Our Lady of the Angels – Portiuncula Indulgence
The year was 1216. A little man called Francis went to Pope Honorius III, and asked for a special dispensation to help
people in their search for salvation. This is the origin of the Portiuncula Indulgence, also called the “Pardon of Assisi.”
Pope Francis will visit The Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels in Assisi on the occasion of the 800th anniversary of the
“Pardon of Assisi,” the plenary indulgence.
On August 2 we will celebrate The Feast of Our Lady of the Angels of Portiuncula.
The following is an excerpt from “The Major Life of St. Francis by St. Bonaventure:”
“The Portiuncula was an old church dedicated to the Virgin Mother of God which was abandoned. Francis had great
devotion to the Queen of the world and when he saw that the church was deserted, he began to live there constantly in
order to repair it. He heard that the Angels often visited it, so that it was called Saint Mary of the Angels, and he decided
to stay there permanently out of reverence for the angels and love for the Mother of Christ.
He loved this spot more than any other in the world. It was here he began his religious life in a very small way; it is here
he came to a happy end. When he was dying, he commended this spot above all others to the friars, because it was most
dear to the Blessed Virgin.
This was the place where Saint Francis founded his Order by divine inspiration and it was divine providence which led
him to repair three churches before he founded the Order and began to preach the Gospel.
This meant that he progressed from material things to more spiritual achievements, from lesser to greater, in due order,
and it gave a prophetic indication of what he would accomplish later.
As he was living there by the church of Our Lady, Francis prayed to her who had conceived the Word, full of grace and
truth, begging her insistently and with tears to become his advocate. Then he was granted the true spirit of the Gospel by
the intercession of the Mother of mercy and he brought it to fruition.
He embraced the Mother of Our Lord Jesus with indescribable love because, as he said, it was she who made the Lord
of majesty our brother, and through her we found mercy. After Christ, he put all his trust in her and took her as his
patroness for himself and his friars."
On this day we can receive the Portiuncula Indulgence. The Portiuncula Indulgence is the first plenary indulgence that
was ever granted in the Church. The person who gains the Portiuncula Indulgence is freed from all temporal
punishments due to sin and becomes as pure as after holy baptism. This can be offered for oneself or for someone
A plenary indulgence is available to anyone who will:
1. Receive sacramental confession (8 days before or after)
2. Receive the Holy Eucharist at Holy Mass on August 2nd
3. Enter church with a contrite heart, pray the Our Father, Apostles Creed, and a prayer of his/her own choosing
for the intentions of the Pope.
To help us celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Angels, our Secular Franciscan Fraternity will have Mass
celebrated on August 2 at 5:00 PM in our Church. We welcome and encourage all to attend this Mass and take
the opportunity to receive the Portiuncula Indulgence.
Living Rosary:
August 15 is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Since it falls on a Monday this year, it is
not a holy day of obligation. To help us celebrate the Assumption, the Columbiettes will be praying the Living Rosary at
7:00 PM in church. Those participating in the living Rosary will stand in the church in the form of a rosary. As each
recites the Our Father, Hail Mary or Glory Be a candle will be lit. We encourage all to attend and participate in the
Living Rosary. We will need individuals to say one of the prayers. As you enter church that night, one of the
Columbiettes will instruct you which prayer to say and where to stand.
Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles – La Indulgencia de la Porciúncula
Era el año 1216. Un hombre pequeño llamado Francisco fue a ver al Papa Honorio III y le pidió una dispensa especial
para ayudar a las personas en su búsqueda de la salvación. Así se originó la Indulgencia de la Porciúncula, también llamada el “Perdón de Asís.” El Papa Francisco visitará la Basílica de Santa María de los Ángeles en la ocasión de los 800
años la indulgencia plenaria del “Perdón de Asís.”
El 2 de agosto celebrará la Fiesta de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles de la Porciúncula.
El siguiente pasaje está tomado de la Leyenda Mayor de San Francisco (Legenda Maior), por San Buenaventura.
“La Porciúncula era una antigua iglesia dedicada a la Virgen Madre de Dios, que fue abandonada. Francisco tenía
gran devoción a la reina del mundo y cuando vio que la iglesia estaba desierta, empezó a vivir allí constantemente con
el fin de repararla. Escuchó que los Ángeles visitaban a menudo, por lo que se llamaba Santa María de los Ángeles, y
decidió quedarse allí permanentemente en reverencia a los ángeles y por amor a la madre de Cristo.
Amaba este lugar más que cualquier otro en el mundo. Fue aquí que él comenzó su vida religiosa de forma muy pequeña; es aquí que vino a un final feliz. Cuando se estaba muriendo, le recomendó este lugar sobre todos otros a los frailes,
porque era el más querido por la Santísima Virgen.
Este fue el lugar donde San Francisco fundó su orden por inspiración divina y fue la Divina Providencia la que lo llevó
a reparar tres iglesias antes de fundar su orden y de comenzar a predicar el Evangelio.
Esto nos demuestra que él progresó de cosas materiales a logros más espirituales, de menor a mayor, en debido orden y
dio una indicación profética de lo que él lograría más adelante.
Como vivía cerca de la iglesia de Nuestra Señora, Francisco le rezó a ella, la que había concebido al Verbo, lleno de
gracia y de verdad, rogándole con insistencia y con lágrimas para que se convirtiera en su defensor. Luego se le concedió el verdadero espíritu del Evangelio por la intercesión de la madre de la misericordia y él lo hizo dar fruto.
Abrazó a la madre de nuestro Señor Jesús con un amor indescriptible porque, como dijo, fue ella la que hizo al Señor de
la majestad nuestro hermano, y a través de ella encontramos misericordia. Después de Cristo, él puso toda su confianza
en ella y la tomó como su patrona para él y sus frailes."
Ese día podemos recibir la Indulgencia de la Porciúncula. La Indulgencia de la Porciúncula fue la primera indulgencia
concedida por la iglesia. La persona que recibe la Indulgencia de la Porciúncula queda liberada de todo castigo temporal
por sus pecados y queda tan pura como después del bautismo. Esto se puede ofrecer por uno mismo o por un ser querido.
La indulgencia plenaria se le concede a todo el que:
Recibe el sacramento de la confesión (8 días antes o después.
Recibe la Eucaristía durante la misa el 2 de agosto.
Entra en la iglesia con un corazón arrepentido, reza un Padre Nuestro, el Credo de los Apóstoles, y dice una oración
por las intenciones del Papa.
Para ayudarnos a celebrar la fiesta de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles, nuestra Fraternidad de Franciscanos laicos
tendré una misa a las 5 p.m. el día 2 de agosto en nuestra iglesia. Invitamos a todos a asistir a esta misa y aprovechar la oportunidad de recibir la Indulgencia de la Porciúncula.
Rosario Viviente:
El 15 de agosto celebramos la Solemnidad de la Asunción de la Santa Virgen María. Como que este año cae en un día
lunes no hay obligación de asistir a Misa. Para celebrar la Asunción, las Columbiettes rezarán un rosario viviente a las
7:00 p.m. en la Iglesia. Los que participen en el rosario viviente se pararán en la iglesia formando un rosario. A medida
que recitan un Padre Nuestro o un Ave María o el Gloria, encenderán una vela. Animamos a todos a asistir y participar
en el Rosario Viviente. Necesitamos voluntarios para decir las oraciones. Al entrar en la iglesia esa noche, una de las
Columbiettes les dirán que oración debe decir y dónde se debe de parar.
