The Augustinian manual, comprising, a 'practical prayer book', by an Augustinian father

by Augustinian manual

Excerpt:

(h) Confession, and visit to an Augustinian Cnurch or Altar of the Confraternity.

(j) No other condition except the mere performance of the devotion in question.

{£) Special conditions not enumerated above, see "Augustinian Manual," or Works on Indulgences.

For instance, to learn what is meant by 3 (g) on January 1st in the Calendar, turn at once to Table I, page33, and you learn that this figure 3 denotes that a Plenary Indulgence may be gained by all the Faithful in Ireland on that day; then, by looking at the List of Conditions, page 32, you can at once find ».g), which in turn points out that the conditions on which that indulgence is granted are Confession, Communion, and a visit any public Church or Oratory.

Again, the figure 4, on the same day, denotes that the members of the Confraternity of the Holy and Immaculate Heart of Mary can also gain a Plenary Indulgence on January 1st; while the letter (a), page 30, signifies that the conditions to bo fulfilled are the more usual ones of Confession, Communion. and prayers for the Church or intentions of the Pope.

The few partial indulgences marked in the Calendar appertain to the Confraternity of SS. Augustine and Monica, and are easily distinguishable from the Plenary by the signs of the former being wholly enclosed in a parenthesis, thus ( ); but for the immense number of partial indulgences obtainable by the Cinctured of our Order they must consult Tables II. and V., especially the latter.

2. The large Maltese »$< placed immediately after the date of the month signifies a Holy Day of Obligation, at least in Ireland. The Sundays, however, and movable Feasts cannot, of course, be thus marked in a Fixed Calendar.

3. On the following days—February 10, 21, 26, and 27 ; March 6, 14, 15, 16, 26, 20, 30, and 31; April 10, 12, 15, 16, 19, and 27; May 21, 23, 28, and 29; August 25; September 7; October 30; November 28 and 29; December 1, 17, 19, 20, 22, and 23—will be found chronicled the names of some of the many blessed of our Order not canonically entered on the Bead Roll of the Church; consequently on these no special partial indulgences will be found registered. They have been placed there to fill up the vacant days of the Roman Calendar, a process we could continue were all the days of the year vacant, thanks to our good God.

4. Only the Plenary Indulgences attached to the more popular devotions in the Church have been entered on the Calendar, and space would not admit of registering the indulgences belonging to all the Religious Orders.

5. The Lenten days are noticed at the end of the months of February and March, and the great festivals of Paschal time at the end of the month of April.

6. The Fast Days are not marked on the Perpetual Calendar, but will be found tabulated on page 3.

7. The three Plenary Indulgences marked 1 (k) on the Fourth Sundayare granted on the following conditions :—(i)Confession and presence at the Procession in the evening; (2) Confession, Communion at the Mass of the Confraternity, and prayer for the Church during the Procession; (3) same as (2), only the Communion may be anywhere. And the General Faithful gain the Plenary Indulgence marked 2(b) by Confession, Communion, prayers for the Pope, and a visit to an Augustinian church in Ireland.
