Get out of Purgatory Free (or at least a little faster)

The Catholic Church has decided to reintroduce plenary indulgences as a way to get people to go to church, and specifically confession, more often. You can't buy them though. They're not going back that far. I suppose Martin Luther would be happy about that and the Church can avoid sparking another Protestant Reformation. But that does mean that you have to pray for your indulgence. So just FYI for those of you who are Catholic and concerned about the amount of time you will some day be spending in Purgatory.
