For the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal, Pope Francis has granted a plenary indulgence opportunity throughout the entire anniversary year, which began Nov. 27, 2016, and will end Nov. 26, 2017.
Fatima, Portugal (CNA/EWTN News) - The rector of the Fatima Shrine in Portugal, André Pereira, explained to CNA that the plenary indulgence can be obtained during the entire Jubilee Year.
