Resources For Learning More About Catholic Indulgences

Recently,  I answered a reader’s question about indulgences. There are a lot of misconceptions about indulgences, even among faithful Catholics; thus, for those looking to go deeper into their understanding of this tenet of faith,  I thought I would share some further resources that do a good job explaining everything a Catholic should know about indulgences.

Resources for learning more about Cathoic Indulgences

1. Catechism of the Catholic Church (scroll down to article 1471-1479)

2. New Advent (does a good job explaining what indulgences are not)

3. Catholic Answers (debunks the usual myths about indulgences)

4. Catholic Online (introduction to indulgences)

5. Our Catholic Faith (general information)

6. Catholic Answers forum (A good discussion about indulgences)

7. Catholic City (simplified version of the catechism articles on indulgences)

I hope that these resources are helpful and give you a better understanding of the place of indulgences in our Catholic faith. Even more importantly, I pray that these resources will inspire your faith and they encourage you to gain indulgences so that you will grow ever closer to our Lord. (Just remember, indulgences can’t buy you into heaven!)
