So I was reading canon law a little while ago and I noticed something that I found rather disturbing, in honesty.
“Can. 977 The absolution of an accomplice in a sin against the sixth commandment of the Decalogue is invalid except in danger of death.”
Why can’t this sin be forgiven unless you are about to die? Can anybody explain this? It seems rather contradictory since any sin can be forgiven, even murder, sacrilige or blasphemy, providing the one confessing is repentant. How come this one can’t be forgiven?
