Plenary Indulgences for the Living and the Faithful Departed

Don't miss these opportunities to gain plenary indulgences (which can be applied to the souls in Purgatory)!

5. Worth special mention are those grants which list works by which the Christian faithful, by performing any one of them, can obtain a plenary indulgence every day of the year:

adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for at least one half hour (no. 3);

devout reading of the Sacred Scriptures for at least one half hour (no. 50);

the devout performance of the Stations of the Cross (no. 63);

the recitation of the Marian Rosary in a church or oratory, with members of the family, in a religious Community, or in a pious association (no. 48).

But even in these instances what is stated in norm 21, paragraph 1, retains its force, namely, a plenary indulgence can be obtained but once a day. (Source)
