Every offense committed against justice and truth entails the duty of reparation, even if its author has been forgiven. When it is impossible publicly to make reparation for a wrong, it must be made secretly. If someone who has suffered harm cannot be directly compensated, he must be given moral satisfaction in the name of charity. This duty of reparation also concerns offenses against another’s reputation. This reparation, moral and sometimes material, must be evaluated in terms of the extent of the damage inflicted. It obliges in conscience.
— CCC 2487
This isn’t part of the Catechism, but it is my opinion that reparation has four good ends:
– Penance to heal the poor sinner;
– Consolation for Christ crucified;
– Help God save souls from deceit;
– Lessening of temporal punishment.

46 minutes to answer one, pretty straightforward question?

BillyHW,
I take it that part of the point is that it is not, in fact, a straightforward question; as he ends by saying, it’s a complicated subject, and the subtlety of the answer serves as a caution against being facile about the word ‘heresy’.

Thanks so much for tackling my question, Jimmy! I’ve only listened to the first half so far and am certainly looking forward to the rest. Just wanted to send a note sooner rather than later that I really appreciate it.

Thanks for your usual thorough job, but the question remains; what to do about those entrusted with teaching the Faith but espouse heterodox opinions?
As you say, they are not formally heretics — but when was the last time anyone was actually declared a heretic? The only cases I can think of are a few professors who lost teaching posts.
Americans who spied for the USSR during the Cold War technically weren’t traitors because we were never at war with the Soviets. But I doubt calling them traitors would damage their reputation.
Hearing priests, bishops or catechists dissent from the Magisterium is at least scandal to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
In today’s world of instant communication maybe Church authorities need to respond to heterodoxy as soon as it becomes public rather than leisurely inviting Bishop X in for consultations.
Sorry for the long post.
Love the podcast, keep up the great work.
