ABSOLUTION
[ Also see Forgiveness ]

It is not the ambassador, it is not the messenger, but the Lord Himself that saveth His people. The Lord remaineth alone, for no man can be partner with God in forgiving sins; this office belongs solely to Christ, who taketh away the sins of the world.
      - Saint Ambrose

Neither angel, nor archangel, not yet even the Lord Himself (who alone can say "I am with you"), can, when we have sinned, release us, unless we bring repentance with us.
      - Saint Ambrose

No man taketh away sins (which the law, though holy, just and good, could not take away), but He in whom there is no sin.
      - Bede "The Venerable"

He alone can remit sins who is appointed our Master by the Father of all; He only is able to discern obedience from disobedience.
      - Pope Clement I (Clemens Romanus) (Saint Clement of Alexandria)

It appertaineth to the true God alone to be able to loose men from their sins.
      - Saint Cyril of Alexandria

It is appertaineth to the true God alone to be able to loose men from their sins.
      - Saint Cyril of Alexandria
