Justine makes a false cofession so she could be absolved for all the sins in her life. She comes to regret this decision later,

I did confess; but I confessed a lie. I confessed, that I might obtain absolution; but now that falsehood lies heavier at my heart than all my other sins. The God of heaven forgive me."
