So I talked to a priest a couple of weeks ago about masturbation. He then asked me if I had ever heard about the “Old Church and New Church”, Vatican I and Vatican II.
I told him no I had not and he went on to explain that during Vatican I masturbation was considered a very grave, serious, and mortal sin. He said after that and during Vatican II, it was concluded that masturbation is only a venial sin now.
This didn’t sound accurate, but then again I’m still learning a lot about the faith all the time.
Does anyone have anymore information or insight on this?
