The Pope has granted the gift of indulgences to young people, and to "all spiritually prepared believers", who will participate in the World Youth Day that will be held in Rio de Janeiro from 22 to 29 July 2013 on the theme "Go and make disciples of all nations" (Mt 29:19). With a decree signed by the major penitentiary Card. Manuel Monteiro De Castro and released today, Pope Francis grants the plenary indulgence, which "can be gained once a day under the usual conditions (sacramental Confession, Holy Communion and prayer for the Holy Father’s intentions) and can also be applied to the souls of the faithful departed, to the truly repentant and contrite faithful who will participate with devotion in the sacred rites and pious exercises that will take place in Rio de Janeiro. Even "legitimately impeded" believers will be able to receive the plenary indulgence provided that they "fulfil the usual spiritual and sacramental conditions, say the usual prayers and show filial submission to the Roman Pontiff by participating spiritually in the sacred functions on the established days, while these events and pious exercises are broadcast live on television and radio or, always with the same devotion, through the new social communications media".
