And yet, if we have only a hazy and confused knowledge of this most important subject, how can we properly appreciate and - more vital still - how can we make an intelligent and effective use of indulgences? How can we, unless we know the what, the why, and the how of indulgences “draw waters with joy out of the Saviour’s Fountains”?
