Default Divine Mercy Sunday Vs Regular Confession

Ron:

I am wondering how a person who receives communion on Divine Mercy Sunday verses a person who receives communion on any other Sunday might experience the Warning (assuming neither person sins before the Warning). I hope this question makes sense! Any thoughts?

The Warning only shows each person the sins remaining on their conscience. So if you have made a good confession at any time, those sins are forgiven and are not on your conscience. Catholics who have made a good confession not long before the Warning should be better prepared than anyone who has never been to confession, or who has not been in a long time.

I don't think the DM Sunday devotion has much effect on this particular point.
