In the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church , an indulgence is "a way to reduce the amount of punishment one has to undergo for sins".  It may reduce the temporal punishment after death, in the state or process of purification called Purgatory . This temporal punishment would not be considered "time", as Purgatory, like Heaven and Hell, is said to exist "outside of time".
