Extraordinary Jubilee of MercyDecember 8, 2015 - November 20, 2016.


“Jesus crucified is the great ‘indulgence’ that the Father has offered to humanity”

Indulgences are a gift that spring forth from the abundance of the mercy of God, made manifest in the Cross of Christ. In this context, the question about indulgences should be understood from the perspective of a complete personal renewal, in virtue of the grace which comes from Christ our Redeemer through the ministry of the Church. Therefore, "far from being a sort of 'discount' on the duty of conversion, they are rather an aid to its prompt, generous and radical fulfillment." (General Audience Sept. 29, 1999)
