THE GENERAL SUPERIOR’S COMMUNIQUÉ
concerning the opportunity
for the members of the Congregation of Marian Fathers
to gain a plenary indulgence

Rome, April 30, 2012
Prot. No 72/2012

I wish to communicate that on March 30, 2012, the Apostolic Penitentiary granted to members of the Congregation of the Marian Fathers in perpetuum (Prot. No 1279/11/I) the opportunity to gain on May 18th – the liturgical commemoration of Blessed Fr. Stanislaus Papczyński – a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions (sacramental confession, Holy Communion, prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father), while making, at least privately, a renewal of their pledge to faithfully fulfill all duties resultant from their Marian vocation.

I also wish to remind the members of the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary that – by the rescript of the Apostolic Penitentiary of February 2, 1968 – they were also granted in perpetuum the opportunity to gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions on the following days:

I. For the entire Congregation:
on the Solemnities of the Immaculate Conception of the Most B.V.M. and of St. Joseph, the Spouse of the B.V.M.;
at the celebration of the General Chapter.
II. For individual religious houses:
on the feast day of the main Patron of that house;
on the liturgical commemoration or the feast of a Saint or a Blessed, whose body or a significant relic is being preserved at that house;
on the canonical visitation at that house (either Provincial or General).
III. For individual members:
on the day of entrance into the novitiate;
on the day of their first religious profession;
on the day of their perpetual profession;
on the 25th, 50th, 60th, and 75th anniversary of their first religious profession.

Please make this communiqué, along with the text of the appropriate decree, known to all of the members of your Province or Vicariate.
