If my husband dies before he is able to confess and receive absolution, will God forgive him?


My husband is a faithful Catholic serving in Iraq right now and goes to Mass whenever it is available. He has felt a strong desire to go to confession, but there has been no priest available for a couple of weeks. If he were to die, what would happen to him? He prays fervently and is constantly asking for God’s forgiveness and guidance, but is that enough? How can he be held responsible if he has no access to confession?
