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.)
We continue to pray fervently for those who are suffering, and humbly ask the Lord for His protection and mercy.
