Portiuncula Indulgence this Friday August 2nd: This Friday the Church offers a special plenary indulgence called the Portiuncula Indulgence, which commemorates the little chapel where St. Francis of Assisi discovered his vocation. The indulgence can be made anytime after Vespers on Thursday August 1st and before sundown on Friday August 2nd.  The indulgence was originally only available to those who visited the chapel in Italy, but now extends to the universal church. A plenary indulgence is available under the usual conditions.
