...and the Divine Mercy devotion has been promoted in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, DESPITE the whining of various Diocesan priests that "it is inappropriate for the season of Easter." Man, Abp. Dolan has a lot of work to do...
Arthur, the literature regarding DMSunday is unclear and has caused a bit of a debate around my home. It was always my understanding that under the usual conditions, etc., etc., one can obtain a partial or plenary indulgence, BUT that such indulgence is applied through God's mercy to whatever soul (in Purgatory) He designates.
OTOH, the literature can be read to indicate that the DM plenary can be applied to oneself or to one's designee.
How do you read this??

The faithful can gain indulgences for themselves or apply them to the dead.
