The Body of Saint Maria Goretti – The Body – The Reliquary and The Statue

The Body

A plenary indulgence can be gained for the Pilgrimage to 1st Class Relic on tour if gained in a state of grace under the normal conditions and can be gained for the living or the dead

What an indulgence is not

It is not an exemption from any law or duty 

Not is it a remission for multiple sins but one sin of your own or that of your Dead

See the Catholic Encyclopedia for more info on same

There are different types of Indulgences with different kinds of jurisdictions

Plenary Indulgences for the dead for instance would obviously have no affect on temporal punishment since the person has already passed and temporal punishment only apply to the living

Plenary Indulgences petitions petitions God to accept these works of satisfaction and in consideration thereof to mitigate or shorten the sufferings of the souls in Purgatory.

And that is all that a Plenary Indulgence can ever do is lessen the sentence it can never mitigate all the sins a person sentenced to Purgatory has committed

For substantiation please see the following standard

The authority of the teaching and Nihil Obstat

Ecclesiastical approbation. Nihil Obstat. June 1, 1910. Remy Lafort, S.T.D., Censor. Imprimatur. +John Cardinal Farley, Archbishop of New York.

As the Church Doctors Saint Theresa of Avila and Saint John The Cross teaches “time” is different in both Purgatory and heaven

as well as our mystics Saint Catherine of Siena and Saint Catherine of Genoa

It could potentially take generations for the those sentenced to Purgatory to be remitted of the many sins committed

The Indulgences the living gain while on earth to reduce temporal punishment is something all together different –

For the sins we have committed we will pay in the eternal realm – all of it

As in Matthew 5:26

26Amen I say to thee, thou shalt not go out from thence till thou repay the last farthing.
