An Examination of Conscience

(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)

Padre Salvi mentions that Padre Damaso will be transferred to a town in Tayabas.  Since Maria Clara is still sick, the Curate suggests that Maria Clara makes her confession.  Tia Isabel agrees with the Curate, and prepares Maria Clara for her confession.  After hearing Maria Clara’s confession, Padre Salvi exits the room looking gloomy, with his forehead covered with perspiration.
