Reparation question


#1

Say you commit a mortal sin, and you go to confession. You wish to make reparation for that sinful act, but it becomes impossible to do so. What are you obliged to do?


#2

No one is obliged to do the impossible.

I believed Jesus made the reparation for you. All you have to do is thank Him and not to commit the same mortal sin again.

You are obliged to repent (make an about face change), not to do the impossible.

The priest you went to confession to would be the one to ask this of. He would be in a better position since he would know what you did and what should/can be done.

May God bless and keep you. May God's face shine on you. May God be kind to you and give you peace.
