Decree on the granting of indulgences for the Year of Faith


DECRETUM



Quinquagesimo adveniente anniversario ex quo Concilium Oecumenicum Vaticanum II inauguratum est, Beatissimus Pater Benedictus XVI Annum Fidei indixit, qui incipiet die 11 octobris a. 2012, terminabitur vero die 24 novembris a. 2013, in sollemnitate D. N. Iesu Christi universorum Regis.

Sperantes fore ut «Eventus ille opportunus erit ad totam Ecclesiae compagem introducendam in tempus quo peculiaris instruatur meditatio et fides iterum detegatur» (Motu pr. Porta fidei, n. 4), Praelaturae fideles impellere cupimus ad hunc Annum gratiae percurrendum in arta coniunctione cum Romano Pontifice eiusque intentionibus cumque universa sancta Ecclesia.

Hunc vero in finem, prae oculis quidem habitis quae in Decreto Paenitentiariae Apostolicae diei 14 septembris a. 2012 praescribuntur,


DECERNIMUS



1. Servatis condicionibus in Decreto supra citato statutis, hoc Anno Fidei perdurante, donum indulgentiae plenariae lucrari poterunt:

a) Hi omnes qui ecclesiam Praelatitiam Sanctae Mariae de Pace in forma peregrinationis visitent et ibi alicui sacrae functioni intersint vel saltem per congruum temporis spatium orent, concludentes Oratione Dominica, Fidei professione ac invocatione Beatae Mariae Virginis et Sancti Iosephmariae (cfr. Decr. Paenitentiariae Apostolicae, 14 septembris a. 2012, § b).

b) Praelaturae fideles qui in quolibet loco sacro eucharisticae celebrationi sollemni intersint, addita Fidei Professione, in sollemnitatibus Domini et Beatae Mariae Virginis atque in festis Apostolorum et Patronorum Praelaturae (cfr. Codex iuris particularis Operis Dei, n. 5), necnon, anno 2012, die 28 novembris, anno vero 2013 diebus 9 ianuarii, 14 februarii, 20 aprilis, 2 maii, 26 iunii, 16 iulii, 14 septembris et 2 octobris (cfr. Decr. Paenitentiariae Apostolicae, 14 septembris a. 2012, § c).

c) Fideles omnes recipientes Benedictionem Papalem cum adnexa plenaria indulgentia quam Nos impertiemur in sollemni celebratione festi Sancti Iosephmariae, die 26 iunii a. 2013 (cfr. Decr. Paenitentiariae Apostolicae, 14 septembris a. 2012).

2. Praelaturae sacerdotibus qui in ecclesia Praelatitia confessiones excipiunt, pro foro interno tantum, facultates concedimus de quibus in can. 508 § 1 CIC (cfr. Decr. Paenitentiariae Apostolicae, 14 septembris a. 2012).

Datum Romae, apud aedes Curiae Praelatitiae, die 11 octobris a. 2012, Anno Fidei ineunte.

TRANSLATION INTO ENGLISH


DECREE



For the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of Vatican II, the Holy Father has convoked a Year of Faith that begins on October 11, 2012 and ends on the solemnity of Christ the King, November 24, 2013.

With the hope that this will be “a good opportunity to usher the whole Church into a time of particular reflection and rediscovery of the faith” (Motu proprio "Porta fidei," no. 4), I encourage the faithful of the Prelature to take good advantage of this Year of grace, closely united to the Roman Pontiff and his intentions, and to the Universal Church.

Therefore, taking into account the indications of the Decree of the Sacred Penitentiary dated September 14, 2012


I ESTABLISH:



1. A plenary indulgence can be gained during this Year of Faith, with the conditions set forth in the above-mentioned Decree, by:

a) All those who make a pilgrimage to the Prelatic church of Our Lady of Peace and take part in a sacred ceremony or at least spend some time in prayer there, ending with an Our Father, the Creed and an invocation to our Lady and to St. Josemaría (cf. Decree of the Penitentiary, September 14, 2012, § b).

b) The faithful of the Prelature who, besides praying the Profession of Faith, take part in a solemn Eucharistic celebration in any sacred place on the Solemnities of our Lord and of the Blessed Virgin Mary, on the feasts of the Apostles and Patrons of the Prelature (cf. Codex iuris particularis Operis Dei, no. 5), January 9, February 14, April 20, May 2, June 26, July 16, September 14, October 2, and on the upcoming November 28 (cf. Decree of the Penitentiary, September 14, 2012, § c).

c) All the faithful who receive devoutly the Papal Blessing with plenary indulgence that I will impart in the solemn celebration of the feast of St. Josemaria on the upcoming June 26 (cf. Decree of the Penitentiary, September 14, 2012).

2. I grant in the internal forum to the priests of the Prelature who hear confessions in the Prelatic church the faculties in c. 508 §1 of the CIC (cf. Decree of the Penitentiary, September 14, 2012).


Given in Rome, see of the Prelatic Curia, October 11, 2012, on the start of the Year of Faith.
