Plenary Indulgence for the Year of Faith
In accordance with a Decree issued in Rome on 5 October, during the Year of Faith a Plenary Indulgence for the temporal punishment of sins, imparted by the mercy of God and applicable also to the souls of deceased faithful, may be obtained by all faithful who, truly penitent, take Sacramental Confession and the Eucharist and pray in accordance with the intentions of the Holy Father on the following occasions: Each time they visit the Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe at St Joseph’s, Bedford.
In anticipation of the Year of Faith, the diocesan Procession of Faith was held in Bedford, in honour of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The diocesan website carries a full report and photos of a memorable day.
As the Year of Faith approaches, we ask Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, to teach us how to bring others to her Son.
