Say if you sinned the same day you went to confession


and you probably also received Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, what happens to the prayers and actions of goodness and charity you say and do prior to that moment where you committed mortal sin?


Any merits gained in the state of sanctifying grace prior to the commission of mortal sin are regained when one is absolved.

No good works earn supernatural merit while done in the state of mortal sin, although God can give actual graces to move people to repentance.


simple and straight to the point. God bless you riend
