(Latin: restituere, to give back)

The returning of something that has been unjustly taken from another, or of its equivalent; also the indemnification of another for unjust damages done to his person or reputation or property. One who has been guilty of a serious act of injustice that demands restitution cannot obtain the pardon of his sins unless he makes restitution, or at least has a sincere intention of doing so when, and as far as, he is able.
