What is a “local caps contact chapter”?
Context is everything. What is the context of these statements?
Venial sin is forgiven whenever we ask for forgiveness and by reception of the sacraments or by blessings and the use of sacramental objects. We receive forgiveness of venial sin through grace.
Absolution from a priest is not required for the remission of venial sins, whereas it is for mortal sin.
So, within the Mass, venial sin would be forgiven when we recite the Confiteor, Kyrie, or the Lord’s Prayer. Also within the context of Mass we would be forgiven venial sins when we receive any sacrament such as Holy Communion, Marriage, Ordination, Baptism, or Confirmation.
Outside of Mass, venial sins are forgiven when we receive any other sacrament such as Anointing of the Sick or Confession, or Marriage outside Mass, or through sacramental use such as a blessing from a priest or bishop, use holy water or holy oil, etc.
All of the above presume venial sin only. Of course, venial sin will not be remitted when someone is in a state of mortal sin. Such requires sacramental confession.
