I have read about how consecrated religious, when making their professions, make a vow of obedience to their superior.
I came across the phrase of “as to bind their conscience” in the context of when a superior can “command” ask something of one of those that they over, and that that brother/sister must obey, as long as they are not being asked to sin.
What does the phrase “as to bind one’s conscience” mean?
