According to Zenit, the Vatican is also offering a plenary indulgence for all the faithful during this year:
For the faithful, a plenary indulgence can be obtained on the opening and closing days of the Year for Priests, on the 150th anniversary of the death of St. Jean-Marie Vianney, on the first Thursday of the month, or on any other day established by the ordinaries of particular places for the good of the faithful.
To obtain the indulgence the faithful must attend Mass in an oratory or Church and offer prayers to "Jesus Christ, supreme and eternal Priest, for the priests of the Church, or perform any good work to sanctify and mould them to his heart."
The conditions for the faithful for earning a plenary indulgence are to have gone to confession and prayed for the intentions of the Pope.
June is usually a time of priestly jubilees and ordinations. This special year provides a great opportunity to show gratitude for the dedicated ministry of so many wonderful priests in our lives. Here at Pauline Books & Media, we have every kind of gift idea to help you say "thank you."

Since May is a month devoted to Mary, and in light of yesterday's feast day, you may be interested in one of our newer titles at Pauline Books & Media. The Shepherds of Fátima draws from historical sources and eyewitness accounts to tell the captivating tale of Mary’s appearances at Fátima, Portugal, in 1917. The author, Fr. Fernando Silva, leads readers into the story by exploring the lives and experiences of the three shepherd children—Lucia dos Santos and her cousins, Blessed Jacinta Marto and Blessed Francisco Marto. This well-researched account reads like a novel; you don't want to miss out on such a great read!
Paperback, 256 pages (with photos included), $19.95

West is the author of our best-selling book, Theology of the Body Explained. In this book he masterfully explores John Paul's thought and Catholic teaching on love and sexuality. As he explains in his interview with Nightline: "How do we live our sexuality in a way that points us to ultimate love and ultimate happiness and ultimate fulfillment?" As millions of people have discovered, the Theology of the Body provides such a blueprint.
We have a growing selection of publications on the Theology of the Body, including John Paul's own original catechesis, Man and Woman He Created Them. Please call or come in to our Center to see the many available resources on this subject.
