Questions Covered: 02:40 – Is one plenary indulgence on behalf of the dead enough for them to be released from purgatory into heaven? 06:15 – In Mystici Corporis Christi number 86, it says, “They make the Divine Redeemer and the members of the Church coalesce in one physical person.” What does that mean? Why is it an error to think of Christ and those who make up the body of Christ as one? 12:41 – When Jesus was sent to Pilate, why didn’t he just send him to Herod, since Jesus was Herod’s subject? 16:07 – I asked my priest for Holy Water to put in my home. He asked me to bring in a bottle of water and he said a simple prayer over it. Is it really blessed, or do I need to have something more done?
