From a reader:
Regarding the Sabbatine Privilege, it is my understanding that person may meet the requirements by reciting the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary or, if given permission by their priest, saying the Rosary.
My question is may a person also fulfill gain this privilege by daily recitation of Divine Office (which I recite) or must it be the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary?
Since the Sabbatine privilege is no longer listed in the Enchiridion Indulgentiarum, and since all indulgences from previous times are explicitly abrogated by the current Enchiridion, we can safely conclude that the Sabbatine privilege has also been abrogated.
Some of you scratching your heads and asking, “But Father! But Father! What’s the Sabbatine privilege?”
In a nutshell:
The Sabbatine Privilege is a promise by our Blessed Mother that she would liberate from Purgatory, on the Saturday after their death, those souls who met the following conditions during their lives on earth. “Sabbatine” is an adjective deriving from Sábbato, the Latin word for Saturday.
