Perfect Act of Contrition


While at bible class last night, we were discussing sin. Our leader said that mortal sin can be forgiven with a Perfect Act of Contrition. What does this mean? Thanks.


Hi JoEllen,

I think that you have posted this in the wrong forum.

But, I am going to give you a link to the Catechism of the Catholic Church with a search engine. Type in contrition and I believe that you’ll get the information that you are seeking.

Praying for your sucess!
