What the Phillies can teach us about Indulgences

The Philadelphia Phillies have just won the 2008 World Series. I had nothing to do with it — heck, I haven’t really followed the team during the regular season since the days of Del Unser — and yet I’m very happy right now.

That’s a good analogy for indulgences. Somebody else does a great deal of work, and I, through some simple act (prayer in one case, watching TV in the other) get some of the benefit.
