"Deus, Pater misericordiárum, qui per mortem et resurrectiónem Fílii sui mundum sibi reconciliávit et Spíritum Sanctum effúdit in remissiónem peccatórum, per ministérium Ecclésiæ indulgéntiam tibi tríbuat et pacem...."
From the fixed formula for sacramental absolution adopted after the 1970 liturgical reforms in the Catholic Church.
"For a valid reception of general absolution, the penitent must be contrite for all his mortal sins and have the resolution to confess, at the earliest opportunity, each of those mortal sins forgiven in general absolution. Anyone receiving general absolution is also required to make a complete individual confession to a priest as soon as possible. An historical example is the absolution given by Fr. William Corby to the Irish Brigade during the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. Contemporary examples of general absolution are theThree Mile Island nuclear accident, where general absolution was granted to all Catholics endangered by the incident, and the FDNY firefighters, many of whom were Italian and Irish, who were granted general absolution by local priests before heading into the burning World Trade towers on September 11, 2001."
I have said that re the issues of racism and racial bigotry, the country must experience a collective epiphany and catharsis before the matters are, or can be resolved.
Seeking absolution before this occurs is quite premature.
A clear case of putting the cart before the horse.
