The Apostolic Penitentiary, at the request of the archbishop of Palermo, Corrado Lorefice, granted on the occasion of the celebratory year in memory of the martyrdom in odium fidei of Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi (killed 30 years ago by the mafia on 15 September 1993), «the Papal blessing with annexed plenary indulgence to the faithful and pilgrims who will visit the places of Blessed Puglisi in 2023″. Indicated the places and provisions for “gaining a plenary indulgence”, explains the Diocese of Palermo: sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion and prayer according to the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff.

The places identified are the Cathedral of Palermo where the mortal remains of Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi rest, the parish of San Gaetano in the Brancaccio district, the «Padre Nostro» reception center founded by Blessed Puglisi with headquarters in via Brancaccio 210, the Diocesan Vocation Center with headquarters in via Matteo Bonello 2, the Parish of Maria Santissima Immacolata Concezione di Godrano, the house (today «Casa Museo Puglisi”) where the Blessed lived and in front of which he was killed, in Piazzetta Beato Padre Puglisi 5, in Palermo. The elderly, the infirm, and all those who are unable to leave the house for a serious reason, «can equally obtain the full Indulgence by cultivating the intention of fulfilling, as soon as possible, the three usual conditions and if they join spiritually in the celebrations in memory of the Blessed Puglisi provided for during the year, offering to God the sufferings connected with their condition”. The Decree of the Apostolic Penitentiary was issued last 13 December, Dominicae Incarnationis, signed by Cardinal Mauro Piacenza, Major Penitentiary.
