Feast of Our Lady of the Angels of Portiuncula
Francis persuaded the Pope to give an indulgence to anyone who came into the Portiuncola chapel and pray for the forgiveness of sins. The Portiuncola privilege has been extended to all Franciscan churches and chapels; as long as one also goes to confession, attends Mass and receives communion.
Pray for us, Mary, Our Lady of the Angels, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
