    Towards the end of this week…on August 1st to be exact, the Feast of St. Peter in Chains will be celebrated. As many of you know, St. Peter was unjustly imprisoned and put in chains, but we celebrate the fact that an angel delivered him from captivity, with his chains literally falling off of him, as well as being provided an easy exit from prison unto freedom. How appropriate, then, that our dearest Lord would use this great feast to introduce, through St. Francis of Assisi, a most wonderful plenary indulgence that, connected with confession, would free men from the chains and prison of their eternal and temporal debts due to sin that would occur on August 2, the Feast of Our Lady of the Angels. It is called the Portiuncula Indulgence and it was and is the first plenary indulgence that was ever granted in the Church. There were indeed indulgences at all times, but they were only partial…that is only a partial removal of the temporal punishments due to sin that could be obtained by the members of the Church. But for him who gains the Portiuncula Indulgence…he is freed from all temporal punishments and becomes as pure and unchained as he was after holy baptism. So zealous for the salvation of souls was St. Francis, that he boldly sought an excess of mercy for us criminals from our Lord and from the Roman Pontiff, for as St. Francis stated: O my Brothers and Sisters, I want you all to go to Heaven!  For more please visit http://www.reginaprophetarum & please say 3 Hail Marys for Father

  • Also, August 2nd is the feast day of the great St. Alphonsus de Liguori.
    For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?
