What is a Plenary Indulgence ?
The Church, the Bride of Christ, has been given the power of the keys of the kingdom of heaven. She exercises this power by a request to her Groom, Jesus the Lord, to heal the spiritual wounds remaining in a person after the guilt of his sins has been forgiven. She attaches this request to some good deed like praying for the Holy Souls, going on a pilgrimage or similar good work. It is very like the period of recuperation after an operation. The problem has been removed, but the body needs time and treatment to recover. Hence the need for penance after forgiveness in Confession and the great benefit of gaining an indulgence for the healing of the traces of sin and sinfulness remaining in us.
Care not Kill: There is a bill before the Scottish Parliament to legalise assisted suicide. This is against the law of God which teaches us to care for the dying, not to kill them A petition form is in the porch if you wish to sign it .
