Notes: ~ Absolution ~ in Christian theology, the act in the sacrament of penance, in which the priest, as the minister of God, grants forgiveness to a person confessing sins. For absolution to be effective, the confessor must be truly contrite. Most Protestant denominations do not acknowledge sacramental absolution, believing instead that sins are forgiven by confessing them directly to God and humbly asking for his forgiveness. Although the term
absolution is confined to Christian theology, the practice of beseeching a deity's forgiveness is common to almost all religions.
