What is an Indulgence?

Canon 992 of the Catholic Church's Code of Canon Law states:

"An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment for sin, the guilt of which is already forgiven that can be gained by the faithful Christian who in a State of Grace meets prescribed conditions."  All Souls' Day Indulgences can be acquired only once on Nov. 1st or 2nd for oneself or the souls of the deceased if you: 1. Have the interior disposition of complete detachment form sin 2. visit a church to recite the Lord's Prayer and Apostle's Creed 3. sacramentally confess your sins 4. receive the Holy Eucharist            5. Pray for the intention of the Pope- an 'Our Father' and 'Hail Mary'
