"But if anyone approaches this Sacrament believing in good faith that he is in a state of grace, whereas he is not, then the Eucharist will blot out the sin."

Can someone explain this, please?

It's perhaps surprising, but it is true.

Does that mean that the person is in some sense contrite?

Or that he would be if he were aware of a problem.

Can you give me a concrete example of this situation, please?

A person who committed a mortal sin and has forgotten about it.

I did this once when I was outside the Church in my younger yrs, but did it out of ignorance. I just wanted to go to Mass, didn't even know why--- because.. didn't know much of anything in those days vis a vis the Faith and etc.. very young and ignorant, uncatechized.

Then later, I thought about the time I d id that, took Communion while in mortal sin. I didn't SEE the sin as mortal but I knew the Church said it was. Even so, I d id not deliberately take Communion knowing it was a sin to do so.. I found out later that it is normally a serious sin

a lot of bad things happened to me not long after I did that and I have sometimes wondered if there is a cause-effect thing there? only God knows

There were psychological and emotional reasons as to why I didn't think the sin I had committed was mortal.. but of course, that doesn't change the fact tht it was/is..

in any case, I don't have a problem beleiving what Aquinas said/wrote
