Dealing with apparent contradictions in Church teaching
it is also possible for a discipline to change - for example tommarow the pope could (it's very unlikely) decide that priests could get married. that would be a change in discipline. another good example is the fule about abstinence for Friday. Many people think that the pope just removed the abstinence from meat on Friday. That is partially true. Actually what he said was that you could substitute something else in lieu of eating meat on Friday. So if you are planning to eat hamburgers or steak on Friday, answer me this; "What was the penance that you are going to do in substitution for not eating meat on Friday?" ??? ??? ???
