How to use "Absolve" in context?

When you go to confession and tell the priest that you've sinned, he may absolve you of your sins. Absolution, in Catholic theology, is the forgiveness of sins. Catholics believe that only God can forgive sins, but Jesus Christ offers His forgiveness to all who ask for it. When you go to confession, you are admitting that you've sinned, and the priest is responsible for offering you absolution. Absolution need not be repeated every time you sin, but it should be received whenever you go to confession.
