North Wales: celebrate Feast of Our Lady of the Angels with Poor Clares
Comment Email Print
¬†The Feast of Our Lady of the Angels of the Portiuncula will be celebrated at Ty Mam Duw Poor Clare Collettine Community with Mass and prayers for the Portiuncula Indulgence, on Friday 1 August at 6.30pm. Of late, Indulgences ≠ a misleading name for a great idea ≠ have been making a gentle return to fashion and Benedict XVI has given them for a number of occasions, including most recently World Youth Day. If Luther could take such a profound objection to their maladministration, their rightful observance might be worth a second glance. In St Francis' day, to obtain a plenary Indulgence - the remission of the temporal punishment due to sin - one had to make a lengthy pilgrimage or go on crusade. Francis wanted this beautiful spiritual gift to be available to the poor and the least, and he persuaded Pope Honorius III to grant it to his little Church of Our Lady of the Angels on the day of its consecration. The gift was subsequently extended to all Franciscan Churches You are so welcome to join the Sisters of Ty Mam Duw on this happy Franciscan family occasion. The prayers for the Assisi Pardon, the Plenary Indulgence of the Portiuncula and the celebration of Holy Mass will be preceded from 5.30 by an hour of prayer and chants, during which the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available.
