Did you know? - In the absence of opportunities for the Sacrament of Penance, there is still a means of grace of forgiveness available through an Act of Perfect Contrition. What is perfect contrition? It is a sincere sorrow for sins motivated by love of God above all things. How does one make an act of perfect contrition? One should express to God that he/she is truly sorry for their sins, not because of fear of hell, but because of love for God who deserves all of our love. If one makes a sincere act of perfect contrition, all sins are forgiven, even mortal sins, provided that he/she has the intention of making a good confession as soon as possible. (See Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1452.)
