally, for the departed."
"Here are the conditions for both indulgences:"
"1. Only one plenary indulgence can be granted per day."
"2. It is necessary to be in the state of grace at the time the work is completed."
"3. Freedom from attachment to a particular sin, even venial sin, is necessary, or the indulgence is only partial."
"4. Holy Communion must be received each time the indulgence is sought."
"5. Prayers must be recited for the intentions of the Holy Father on each day the indulgence is sought. For example: the Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, and at the end, ""Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen."""
"6. A sacramental Confession must be made within a week of completion of the prescribed work. One Confession made during the week, made with the intention of gaining all the indulgences, is sufficient."
