The soul you help out of Purgatory can be someone you love

From the Handbook of Indulgences


Visiting a Church or an Oratory on All Souls Day

A plenary (“full”) indulgence, which is applicable only to the souls in Purgatory is granted to the Christian faithful who devoutly visit a church or an oratory on (November 2nd,) All Souls Day.

Will you not, for love, try today to gain this indulgence?

Requirements for Obtaining a Plenary Indulgence on All Souls Day (Nov. 2nd)

Visit a church and pray for souls in Purgatory

Say one “Our Father” and the “Creed” in the visit to the church

Say one “Our Father” and one “Hail Mary” for the Holy Father’s intentions

Worthily receive Holy Communion (ideally on the same day if you can get to Mass)

Make a sacramental confession within a week of All Souls Day

For a plenary indulgence be free from all attachment to sin, even venial sin (otherwise, the indulgence is partial, not plenary, “full”).
