Shrive: The confess one's sins to a priest and be forgiven, especially at the time of death. The sacrament of extreme unction.
And what of those who lay unshriven and unmourned in mass graves, would they ever be released from purgatory?
It was early December, the feast of Saint Barbara, to be exact, the saint who protects us from sudden death, lest we die unshriven with all our sins upon us.
