Very informative article, thanks!
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.
Sin is injustice not only to almighty god, but to ourselves and others. Our sins maybe be forgiven but the effects of the injustice remain. How else repair the wrong done if not by right deeds?
