I had asked Father Serpa this question but he misunderstood my question. So I am asking it in these forums to see if I can get clear answer to my question.
In old prayerbooks where the indulgences given were a number of days or years the indulgence was always partial according to my understanding. (Please correct me if I am wrong). Now that indulgences are strictly plenary and partial I am wondering whether these old prayers still can carry an indulgence (not in days but plenary and partial as it is now)?
I find the prayers in the older prayerbooks much more edifying and dignified in language that lifts up the soul to Our Lord. If I should pray these old prayers from old prayer books do they carry with them any indulgence at all or have the indulgences for these prayers been removed totally?
I hope that I am making myself understood because Father Serpa thought that I wanted to pray all of these old prayerbook prayers just to get a bunch of indulgences and that is definitely not the intention behind my question. I will pray these prayers regardless as they bring my soul such warmth and goodness… I am just curious to know whether or not they now carry an indulgence that is plenary or partial.
Thank you for your time and responses.
