Just a reminder for everyone that each time you devotedly read the Bible for at least half-an-hour, you gain plenary indulgence, either for a soul in Purgatory or for yourself (you decide who you offer it to).

The person needs to be in a state of grace, having confessed at least 8 days before or after the reading and, at the end, say an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for the intentions of the Pope. That's all that it's needed.

More info on other ways to gain plenary indulgences:

So, this would be "killing two birds with one stone".

You also need to have received Communion recently, and be free from attachment to even venial sin. Also, a plenary indulgence can be gained only once per day.

I'm changing this Bible reading project from the whole Bible in a year, to just the New Testament in a year. This requires less time: one NT chapter per day, Monday thru Friday. Use the weekends to catch up if you get behind. Of course, if you have the time and desire, you can add 4 to 5 chapters of the OT per weekday to read the whole Bible. For myself, I'm reading only the NT over the next year.

If you are joining us late, you can easily catch up by reading just two NT chapters per day, every day.

There are 260 chapters in the NT, and there are 260 weekdays in 52 weeks.

Default Thanks for Bible read prompting

Ron
Thanks for your prompting last March 15, to read the Bible.
I completed a straight through read today and never felt it to be a task.
Indeed, I got so much out of it. I had never gone about it this way before. Without your prompting I would not have embarked upon it.
Having done it, I would recommend it to everyone.

I was blessed to be able to read every word of the bible before the Blessed Sacrament, and 99% of the time was with the Sacrament Exposed.

thanks for the push Ron.
God bless

Good work!

Reading the Bible is a good preparation for the Warning.

There is also a plenary indulgence available, under the usual conditions.
