Special Blessing – Pope Francis announced Sunday that he will give a special blessing called an Urbi et Orbi this week with the opportunity for Catholics to receive a plenary indulgence by tuning in via media on Friday, March 27, 6:00 p.m. Rome time  (1:00 p.m. Eastern Time).

From the GA Bulletin:
With the public joining him only by television, internet or radio, “we will listen to the word of God, raise our prayer (and) adore the Blessed Sacrament,” he said. “At the end, I will give the benediction ‘urbi et orbi,’ to which will be connected the possibility of receiving a plenary indulgence.”

An indulgence is an ancient practice of prayer and penance for the remission of the temporal punishment a person is due for sins that have been forgiven. In Catholic teaching, a person can draw on the merits of Jesus and the saints to claim the indulgence for themselves or offer it on behalf of someone who has died.
