Toties Quoties Indulgence (Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16)

The Brown Scapular

Toties Quoties Indulgence

Those who have been enrolled as members of the Carmelite Scapular Confraternity by legitimately delegated priests, and who carry on their person the Holy Scapular in the prescribed manner, can gain an Indulgence on the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16, as often as they shall (Toties Quoties) have visited a Carmelite church or, if these are lacking, a church where the Confraternity exists, or, if this is not possible, the local parish church.

The usual conditions for gaining the Plenary Indulgences apply:
(a) An interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin;
(b) Sacramental Confession (within the week before or after the indulgenced day);
(c) Holy Communion (either the day before, the feast day, or within the week after);
(d) Prayers for the Pope’s Intentions (at least one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be)
with each repeated visit.

Only one Plenary Indulgence per day may be acquired for oneself, but many may be acquired for the Poor Souls.

Scapular Instructions see pg 5 #3

A similar indulgence may be obtained on All Souls Day, Nov. 2nd, as often as one shall visit a cemetary or church and fulfill the usual conditions including the prayers for the Pope’s intentions with each visit.

Prayers for the Intentions of the Pope

The intentions of the Pope are not those of the present pope personally, but of four timeless intentions. The Raccolta, a collection of prayers and indulgences that used to be published by the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences explains this:

23. The Pope’s intention always includes the following objects:
i. The progress of the Faith and triumph of the Church.
ii. Peace and union among Christian Princes and Rulers.
iii. The conversion of sinners.
iv. The uprooting of heresy.

Thus, even if the present Pope’s monthly prayer intentions seem like ones we should not be praying for, we can still receive plenary indulgences because of the timeless intentions.
