' ' The subject "Indulgence In the Catho lic Church" was explained by Rev. Fr. Sutton at St. Monica's Church last even ing. There Is no doctrine of the Catholic church that has been so misrepresented, aud brought before the people in a bad and evil light, as the doctrine of Indul gence. The definition of Indulgence is: A remission in whole or in part of the tem poral punishment due to sin. Jn sin we consider two things, guilt and punish ment. Guilt is that state into which we fail when we have been guilty of some crime. A penalty Is two-fold, two kinds of punishment, one eternal and the other temporal. When God pardon the guilt of a sin, he alwavs pardons or remits tne eternal punishment, when guilt is taken away, then also eternal punishment due to that sin Is taken away. Temporal punishment is not removed. That is poverty, sickness, trouble, labor, etc. Christ has left in his church a great er power to remit guilt of sin, to remove eternal punishment. Eternal punishment is takeu away when guilt Is remitted, the church In the early days showed that she possessed this power, when she uttered those words of Our Lord, when he ad dressed the apostles: "Whatsoever you shall loose on earth, shall be loose in Heaven." Indulgence is just the same as it was in the early days, but as times and manners have entirely changed, the church no longer imposes severe punishments. e ha-e what is called indulgence, there is a 40 days Indulgence, and a 7 years. Indulgence refers to sins already par doned and forgiven. The sin must have already been pardoned before an indul gence is gained. When the guilt and eter nal punishment has been taken away, tnat temporal punishment may remain af ter the sin is forgiven. In order to gain au Indul gence a person must be in friendship with God, must do w hat the church prescribes. Temporal punishment then, cannot be ta ken awav in this life, but in the other world. Eternal punishment may be, but an indulgence can only be gained when the eternal punishment due to sin is taken away, the person must be free from sin. BARRE MAN IN JAIL.
