Word of the Day: Absolution of the Dying
ABSOLUTION OF THE DYING. Special faculties conferred by the Church’s common law, for any priest, even though laicised or not approved for confessions, can validly and licitly absolve any penitent in danger of death. The absolution covers any sin and censure, even in the presence of a priest who is approved for confessions.
