What is the Apostolic Pardon?

08-20-2017

The Catholic Encyclopedia explains exactly what the Apostolic Pardon is and the requirements to perform it.

"The anointing [of the sick] is ordinarily succeeded by the conferring of the Apostolic benediction, or 'last blessing,' as it is commonly called. To this blessing a plenary indulgence is attached, to be gained, however, only at the hour of death, i.e. it is given nunc pr o tunc. It is conferred in virtue of a special faculty granted to the bishops and by them delegated quite generally to their priests. The conditions requisite for gaining it are the invocation of the Holy Name of Jesus at least mentally, acts of resignation by which the dying person professes his willingness to accept all his sufferings in reparation for his sins and submits himself entirely to the will of God…. The words of St. Augustine are in point: 'However innocent your life may have been, no Christian ought to venture to die in any other state than that of the penitent.'"
