A Prayer for obtaining the effects of a Plenary or other
Indulgences granted by the Church.

N Indulgence is a favour granted by the Church to

penitent sinners, whereby, in consideration of their performing some particular acts of religion, specified in the grant of the indulgence, the whole, or part of the canonical pennance, formerly enjoined for particular sins, is relaxed and remitted. If the whole be remitted, the Indulgence is called Plenary ; if only a part, it is called an indulgence of seven years, four years, two years, or forty days, according to the part of the Canonical pennance to be remitted.

Hence it appears that an Indulgence is so far from being either a leave or permission to commit sin, that it is not so much as even a forgiving of sins, but only a relaxation of the punishment due to sins already forgiven in the sacrament of pennance.

The following decree therefore of the Council of Trent, explains the doctrine of the Catholic Church, concerning her power in the grant of indulgences, and the use she wishes to be made of this power. Sess. 24 de Reform. As the power of bestowing Indulgences was granted by Christ to the Church, and as the Church,

even in the most early ages, made use of this power, “ the holy Synod teacheth and appointeth the use of " indulgences, so very salutary to Christian people, “and approved of by the authority of the sacred Coun

cils, to be retained in the Church; but desires that “moderation should be used in the grant of them,

according to the antient and approved use of the “ Church ; lest, by too much ease, the discipline of the “ Church be enervated. But desiring likewise that the “ abuses that have crept therein may be corrected, she orders in general the abolishing all traffic for gaining
