    PLENARY INDULGENCE What is it? - Would you like to receive it? Pope Francis declared the 2016 as the Year of MERCY and begins on December the 8th, 2015. In the sacrament of baptism we are forgiven the guilt and punishment related to sin. In the Sacrament of Penance we receive the forgiveness of sins. But, not the temporal punishment, which is paid in purgatory that requires, divine justice. The Church has the power to make such temporary remission of the divine punishment. The Church received this power by Christ: "Whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven" (Mt 18,18). To gain a plenary indulgence, in a normal year or Holy Year, you should always meet this requirements: 1.- Having the intention of gaining indulgences. 2.- Not have any sin (or even venial) Sacramental Confession - done to conscience 3.- Attend Mass and receive Holy Communion 4. - Pray for the intentions of the Holy Father (Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory). 5. - Visit the designated church and while there keep company to the Blessed Sacrament at least 30 minutes to receive the indulgence. Alt- hough the communion and the prayer for the Holy Father is required on the same day that executes the work or prayer, confession can be made 8 days earlier.

    Jubilee Year of Mercy Besides a new liturgical year, this Advent features an additional “beginning”—an opening of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, a graced opportunity to contemplate more profoundly and live more concretely the mystery of God’s unconditional love. Pope Francis says that mercy, as the bridge connecting God and the human family, opens our hearts to welcome God’s love for us sinners and our eyes to recognize others, especially society’s least loved and most vulnerable, as brothers and sisters entrusted to our care. Jesus’ future coming as the joyful advent of our redemption. But in a unique way, this Jubilee Year’s Advent reminds us that Jesus, whose coming we await, is already present among us, in those for whom we need to become instruments of God’s mercy. Pope Francis chose to inaugurate the Jubilee Year of Mercy last Tuesday because December 8 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the closing of Vatican II. That council, Pope Francis reminds us, inaugurated a new phase in the Church’s history. The Spirit called the Church to tear down the walls that for far too long had made it a fortress, and to proclaim the gospel in a new, more accessible way. Pope Francis quotes Saint John XXIII in declaring the Church’s preference for “the medicine of mercy,” and Blessed Paul VI in proposing the Good Samaritan as our model for discipleship (Misericordiae Vultus, 4). Pope Francis adds that God’s mercy is “the beating heart of the Gospel,” and that mercy “must penetrate the heart and mind” of every disciple (MV, 12). Three times today’s Gospel asks, “What should I do?” Pope Francis would say: Imitate Jesus, who came not wielding the fiery judgment that John the Baptist had th
