Who don’t in fact look too happy with the situation at all.
Not surprising, given what you read in the papers…
The tablet sez Veni, Creator Spiritus
One of the most widely used hymns in the Church, Veni, Creator Spiritus, is attributed to Rabanus Maurus (776-856). It is used at Vespers, Pentecost, Dedication of a Church, Confirmation, and Holy Orders and whenever the Holy Spirit is solemnly invoked. A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who recite it. A plenary indulgence is granted if it is recited on January 1st or on the feast of Pentecost.
Does that mean that the unfaithful get a plenary indulgence if they pick the right day, too? And what is a “plenary indulgence” anyway? Doesn’t sound too healthy to me…
