    I'm confused about confession and absolution the forgiveness of sin. Studying a coarse on the mass breaking it down in all of its parts it appears to me after theconfeitor, Gloria and collect said with your most sincere belief that all your sins would be forgiven before you consume the body and blood of Jesus Christ.why would you then have to go to confession to a priest before mass. Doesn't the parts of the mass mentioned cleanse the soul by virtue of your prayers before God.
