Laudetur Iesus Christus and blessed feast of the Holy Maccabees (see article here)! As noted in our weekend update, tomorrow Tuesday August 2nd, is the feast of St. Alphonsus Liguori, the great doctor of moral theology. It is also a day when 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 was originally only available to those who visited the chapel in Italy, but now extends to the universal church. The indulgence can be made any time after Vespers this evening Monday August 1st and before sundown on Tuesday August 2nd. A plenary indulgence is available under the usual conditions:
1. Receive sacramental confession (8 days before of after)
2. Receive the Holy Eucharist at Holy Mass on August 2nd
3. Enter a parish church and, with a contrite heart, pray the Our Father, Apostles Creed, and a pray of his/her own choosing for the intentions of the Pope

Supporting Sensus Fidelium
Lastly, in our weekend update, we shared the amazing new Catholic TV platform Sensus Fidelium TV (SFTV) created by Sensus Fidelium, the online traditional Catholic apostolate founded by Steve Cunningham who along with his family lives and attends the Latin Mass here in Charlotte. This apostolate has helped keep the flame of tradition and the Latin Mass burning strong in the souls of so many (including converts) thanks to the great Latin Mass sermons and catechesis hosted on its many platforms. Sensus Fidlium is a great Catholic response to the “cancel culture” and the new TV platform takes it to a new level. This won’t be canceled by Big Tech or Rome anytime soon.
However, from its website to the new SFTV platform, running these programs naturally incur some costs. The CLMC doesn’t make pitches for donations often, but if you’ve benefited from Sensus Fidelium’s work and programs over the years (like Fr. Ripperger’s talks), this may be worthy of your support (it is for us). The contact info is below:
