Since we can’t go to Confession, below are a Perfect Contrition and Pledge for Future Reconciliation.
The Church teaches that, when sacramental confession and absolution are unavailable, forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones, is available through what the Church calls “perfect contrition” (see Catechism of the Catholic Church #1452).
Perfect contrition occurs when the following conditions are met:
A person is sorry for his or her sins out of their love of God.
That sorrow is expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (such as an act of contrition).
There is an intention to go to sacramental confession as soon as it is offered.
“The Church never asks us to do the impossible, and always is interested in the salvation of souls,” Father Pat Beidelman said. “And so, even in this extraordinary time where we don’t have widespread availability to individual confession and absolution, the Church still allows for that option for perfect contrition.”
