Can A Priest Refuse To Forgive Your Sins?

In the Catholic faith, absolution is granted through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Confession. However, it is important to note that this sacrament involves more than simply confessing our sins and performing penance. It also requires a deep sense of contrition and a sincere desire to change our behavior. When we approach the confessional, if we are not truly sorry for our sins or lack the motivation to put an end to our transgressions, the priest may refuse to grant absolution. This is not a punitive measure, but rather a necessary step to ensure that we fully understand the gravity of our actions and are committed to making amends. It is through this process of honest self-reflection and humility that we can find true spiritual healing and growth. Father George explains in this video.
