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

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.
