Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Seems quite clear. Grave matter, knowledge and consent. All easily understood concepts.To take an obvious example, the use of a foeticide tablet to end an early pregnancy, obviously fits.But also, Catholics who turn up to Mass when they feel like it, (not too tired after the previous night out ), and more so, when they then join the flow and receive the Body and Blood of Christ, like all the others, are, objectively speaking we must say, committing mortal sin, even if they do it just once.I wish a few more of our priests would explain such basic principles of the Faith, as the Cardinal does.
Thank you Francis Cardinal Arinze, particularly the observation at 6:59 that, 'If one of the theologians deceived him [about the nature of mortal sin], then the theologian will have the fault'.Excellent!
