Absolution - In a religious sense, it involves a person being freed from guilt or sin.

Absolution in a liturgical church refers to the pronouncement of God's forgiveness of sins. (wikipedia)

The pronouncement of God's forgiveness, after the Confession of Sin, by a bishop or priest at the Eucharist, Daily Offices, or in the Reconciliation of a Penitent (St Pauls)

In the Roman Catholic church, the act of a priest in pronouncing the remission of sin, its eternal punishment, or the canonical penalties attached to it; in other churches, the declaration or imploring God's forgiveness by a priest or minister (Invista)

Following the confession of sins, the Absolution pronounces God's forgiveness either in a direct form ("I absolve/forgive you") or in a declarative form ("God forgives you all yours sins"). The word comes from the Latin, absolvere, which means "to loosen, set free, or absolve" (LSMS)
