Hi, guys —

I have a question on the norms for gaining a Plenary Indulgence. I've heard that after one confesses, he has twenty days to gain one or more Plenary Indulgences.

I've also heard eight days.

  • I was wondering which is correct?

Thank you,

Angelo

If I have read the Vatican reply appropriately:

twenty days
