August 2 – Portiuncula Indulgence 

On August 2, the faithful can receive a plenary indulgence by reciting the Apostle’s Creed and the Our Father inside any Minor Basilica, Cathedral, or parish church (read more about this particular indulgence here). Of course, the usual conditions for an indulgence (confession and detachment from sin, reception of the Eucharist, and prayers for the intentions of the Holy Father), still apply.

Quo Primum/Extraordinary Faith

Today marks the 445th anniversary of Pope St. Pius V’s apostolic constitution “Quo primum,” which furthered the work began by the Council of Trent and promulgated the 1570 Missale Romanum throughout the entire world. Read/listen here! The full text of this apostolic constitution can be found here.

In other news, tomorrow (July 15) EWTN will be airing the fifth episode of “Extraordinary Faith” at 3am and 6:30pm (eastern time). The title of this episode is “Chicago: part 2 of 2.”

From their website: “Extraordinary Faith is a monthly 30 minute television program on EWTN that celebrates the beauty of classical Catholic sacred art, architecture, music, and liturgy. We’ll take you to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring churches. We’ll introduce you to dynamic young Catholics whose faith has survived the demands of a secular world and who are becoming key players in the New Evangelization by sharing their enthusiasm for the traditions of Catholicism. We’ll show you the rich vocations harvest that is synonymous with the movement to restore the Extraordinary Form of Mass to mainstream parish life. We’ll give you the resources to find churches that offer traditional worship experiences, and we’ll even assist you to organize your own Latin Masses.”
