As I read this stipulation that was posted here months ago, is it possible to obtain a plenary even while one’s Bishop has said there is no obligation yet to physically attend mass? Here is the citation:
- the faithful suffering from coronavirus and subject to quarantine by order of the health authority in hospitals or in their own homes, with a spirit detached from any sin, can gain the plenary indulgence if they “unite spiritually through the media to the celebration of Holy Mass - (and other devotions).
We are now permitted to attend Mass in church, with limits restricting numbers of those attending. I usually go daily, but on Friday, our priest does not celebrate. I also attend the vigil mass on Sunday evening, but no priest in my diocese celebrates Saturday morning Mass.
May I obtain a plenary when uniting to Mass through the media on Fridays and Saturday mornings, since physical attendance is not possible?
