“” Bless me father, for I have sinned. My last confession was.. I can’t remember when… These are my sins.”  I am making up the sins. For the guarantee of absolution. In the beginning again, at zero. Before Heaven even. Before the Fall. All previous wrongs erased. Reduced to spotless. Pure. When I receive God, all pure. Totally. For the Dwelling of God housed in my body and soul must be clean. free of sin. Any sin. Mortal sin. “( p. 16-17)

This passage really spoke to me, specifically when this particular woman said that she was making up sins, because she knew that she would be forgiven. When reading this passage, the pains of colonization and forced imperialism ran through me. The words in French speak to this. I found this book to be quite confusing, so I would love clarification on this if possible.  That passage just resonated with me.
