Indulgences granted by Pope Benedict XVI for the Golden

Jubilee Year of St. Michael's Abbey of the Norbertine Fathers

15 August 2011 ~ 29 September 2012

OUR HOLY FATHER POPE BENEDICT XVI through his Apostolic Penitentiary in Rome has made a

generous grant of Indulgences on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of St. Michael's Abbey of the Norbertine

Fathers. This is a great gift from the spiritual treasury of the Church, by the power the keys of the kingdom

of heaven given to St Peter and his successors. This apostolic gift is intended to increase the fervor of

the Christian life among the faithful by intensifying their acts of prayer, charity and penance for the living

and the dead. These Indulgences are both Plenary and Partial. They all may be gained for oneself or for the

faithful detained in Purgatory. It is especially praiseworthy to help the departed in this way. An indulgence

is not the forgiveness of sin, but a remission of the temporal punishment due to sin. It is based on the law of

satisfaction taught by the Lord in the Holy Gospels, and on the union of the members of the Church in the One Body of Christ by

their sharing of spiritual gifts and bearing each other's burdens.


These are gained under the customary conditions of Holy Communion, Sacramental Confession within at least 20 days before

or after the work, and prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father. Those who receive communion at least five days a week

and confess at least every few weeks fulfill the sacramental conditions and do not need to make a special communion or confession.

Any prayers may be said for the Pope, but the Lord's Prayer and a Hail Mary suffice. There must also be freedom from any

deliberate attachment to sin, even venial, and this means simply the contrition and purpose of amendment sufficient to confess

these sins.

A plenary indulgence may only be gained once a day, but when it is not gained fully, a partial indulgence is still always gained, so

one may still perform several acts a day which are ordinarily enriched with a plenary indulgence, since they gain at least a partial

indulgence. This is important especially when we want to apply these greater indulgences to the departed.

The special Plenary Jubilee Indulgences granted in favor of St. Michael's Abbey are as follows:

For a devout pilgrimage to the abbey Church on the solemnities of the Assumption (August 15 th ) and of St. Michael (September

29 th ) of the years 2011 and 2012. The faithful should visit the abbey church and either assist at some public prayer of the Mass or

Liturgy of the Hours, or at least spend some time there in devout reflection, in any case concluding their time with the Lord's

Prayer, the Creed, and an invocation to Our Lady and St. Michael. This pilgrimage may be made individually or together with

others and may be made from noon of the preceding day (August 14 th or September 28 th )and throughout the day of the solemnity

itself. In addition, the common discipline of the Church grants this same indulgence for the faithful who visit the abbey Church on

the solemnity of its Dedication (September 20 th ) and of St. Norbert (June 6 th ).

For visiting on any day the cemetery where the founding confreres of St. Michael's are buried,spending some time there in devout

considerations, and concluding their visit in aid of the departed with the Lord's Prayer, the Creed and an invocation to Our

Lady and St. Michael. This visit may be made on any day of the Jubilee from August 15 th 2011 until September 29 th 2012. This

visit may be made on as many days as the faithful desire. The cemetery is Ascension Cemetery at 24754 Trabuco Road in Lake


For performing any work of mercy for those in need for at least an hour in a spirit of gratitude for the innumerable graces

granted to St. Michael's Abbey over the years, concluding the merciful work with the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, and an invocation

to Our Lady and St. Michael. This work does not have to be sponsored by the abbey, it can be any work of mercy. If any of the

conditions of this indulgence are not met, for example, on account of a shorter time or the omission of the prayers, there is still a

partial indulgence granted by general discipline of the Church.

Anyone who is ill or infirm on account of age, or who for some other weighty reason cannot go to the abbey church or cemetery

may gain the plenary indulgence all the same, by uniting their intention with those who can go, offering their sufferings and trials

to God through Our Lady. They should fulfill the general conditions given above as soon as they are able, and pray the Our Father,

the Creed and an invocation to Our Lady and St. Michael.


For each and every visit to the abbey church to pray or the cemetery to aid the departed with at least a contrite heart, if even the

conditions for the plenary, indulgence cannot be fulfilled.

The Epiphany


ecalling the deeds performed

by the Savior of the human

race brings us great profit,

dearly-if what we venerate as something

believed we also take on to be

imitated. In the arrangement of

Christ’s mysteries, there are both effects

of grace and influence from doctrine,

for we follow in the example of

his works the one whom we acknowledge

in the spirit of faith. Those very

first things which the Son of God experienced

in being born of his Virgin

Mother set us on the road to progress

in holiness.

There appear to those of an upright heart in one and the

same Person both human lowliness and divine majesty.

Whom the cradle shows to be an Infant, heaven and heavenly

things call their Maker. That Boy with a small body

is Lord and Ruler of the world. He who is encompassed

by no limits is held in the arms of his Mother. But it is in

these things that the healing of our wounds and the raising

up of our abasement rest, for, unless such diversity had

together as one, human nature could not be reconciled to


Our remedies, then, have established for us a rule of living,

and a pattern has been given for our conduct, a pattern

from which medicine can be applied to the dead. Not

inappropriately, when the brightness of the new star had

led three wise men to worship Jesus, they did not see him

ruling over demons, not raising the dead, not restoring

sight to the blind or mobility to the lame or speech to the

dumb, nor in any action of divine power. They saw him,

rather, as a Child – silent, at rest, placed in the care of his

Mother-in a situation where there appeared no indication

of power.

From this lowliness, however, a great miracle was presented.

Consequently, the mere sight of that sacred Infancy

to which God the Son of God had adapted himself

was bringing to their eyes a preaching that would be imparted

to their ears. What the sound of his voice was not

yet presenting, the activity of sight was teaching them.

For the entire victory of the Savior, the one that overcame

the devil and the world began in humility and ended in



Saint Leo the Great (†461) reigned as pope from 440 to 461.

He is a Doctor of the Church.

La Epifanía del Señor



los hechos realizados

por el Salvador de la raza humana

nos trae grandes beneficios, afectuosamente

si lo que veneramos como

algo que creemos, también debe ser imitado.

En la disposición de los misterios

de Jesucristo, hay dos efectos de la gracia

e influencia de la doctrina, pues seguimos

el ejemplo de sus obras en quien reconocemos

el espíritu de la fe. Esas primeras

cosas del Hijo de Dios experimentado en

el nacimiento de su Madre Virginal nos

puso en el camino hacia la santidad.

Parece ser que aquellos de un corazón

recto en uno y la misma Persona

tanto la humildad humana y divina majestad. Quien la

cuna muestra a un Infante, el cielo y las cosas celestiales

llaman a su Creador. Ese Niño con un cuerpo pequeño es

el Señor y Rey del mundo. El quien esta rodeado por no

limites es tomado en los brazos de su Madre. Pero es en

estas cosas que nuestras heridas son sanadas y nuestra

humillación es elevada a descansar, ya que, a menos que

tal adversidad junta sea una sola, la naturaleza humana no

podría ser reconciliada con Dios.

Nuestros remedios, entonces, se han establecido como

una regla de vida, y un patrón se ha dado para nuestra

conducta, un patrón en donde la medicina puede aplicarse

a los muertos. No es inapropiado, cuando el resplandor

de la nueva estrella que guió a los tres reyes magos a adorar

a Jesús, no lo vieron reinar sobre los demonios, ni

resucitar a los muertos, ni devolver la vista a los ciegos o

movilidad a los cojos o hablar a los mudos, ni en la acción

del poder divino. Mas bien lo vieron como un Niño – en

silencio, en reposo, bajo el cuidado de su Madre-en una

situación en la que no aparece ningún indicio de poder.

Desde su humildad, sin embargo, un gran milagro fue

presentado. En consecuencia, la mera visión de la sagrada

Infancia la que Dios el Hijo de Dios adapto para si mismo

trajo ante sus ojos una predicación que seria impartida a

sus oídos. El sonido de su voz todavía no estaba presente,

la actividad de la vista les estaba enseñando. Por la completa

victoria del Salvador, el que venció al diablo y el

mundo comenzó en humildad y terminó en humildad.

God has appeared – as a

child. It is in this guise that he

pits himself against all violence

and brings a message

that is peace. At this hour,

when the world is continually

threatened by violence in so

many places and in so many

different ways, when over

and over again there are oppressors’ rods and bloodstained

cloaks, we cry out to the Lord: O mighty God, you have

appeared as a child and you have revealed yourself to us

as the One who loves us, the One through whom love will

triumph. And you have shown us that we must be peacemakers

with you. ~ Pope Benedict XVI, Homily for
