He Said It Better Than I- '31 days'- day 16

Fr Dwight Longenecker writes, "One of the famous choices between Catholics and Protestants is the relationship between faith and works. Many Protestants hear Catholics talk about “earning years off purgatory” or hear them talking about doing certain actions in order to earn a “plenary indulgence” and they assume that Catholics believe in salvation by works. It’s an easy conclusion to jump to, but in fact, the Catholic Church has never taught salvation by works. That’s a heresy called Pelagianism, and it was the Catholic Church that first recognized the heresy and stomped on it."
