Our next newsletter will be out in the beginning of July.
On Good Friday there are Indulgences that can be gained.. They are as follows:
A plenary indulgence can be gained to those who assist at Adoration of the Cross and kiss it in the solemn liturgical action on Good Friday.
(An indulgence can be gained by going to confession eight days before or after gaining the indulgence, by praying for the Holy Father (one Our Father, one Hail Mary and one Glory Be) and with the intention of gaining the indulgence.)
(All indulgences can be gained for the Poor/Holy Souls in Purgatory)
Also, the following prayer
I adore You, O glorious Cross, which was adorned with the Heart and Body of my Savior Jesus Christ, stained and covered with blood. I adore You, O Holy Cross, out of love for Him, Jesus, who is my Savior and my God.
Pope Pius IX declared that reciting this prayer five times on Friday will free five souls from Purgatory and 33 souls by reciting it on Good Friday. This prayer should be recited before a crucifix with a contrite heart and praying a few minutes for the Pope.
