The Truth About Indulgences W/ Fr. Gregory Pine

Incorporating indulgences -

I feel like this metaphor might be getting away from me. Back to basics. The following are the indulgences available to Catholics as of the Manual of Indulgences. For an expanded list of indulgences, and more details about conditions and specific actions required, and the full text of prayers, consult the book or ebook or the google books version.

It features the all the feasts and fasts of the Universal Calendar and then some, illustrated with images featuring the traditional Catholic monthly devotions. You can keep track of the feasts and fasts and seasons of the Catholic year, and be reminded to focus your prayer on a different aspect of our faith each month.

As the Church year begins with December, so does this calendar. You get December through December , thirteen months. Available for purchase here. Coupon codes are available from the publisher here. If my phone is going to be the first thing I look at when I wake up and the last thing I look at before I go to sleep, it might as well direct my thoughts to God and the monthly devotions recommended to us by the Catholic Church!

The images are also high resolution enough to be cropped and printed as 5×7, 10×13, or 12×18 prints. They are available here.

Very interesting! But I think you mean "enchiridion," not "enchidrion. Hmph for autocorrect if it doesn't catch common words like "enchiridion. Stupid question from a brand-new Catholic — do we "assign" who our indulgence is for? Excellent question! We definitely can ask that the indulgence be applied to a particular soul but not someone who is living.

If that soul doesn't need it on account of already being in heaven yay! or being, um, past help boo God will apply it to a different soul in need.

Thanks for continuing to engage on this topic. There is so much mis-information. I think it was Scott Hahn who described it as pulling a nail out of a piece of wood. The wood is still damaged from the nail there temporal consequences due to sin.

When I think of sin as wounding, reparation and indulgences make perfect sense. My priest describes purgatory as like detox from our sins, also makes perfect sense to me.

I have been wondering, does one plenary indulgence forgive all damage from all sins of a person, or all damage from one sin?

Building on your example, what if the child broke a vase and then later in the day broke a window — would a plenary indulgence be equivalent to the neighborhood kids paying for both the vase and window, while a partial indulgence would only be for one or the other?

Hope I'm not being too confusing! This is so helpful and thorough, Kendra! Thank you so much! I also really appreciated your post on Ember Days. I had the blessing of meeting you and your beautiful family this past summer for just a moment in Yellowstone at Mammoth Springs.

I have followed your blog for several years now, and it has helped me greatly in living out my Catholic faith in our home with enthusiasm. Thank you so much for your faith, and for sharing it with all of us!

I love indulgences! It was always my favorite lesson when I taught Catechism. When my husband and I found out that you get a plenary indulgence for saying the Rosary with your family under the usual conditions we started adding a prayer to our family Rosary for "Detachment from all sin, mortal or venial.

My husband's goal is to make " new friends every year" that is, souls in purgatory who benefitted from our plenary indulgences. Can you imagine all the intercession you would have going for you if a bunch of saints had you to thank for getting them out of purgatory?

Well, Kendra, I've missed hearing from you for the last year, and now you're back with quite the bang! Catholics believe that there are two sources of revelation that make up the entire deposit of faith: Sacred Scripture, and Sacred Tradition.

We receive Tradition, handed down through the teaching authority of the magisterium. Kendra, this is the most concise explanation of this topic I have ever run across. I keep getting hung up on the phrase "free of all attachment to sin even Venial sin". I can say a prayer or affirmation to that affect because we all know we will sin in the future so we will never be free from all attachment to sin.

I guess "Catch 22" circles my head on this one. Can you please comment. We all sin, and more often than not, we have have habitual sins that we find ourselves committing and confessing over and over again.

When we make a good confession, we resolve to never commit those sins again. My understanding is that attachment to sin means that you not only commit the sin again but you have a love for the sin. Even this kind of sin can be conquered though!

A good spiritual director, receiving partial indulgences, many confessions, frequent reception of the Eucharist if the sin is venial or daily acts of spiritual communion if the sin is mortal can strengthen us to root out attachment to sin!

Is a plenary indulgence only granted on certain days? Gain you gain one any day of the year under the conditions? Yes, there are a few general grants of indulgence, for instance a family rosary, that are available according to the usual conditions any day of the year.

A priest gave me a very similar answer as yours above. If you are sincere in this endeavor God will know it even though you might regress from time to time. And on that basis a plenary indulgence doesn't sound so distant and unreachable. Good Morning Again Kendra, on a related matter to indulgences, I have always interpreted "Good Works" as the fulfillment of my daily duties in life in a responsible way.

I would like your take on this and if there is a deeper meaning to "Good Works" that my simplistic approach has overlooked. I would also like your take on what constitutes "Penances". I for one still do not eat meat on all Fridays which kind of dates me, so I consider that to be a "Penances that I can offer up to the Lord and Blessed Virgin for the souls in purgatory.

Am I interpreting this correctly? I have a similar approach to yours. I think "good works" is understood to include prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, in addition to the responsible fulfillment of one's daily duties.

And "penances" for us includes Friday abstinence from meat, but also the seeking out of other small mortifications, like eating more of foods we don't prefer and less of those we do, choosing to do least favorite tasks first, etc.

Hi Kendra again. It's been awhile but I have another question and you really seem to always make a lot of sense to me, something that is rare in this life. SO, I have carried a brown scapular that I actually received in Catholic grade school, a very long time ago, my entire life even through Vietnam.

During the Fatima anniversary which I didn't even know was going on, I went to mass one Thursday morning which was normal and a group of nuns? were there handing out new scapulars so I took one and at the end of mass the priest blessed them and I went on my way.

To fast forward do I actually have to wear this scapular or can I just carry it in my wallet? I can't believe the Virgin Mother would write me off on a "technicality" if I died and it was in my wallet rather than around my neck.

I was a "fallen away Catholic" for 30 years and have a lot of ground to make up. Thanks for all you do for us. Hey Philip!

I agree that the Virgin Mother would NOT write you off on a technicality! The brown scapular is not a magic talisman, it's a sacramental, which means that when we devoutly use it, it helps dispose us to better receive the graces of the sacraments.

However, there are requirements for this particular sacramental, which include wearing it always except when bathing.

It is meant to be a miniature version of the Carmelite habit, which is worn always by the Carmelites. But the brown scapular is just one pious devotion among many. If the requirements of the brown scapular don't work for your life, then you can always look for a different devotion.

There's the Divine Mercy devotion, which usually involves saying the Divine Mercy chaplet at 3pm, there's a devotion to the Sacred Heart, which usually involves Mass on the first Friday of the month, or devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the first Saturday of the month.

There's the Rosary, of course. My husband carries a 1 inch crucifix in his pocket as a sacramental. I think it's wonderful that you are in this time of searching! I'm sure Our Lady will help you find what is right for you, so she can lead you to her son.

Hi Kendra…another question — I read the Catholic church teaches if you aren't a Catholic you will cannot go to heaven. If that is true I will accept it but I wonder about people like Billy Graham assuming he has lived the life portrayed.

I guess I should really ask a priest but you are more convenient and quicker to access. These need not be gained for the person doing the pious action, but may be heroically offered up in loving solidarity for others, such as those holy souls in Purgatory who by their condition have no ability to gain any indulgence themselves.

None of this contradicts the historic Christian truths regarding Grace, or the impossibility of earning salvation through works. Purgatory is not about salvation: we must be saved in order to go through it. Meanwhile, any pious action we do to avoid it can only happen through our receiving the undeserved Grace of God — that divine life He shares with us that makes us holy.

Only through this through faith, including prayer and the Sacraments, are we enabled to live a Christian life, including those actions to which the Church has attached the remission of the temporal punishment for our sin.

When we appreciate the full dire truths about the consequences of our sin, and the nature of what God has done for us so that we might be rid of them, we may not only defend but rejoice in the reality of indulgences, and joyously endeavour to incorporate them into our spiritual lives.

It was because he wanted to challenge the doctrine and practice of indulgences that Luther posted his challenge to debate. This page is available to subscribers. Click here to sign in or get access.

Other Posts. I know of Eastern Catholics who say "no", stating that it has no basis according to the Eastern understanding of sin, and that it is a "Latin" doctrine. I always understood the doctrine of indulgences to be a "Catholic" doctrine- not a "Latin" one - and therefore all Eastern and Western Catholics are to believe in it.

Are Eastern Catholics to believe in indulgences? Bishop John's Answer : You ask whether or not Eastern Catholics are to believe in indulgences.

Yes, I too have heard some folks remark that the doctrine is incompatible with Eastern theology, however, they are sadly mistaken. The notion of an indulgence that removes the temporal punishment due to sin is deeply rooted in the theological consciousness of both East and West.

While it is an explicit doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, and thus a doctrine that we Eastern Catholics accept as we walk with the successor of Peter, you will find ample evidence of our Eastern affirmation of the cleansing of the soul after death as we progress towards the moment when, through God's generosity, we are admitted to eternal intimacy with Him.

When we look, for example, at the prayers that comprise the Sacrament of Holy Anointing that we celebrate as part of our observance of Holy Week, we find there, in several of the prayers, the notion that God's healing comes to us as we submit ourselves to His cleansing grace.

Repeatedly, the priest prays for a purification from the effects of sin, the complete remission of the effects of sin, and for a healing that penetrates both body and soul. Many of the sacred traditions of our Eastern Church that deal with our prayers of suffrage for the dead speak of our plea that the Lord will wipe away the effects of sin, cleanse us and the faithful departed from its effects so that they might enter fully into the kingdom.

The Church, as the living, mystical Body of Christ, dispenses the mercy of God in many ways. We find that the doctrine of indulgences is a beautiful expression of the Church's role in bringing salvation and healing to both the living and the dead.

Feel secure in the teachings of the Church. I suggest that you read No. We do well to take advantage of its many blessings. Bishop John's continues to explain indulgences and praying for the dead. Several folks have asked questions concerning the doctrine of indulgences given the heightened interest in indulgences granted during this jubilee year.

I am often astonished at remarks that the legal nature of indulgences seem to prove that they are applicable only to the Latin Church and are thus foreign to our Eastern theology. Many people do not realize that the legal aspects of church life, including canon law, began in the East.

The Emperor Justinian and the Byzantine court developed canons that are still the basis for many principles of law used in the church today. Indulgences deal with the wider notion of praying for the dead. We ask the question: Are our prayers for the dead efficacious?

Can we benefit our deceased loved ones by prayer, good works and suffrage prayers such as liturgies? Our Eastern liturgy is replete with prayers for the dead.

Our calendar, unlike the calendar of the Latin Church, has several feast days that are set-aside for prayers for the dead. The Saturday before Pentecost and the Saturdays of Great Lent are good examples. Further, we observe the third, ninth, and fortieth day after the death of a loved one as important anniversaries that we observe with a Liturgy offered for the repose of the soul of a loved one.

Clearly, both in the East and the West, we believe that our prayers benefit the dead. The writings of St. John Climacus: The Ladder of Divine Ascent describes some of the imagery that we find in our Eastern view of the soul's ascent to God.

Perhaps you have seen the ancient icon that portrays the soul on its ascent to God. We pray that the journey will be free of pain and diabolical attack. Indulgences, while subject to abuses in the Middle Ages, and an object of polemics against the Catholic Church in many circles, are, nonetheless, connected to the valued doctrine of God's mercy and generosity in dealing with us when we present ourselves to Him before the "awesome judgment seat of Christ".

The idea of temporal punishment due to sin is not entirely foreign to our Eastern theology. In some Eastern cultures, the surviving family members of dead offer candy to passersby at a Memorial Service, especially on the Saturday of the Dead, praying that the person would offer forgiveness to the deceased for any wrongs, imagined or real.

In the prayers of absolution said over the deceased, the Church prays for the dissolution of any bonds that would keep the deceased tied, in a temporal way, to the corpse or to an intermediate state of purification. We see dying and death as a process of growing towards union with God in eternity.

We assist our loved ones with our prayers, our sacrifices, and even by applying indulgences to them. Our Eastern Catholic Churches in full communion with the Apostolic See of Rome have experienced theological developments and growth.

We, as we walk with the successor of Peter, are not bound to the forms of the ancient East in a slavish manner, but rather interpret our liturgy and forms of prayer through the eyes and insights of a church that is both alive and evolving.

It is a grave error to keep ourselves blindly confined to the theological ideas of the first 10 centuries. My family has been Melkite Catholic for many generations. Are we to discard our Catholic beliefs because they find their origins in Catholic thought of the 20th century?

We appreciate and value our heritage, but we are open to the development of new theological insights as they develop under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We are a living Church.

No wonder I posted in on here, y'all are giving an excellent lesson. Fr Serge I meant Ukrainian Greek Catholic, which on occasion does get referred to as Ukrainian Rite Catholic. My only experiences have been in churches in the Eparchy of Chicago, and they do seem to vary a bit regarding Latin devotions.

Sadly, he appears to suffer from a certain degree of Latinization, and perhaps the fact that he was appointed a Bishop in the Melkite Church by the Pope rather than by the Melkite Holy Synod accounts for that. So, in spite of what Bishop John has written, I do not believe that Eastern Catholics are bound to accept the Latin theory of indulgences.

Indulgences were introduced to allow for the remission of the severe penances of the early church and granted at the intercession of Christians awaiting martyrdom or at least imprisoned for the faith. By the late Middle Agesindulgences were used to support charities for the public good, including hospitals. Eventually the Catholic Counter-Reformation curbed the abuses of indulgences, but indulgences continue to play a role in modern Catholic religious life, and were dogmatically confirmed as part of the Catholic faith by the Council of Trent.
