Gaining Indulgences during the Year of Faith 2012-2013

On Friday, October 26, the Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land presented the Directives for gaining indulgences during the Year of Faith 2012-2013.

An indulgence is defined in the Code of Canon Law (can. 992) and in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (n. 1471): “An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions of Christ and the saints”. (Code of Canon Law, Can. 992)
