The Epistle of St. Jude
Exposition by Rev. John MacEvilly, Bishop of Tuam 1891
To encourage the reading of Holy Scripture among Catholics, Pope Leo XIII. has granted the following indulgence :
Our most holy Lord Leo P. P. XIII., in an audience granted to the undersigned Cardinal Prefect of the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences and Sacred Relics, on the 13th day of December, 1898, kindly granted an indulgence of three hundred days, once every day, to all the Faithful of Christ who should, for at least one quarter of an hour, piously and devoutly read the Holy Gospel,* provided they read an edition that has been approved by legitimate authority. To those who thus read every day for a month a plenary indulgence is conceded once a month, on any day that, having approached worthily the holy Sacraments of Confession and Communion, they pour forth prayers to God for the intentions of His Holiness. These indulgences His Holiness has declared may be offered for the souls detained in the fire of purgatory.
* The word Gospel in this indulgence stands
for any part of the New Testament.
