SupertradmumWhat you say is worrying. Three is after all a sgncifinait sample.One priest apparently supports wilful and persistant ignorance - a grave matter for which he will answer. (CCC 1735-6)A second priest is heterodox, and should not be in the ChurchBoth examples indicate, without knowing the details, a grave matter and possibly mortal sin. Yes, the term is still used (CCC IV 1854-1864). As for the one who wants to preserve the status quo, may God preserve us!
