Indulgences valid?


Normally to gain a pleanary indulgence one is required to make a good confession, receive the eucharist, and pray for the intentions of the Pope. When there is no Pope, like today, can one still gain a pleanary indulgence?


Try this:


The Pope’s intentions have already been published, so you can pray for those intentions during the interregnum.
