Papal Absolution
Question from Rita Landsberger on 4/19/2005:
United States

When our new Pope, Pope Benedict gave his first Papal blessing and absolution, was the absolution, plenary indulgence, valid for only the people present or for all those watching on tv also?

Answered on 4/26/2005:

It is valid like any blessing, for those present, as well as for all who watch or listen live by electronic means - provided in all cases the other conditions of a plenary indulgence are fulfilled (confession, communion, prayers for the pope, detachment from sin).
