re: internet QUESTION from joe July 9, 2000 i read the response to bran's ? qand does it take anything more to be reconciled for a grave sin besides penance
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on September 7, 2000 Dear Mr. Joe:
You need to meet the requirements necessary for absolution... that is to confess your sin, by contrite of heart (offer contrition) and promise a firm amendment (repentance). Then the priest can absolve you of your sin and you perform whatever penance he gives you.
