Catholic Word of the Day: INDULT, 10-29-12 ^ | 10-29-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 10/29/2012 9:00:22 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


A temporary favor granted by the Holy See to bishops to permit them to do something not otherwise allowed. If given for a certain time, it must be renewed by competent ecclesiastical authority. Thus according to the Code of Canon Law, an indult is required for a priest to practice surgery and a cloistered nun needs an indult to travel outside the cloister.

KEYWORDS: catholic; general; prayer; worship
Some priests have an indult to say more Masses than usual since they are the one and only priest in a parish.
