My local parish holds confessions on Saturday from 4-5PM. I showed up a few minutes early and waited with a few others but the priest never showed. I decided to leave at 4:30 as I believed the priest would not be able to make it due to other obligations.
I intend to make another try this Saturday but I was wondering had I
been hit by a bus (may God forbid) or experienced other misfourtune and died would my sins have been forgiven as I showed up for confession ?
