I don't think self sacrifice is the core of the concept here.

The modernist philosophy that's been creeping into heaven might allow for a heavenly word connected to "mercy in application of punishment of sexual transgressions" that could cover some of the concept, though probably not in the service of Judgement that would be its most logical home. And some superiors might be willing to tolerate lying to [some] people to obtain a that mercy, but lying to actual injured parties, or at confession, are probably still out, and they aren't going to hand out a word for it.
