The Truth About Indulgences and the Plan of Salvation

You know the Catholic phrase, "offer it up!" But do you know what it really means? How does it connect with "indulgences"?  Does the Catholic Church still believe in those?  How do they work?  Are they biblical?  Are they logical?  Come learn about the facts and fiction behind the Catholic doctrine of indulgences – what they are, what they’re not – and how indulgences are part of God’s larger plan of salvation for you.
