Pope Offers Indulgences with Trip to Land of Luther

Reuters is reporting that Pope Benedict has agreed to allow "special indulgences" in connection with his trip to Cologne for World Youth Day.

Plenary indulgences will be granted to people who are not in a state of sin and participate "attentively and with devotion" to World Day of Youth events in Germany, while those who do not go to Cologne may receive partial indulgences by praying fervently, while the Pope is in Germany, to ask God to help young people strengthen their faith.
