SPLIT: Valid absolution?


#1

Did he pronounce the words of absolution? If he didn’t, you weren’t absolved.


#2

I thought the same thing. It’s a great story!! But it isn’t an absolution…


#3

Just to be clear, those words are:

“I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

If he didn’t say those words, you didn’t receive absolution.


#4

If this is really what the priest said then no absolution was given.

I assumed the poster omitted the rushed muttering of the words of absolution.
