Indulgences for the Month of November

Reactions 
Omnes Christifideles qui, sive publice sive privatim, peculiaribus suffragiis devotisque obsequiis animabus in Purgatorio solamen per integrum mensem Novembrem quotidie afferre studuerint, lucrantur indulgentiam septem annorum totidemque quadragenarum quolibet die, et plenariam indulgentiam in una memorati mensis die uniuscujusque arbitrio eligenda, qua vere poenitentes, confessi ac s. Communione refecti fuerint, et aliquam ecclesiam vel publicum sacellum adiverint, ibique ad mentem Sanctitatis Suae pie oraverint. (Decr. 17 Jan. 1888, ap. Racolta, n. 309) .

Notanda : -1. Indulgentia toties quoties 3 Novembris. Decreto 25 Junii 1914, Pius X, concessit ut dift secunda Novembris cujuslibet anni, Christifideles, confessi ac s. Communione refecti, quoties aliquam ecclesiam vel publicum aut semipublicum oratorium, defunctis suffragaturi visitaverint, ibique ad mentem Summi Pontificis oraverint, toties plenariara indulgentiam, animabus piacularibus flammis addictis tantum modo profuturam, lucrari valeant (A. A. S., t. VI, p. 378). Quodsi Commemoratio defunctorum, juxta rubricas, in aliani diem transferatur, indulgentia etiam transfertur (A. A. S., Deor. 13-14 Dec. 1916, t, IX, p. 179).

Ex concessionibus Pii X, die 27 Februarii et 2 Septembris 1907 (A. A. S. t. 40, p. 246-247 et p. 590-591) hac indulgentia gaudebant jam omnes ecclesias et universa publica oratoria tam monachorum quam monialium Ordinis S. Benedicti, nulla facta distinctione formae et coloris habitus vel familie. Item, uti jam supra dictum est, Christifideles numisma jubilare S. Benedicti habitualiter gestantes, hanc indulgentiam acquirere valent visitantes quamcumque ecclesiam vel publicum oratorium, si valetudinis causa vel impedimento clausa aut nimiae distantiae — scilicet unius saltem milliarii, — ecclesiam aut oratorium S. Benedicti adire nequeunt.

Hsec indulgentia benedictina differt ab indulgentia onmibus ecclesiis concessa :

1. potest lucrifieri pro vivis et pro defunctis.
2. semper remanet affixa diei secundae Novembris (cfr. A. S. S., t. 41, p. 54. Decr. 20 Nov. 1907).
Praedicta indulgentia acquiri valet etiam in oratoriis semipublicis tum monachorum tum sanctimonialium Ordinis S. Benedicti in favorem tantummodo communitatis religiosae necnon personarum in ipsa degentium. (A. S. S., t. 41, p. 50-51).

2. Indulgentice concedantur in honorem S. Stanislai Kostkoe.
a) Plenaria in die festo (13 Novembris) lucranda.
Conditiones :confessio, communio, visitatio sub qua preces.
b) Pro decem dominicis ante festum, quovis anni tempore cum licentia Ordinarii celebratum, 7 an. et 7 quad. indulgentia conceditur singula dominica. (Conditiones : visitatio ecclesiae in qua iiunt exercitia et preces ad mentem S. Pontificis).
c) Pro exercitio novendiali — ut supra pro conditionibus— 100 dierum indulgentia singula vice conceditur

Homo, natus de mulíere, brevi vivens témpore, replétur multis misériis. Qui quasi flos egrediétur et contéritur, et fugit velut umbra, et numquam in eódem statu pérmanet. Et dignum ducis super hujuscémodi aperíre óculos tuos, et addúcere eum tecum in judícium? Quis potest fácere mundum de immúndo concéptum sémine? Nonne tu qui solus es? Breves dies hóminis sunt, númerus ménsium ejus apud te est : constituísti términos ejus, qui præteríri non póterunt. Recéde páululum ab eo, ut quiéscat, donec optáta véniat, sicut mercenárii, dies ejus.


Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. And dost thou think it meet to open thine eyes upon such an one, and to bring him into judgment with thee? Who can bring a clean thing out of unclean seed? Can anyone do this except thee? Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee ; thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass : turn from him, and forbear, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his

4 years in vigil

Reactions 
Parishioners hold strong

"A week ago, St. Frances X. Cabrini in Scituate celebrated its four years in vigil. Or, as the church bulletin put it: 1,461 days; 35,064 hours; 2,103,840 minutes.

Four years is a long time. It's the time we spent in high school, or college. It's one of President Bush's interminable terms. It's how often the Olympics come around. It's longer than some marriages last. And it seems to be about the same length of time as this year's presidential campaign.

For four years, more than two million minutes, parishioners at St. Frances Cabrini have held a round-the-clock vigil to keep the Archdiocese of Boston from closing them down.

The archdiocese, as part of its reconfiguration plan, targeted the church for closing on Oct. 25, 2004. In fact, their people had changed the locks on the church. But one back door accidentally remained open, and parishioners began their occupation. They know if they leave, the archdiocese will return with new locks. The church is one of five in the archdiocese that remain in vigil, and is the only one on the South Shore."
