II. A Partial Indulgence, of 3 years to all the Faithful, as often as they devote themselves for the above mentioned space of time to teaching or learning Christian Doctrine,-(Pius .XI, Decretum, March 12, 1930; S.P. Ap., May 36, 1949.)

Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
