Didn't hear the priest absolve me: am I forgiven?


#1

Hello,

I just went to confession and after my act of contrition, the priest did a kind of quick whisper, then said “in the name of the Father, and the Son, and Holy Spirit”, and that was it. I didn’t hear him say “I absolve you of your sins”. Is it a valid confession?

Never mind. I ran into my pastor and he said I’m good. Thanks.

I would have said so to!

Good because that’s what I would have said as well. :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
