ok, this is sort of a follow up of a pervious post.
I understand now the moral obligation of catholic school teachers and how they lose employment if they act in a way that is contrary to church teaching.
but what if the offense in question happens before someone converts for example?
would a single mom ever be able to teach at a school, after she has converted, repented, all the rest. sincerely studied the faith for a few years
I guess the only issue is that the fact that she still has a kid while unmarried. not sure if that would still be a stumbling block for the children she would be potentially teaching?
that was sort of my question all along, yes, we recognize that certain things are immoral and we pray for people and their conversion, but after they repent, we can just help them out with their kid if they need it, be a good cahotlic model for the child, be a good friend. in fact, we should be doing that regardless, even if they do not know God fully yet, shouldn’t we?
I know I keep using this scenariobut there are probably others, a murderer released from prison, or people who committed adultery. people say pretty horrible things even if the person in question is sincerely trying to lead a good life now
