According to the canon of st basil to remarry a third time called for 5 yrs excommunication…. this would make this act ‘grave’ and a ‘mortal sin’. Later this was condemned as heresy, (montasism) So does this means something in a canon was a heresy?
I guess the best answer to this I can come up with is that ‘bound by Peter’ Disciplines can certainly be fallible to the point of being heresies but ‘bound by Peter’ Doctrine can not…. Which makes me still kind of really disturbed. Please help!!
Two tiny side questions
Also I was wondering if violating one of the 5 precepts of the church is said still to be grave? (I know the canon and CCC references for the gravity of Sun Mass and days of abstinence… but I don’t seem to see the 5 precepts “as a whole” listed as grave anymore in the CCC 2041- 2043) Apparently it was understood in the older days that these were grave as per the Baltimore Catechism. Has the gravity changed or been lifted? Any reference?
Finally if you violate any minor canon law is it said to be grave? Any reference? I understand the 5 precepts but wouldn’t think so with every line in the canon…
And its ok you don’t have to go further, I won’t object if they are grave, just curious
