Those running the school I went to and who told us "give a dollar and buy your way into heaven" must have missed that.
Ahh....another unprovable anecdote. I'd begun to think those were gone with Fr. Ambrose. Apparently not.

BTW...an Eastern Orthodox priest killed my uncle. Just sayin'.

Was your uncle trying to sell him an indulgence?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Are you sure about that? I could have sworn I read that the selling of indulgences was condemned at the Council of Trent.

You did.

Guess so.  It happens.  Sad
