Plenary Indulgence for the Poor Souls of Priests

At the behest of the Ineffiable Father Z:

I, Baron von Korf, hereby call on all my readers (yes, both of you) to help the Poor Souls of Priests in Purgatory. During the Octave of All Saints it is possible to receive a plenary indulgence, only for a Poor Soul in Purgatory, by visiting a graveyard and praying for the Poor Souls in Purgatory. This is with the usual conditions of course. Also on All Soul's (this Monday) by going to a church or public oratory and praying the Credo and a Pater Noster, you can likewise receive a plenary indulgence, again only for a poor soul.

This is the Year of the Priest and so it would only be fitting to offer these indulgences for the Poor Souls of Priests who have no one to pray for them. Priests are easily forgotten, and since they have no worldly children of their own they need us, their spiritual children, to honor their memory and pray for them. The old saying is 'No man is deader than a Priest', precisely for this reason.

The Devil hates Priests more than the rest of us because of the great graces they bring to the world. They are beset by all sorts of temptations as they live and then he strives to make them forgotten, or worse, when they die. So go forth into this spiritual battle!

--The Baron
Ceterum autem censeo, Tabulam esse delendam!

I tend to add a prayer "for those who need it"-- I figure there's got to be a decent crop of folks Up There who are at least as squirrelly about stuff as I am....

I certainly will pray for the souls of priests and for all forgotten souls.

Thank you.
