All the faithful are invited by Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, President of the USCCB, to join in the recitation of the Litany of the Sacred Heart on Good Friday, which, by a special grant from the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See for those who pray for the end of the pandemic, offers a plenary indulgence.

To receive this indulgence, a member of the faithful would need to:

  • pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart on Good Friday
  • be truly repentant of any sins they have committed and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (at the earliest opportunity)
  • pray for the Holy Father’s intentions.

As an aid to this call to prayer, please find a prayer card of the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, as well as a promotional flyer for the occasion:
