GUIDELINES ON ANOINTING OF THE SICK 
​“Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution, it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, beloved above all things, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (that which the penitent is at present able to express) and accompanied by votum confessionis, that is, by the firm resolution to have recourse, as soon as possible, to sacramental confession, obtains forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC, no. 1452).” 

"Donde cada fiel se encuentra en la dolorosa imposibilidad de recibir la absolución sacramental, debe recordarse que la contrición perfecta, procedente del amor de Dios, amado sobre todas las cosas, expresada por una sincera petición de perdón (la que el penitente es actualmente capaz de expresar) y acompañada de votum confessionis, es decir, por el firme propósito de recurrir cuanto antes a la confesión sacramental, obtiene el perdón de los pecados, incluso los mortales (cf. CCC, nº 1452)".
