Quick texts to your spiritual friends
A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who, in the performance of their
duties and in bearing the trials of life, raise their mind with humble
confidence to God, adding even if only mentally some pious invocation.
This first grant is intended to serve as an incentive to the faithful to put
into practice the commandment of Christ that “they must always pray and not lose
heart” and at the same time as a reminder so to perform their respective duties
as to preserve and strengthen their union with Christ.
