A doctrinal work on indulgences. It follows closely that teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2nd ed., the Manual of Indulgences, Norms and Grants (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and various papal documents on the subject, and has received an Imprimatur."Indulgences opens a special door to this treasury for all the faithful." (Manual of Indulgences, Norms and Grants, USCCB)"It is a sensitive subject, which has suffered historical misunderstandings that have had a negative impact on communion between Christians. In the present ecumenical context, the Church is aware of the need for this ancient practice to be properly understood and accepted as a significant expression of God's mercy." (John Paul II (1999), Indulgences are Expression of God's Mercy) "The Christian who seeks to purify himself of his sin and to become holy with the help of God's grace is not alone." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1474 on Indulgences and the Communion of Saints.)What is this Treasury of the Church? Why are indulgences a "sensitive subject," rarely talked about within the Church? Did you know that the Catechism of the Catholic Church states that sin has a "double consequence"? What are these double consequences and how are indulgences used to remove part of this consequence? Bringing together the various Catholic Church's doctrines on Indulgences along with the writings of Saint John Paul II, Pope Paul VI, and Pope Francis, Unlocking Indulgences: A Treasury for All the Faithful takes a step-by-step look at what indulgences are, how to obtain an indulgence, and how indulgences are meant to lead us into a closer relationship with God. If you are unfamiliar with indulgences or haven't taken a thoughtful look at indulgences as a daily devotional walk with Christ and the saints, "to become holy with the help of God's grace," then this book will reveal another dimension of God's mercy available to you.
