Q&A

What if he has serious sin to confess but has no access to a priest in Iraq?

Catholic Answers Staff  •  8/4/2011

Question:

I know a Catholic serving in Iraq. He goes to Mass whenever possible in his remote location. There has been no priest available to hear confessions for a couple of weeks. If he has serious sin to confess and wants to confess but can&#039;t due to circumstances beyond his control, what would happen to him if he dies? He prays fervently and constantly asks for God&#039;s forgiveness and guidance, but is that enough?<br />
