Senatus non errat

Senatus non errat et si errat non corrigit si videatur errasse
The senate does not err, and if it errs it does not correct, so that it is not seen to have erred.
I am taking a break from blogging and reading Disputed Truth again. Here is Hans Küng with his criticism of moral theology at the Gregorian:
In the sixth commandment on sexuality there was no parvus materiae; there were no slight sins but only intrinsically grave ones. The position on the eighth commandment on truthfulness was the opposite; there were only slight sins, unless the circumstances were grave. It often struck me even more at the Council how often in the discussions 'the truth' was put forward in an untruthful way.
