In the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church , an indulgence is "a way to reduce the amount of punishment one has to undergo for sins." [1] It may reduce the "temporal punishment for sin" after death (as opposed to the eternal punishment merited by mortal sin ), in the state or process of purification called Purgatory .

The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes an indulgence as "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". [2]

The recipient of an indulgence must perform an action to receive it. This is most often the saying (once, or many times) of a specified prayer , but may also include the visiting of a particular place, or the performance of specific good works .
