In this Year of Faith, the National Shrine of the Sacred Heart in Makati City is hereby declared as a Pilgrim Church. Having been declared as such; pilgrims, devotees and the faithful who piously visits the Shrine have the opportunity to avail of a Plenary Indulgence as special graces.
To acquire a Plenary Indulgence, it is necessary to fulfill the following three conditions: Sacramental Confession, Eucharistic Communion and Prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father.
It is most fitting that Holy Communion be received and the Prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father be said on the same day as the visit. The condition of praying for the intentions of the Holy Father is fully satisfied by reciting The Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be.
Come visit the National Shrine of the Sacred Heart as often as you can to obtain as many indulgences and Graces as possible. See you all there.
