Why didn't the priest absolve Salieri?

I watched Amadeus last night because my gf had to watch it for her music appreciation class.

I thought I'd hate it, but it was very good.

The play set in flashbacks with Salieri giving his lady confession to a priest. It must have been a long Confession because it starts out in the morning, good all day and into the night and to the next morning.

But at the end, after it was all said and done, the priest just slumps there as Salieri is wheeled out to breakfast.

So why did he not give him absolution?

    He wasn't regretful of what he'd done, possibly.
