I do believe the first blessings that will probably accompany this Mass are matter for a plenary indulgence*.


*Under the usual conditions, bien sûr!

I don't think so.

Enchiridion of Indulgences issued on 29 June 1968 says:

# 43. First Mass of newly-ordained Priests (Prima Missa neosacerdotum)

A plenary indulgence is granted to a priest on the occasion of the first Mass he celebrates with some solemnity and to the faithful who devoutly assist at the same Mass.

Mr. Know-it-all,

There was a plenary indulgence for assisting at Canon's first Mass on Sunday. (He announced it from the pulpit before his sermon.)

Just thought you might want to know. :-)
