Q&A

Can someone who has committed a mortal sin receive Communion if he makes a perfect act of contrition?

Question:

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that if a person makes a &quot;perfect&quot; act of contrition, his mortal sins are forgiven if he has the firm amendment to go to sacramental confession as soon as possible. Does this mean that a person in the pew at Sunday morning Mass, after supposedly making a perfect act of contrition, can receive the Eucharist at that Mass?<br />
