AN INDULGENCE GRANTED BY POPE PIUS X
In reply to the following question: “Should we bow down or look up at the Elevation?” a Decree was published by the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences on May 18th, 1907, which shows what we should do.
An Indulgence of seven years and seven quarantines, each time, is granted to all the faithful, who, looking with faith, devotion, and love at the Sacred Host at the moment of the Elevation, say at the same time, the words, “MY LORD AND MY GOD“.
A further Plenary Indulgence may be gained once each week by those who, having heard Mass, daily as above, receive Holy Communion.
The first named Indulgence may also be gained by looking devoutly upon the Sacred Host whenever it is solemnly exposed, saying the aforesaid words.
