We must now consider the forgiveness of venial sins, under which head there are four points of inquiry:
A Whether venial sin can be forgiven without Penance?
A Whether it can be forgiven without the infusion of grace?
A Whether venial sins are forgiven by the sprinkling of holy water, a bishop's blessing, the beating of the breast, the Lord's Prayer, and the like?
A Whether a venial sin can be taken away without a mortal sin?
