We can give Fisheaters the credit for this one. The others came from Catholic Culture.

Hi Old Sarge.Here’s some local info for me:)
Philadelphia archdiocese offers indulgencesBy David O’Reilly
INQUIRER STAFF WRITER
READER FEEDBACK
Post a comment The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia is honoring its 200th anniversary by offering its members a “plenary indulgence” from their sins, a practice begun in the Middle Ages that remains controversial today.

Wonderful post, thank you!

If I may add something those of our bretheren who love and appreciate Scripture may find interesting: Another way to obtain a pleniary indulgence is to simply read Scripture devoutly for a half hour.

Thanks, everyone. I thought that it was extremely informative. Might be a good topic for some adult faith formation classes to get them up to par on this part of their Catholic education that they may have missed!

Yes it would. This is a commonly misunderstood topic, even for many Catholics.

Is that in regards to the controversial picture of JPII kissing the Koran, and a possible explaination thereof? Sorry for butting in if not, I was just wondering (as I've heard a few deny the picture, call it a hoax, etc)

No this is an Icon of Our Lady of Kazan that was given back to Russia.

I think it was just a sign of respect for a gift that was holy to those giving that gift.

The most important information:

In this way, the Catholic can offer the benefits of the indulgence to the souls in Purgatory. Indulgences can only be applied to oneself or to a soul in Purgatory, not to another living person. When applied to the souls in Purgatory, it is done only by petition to God, for those no longer of the Church Militant (the living members of the Church on Earth) are not subject to the Church hierarchs who've been given the authority to grant indulgences.

Let us never forget those who need our prayers.

**Let us never forget those who need our prayers.**

Amen!

Have you read any of Maria Simma’s books? Powerful!

May the poor souls in Purgatory receive our prayers since they cannot pray for themselves.
