It was an unheard of idea,...especially to the bins ..I'm sure

Again not answering the,question about priests,by deflection ..

I was just curious about the,teAching on it ..as the idea of here never have been unrepentant priests is not believable ..as is the idea there are no unrepentant ministers ...or any class,of people .

The Gospels as Literature
Christian gospels fall into a particular form of literature.
They are not histories or biographies, though especially Luke masquerades as such.
Instead, they are theological documents with merely the tone and tenor of biographies or histories. Apologists often rely on this to defend the liberties the authors take with reality. Regardless, there is truth to it.
But I'll leave the analysis of the literary genre to those more adept than I in the subject.
My point is simply that the four primary authors of the canonical gospels and their redactors, to varying degrees, were skilled in using literary devices to accomplish their task: convincing 1st century nonbelievers of the Jesus story.
I wonder, when modern believers read in John 2, "Then said the Jews,'Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days,'" do they really believe the moneychangers and other merchants confronted in the temple actually said that in unison to Jesus?
Someone may have said it. It may be a good summary of the general response to Jesus confronting the authorities in the temple, if that actually happened. But really? All the Jews on scene said that in unison? Is that the way crowds react today?
Of course not. The primary author of John is using a literary device.
Ever notice in TV sitcoms that no one ever says, "Goodbye," or "Talk to you later," after a phone conversation? Sitcom characters merely hang up after concluding the meat of their phone conversation.
Script writers realize such pleasantries don't advance the plot, which needs resolved in about 20 minutes in most sitcoms, and they know most audience members won't notice if the omit those pleasantries. That's *most* audience members cuz anyone reading this post will notice it from now on -- and it will really bug you for a while.
Whoever wrote the first gospel, Mark, was not especially good with Greek. I recall one scholar characterizing his effort as "crude". It was a second language he struggled with.
But make no mistake: Mark's author was a hell of a storyteller, even if not much of a linguist.
Take Mark's version of the story of the moneychangers in the temple, just mentioned above from John.
In Mark, unlike John, on the way to Jerusalem before the confrontation in the temple, Jesus, hungry, encounters a fig tree without fruit and curses it because he cannot obtain sustenance from it.
Upon leaving Jerusalem, after taking on the moneychangers -- curing them -- Jesus and the disciples pass the fig tree again. It has withered from the roots up.
John mentions nothing of the fig tree. This is a Markan tale, and Mark's author has used that tale to ply one of his common literary techniques -- framing one story with two parts of a related story or two separate but related stories. Jesus has cursed a fig tree that bears no fruit, just has he has cursed a temple system that -- in the author's view -- was equally barren.
The story is intended to foreshadow the fall of the 2nd temple, something that already had happened when the Gospel of Mark was written.
This is storytelling at its finest.
Anyone doubt it? Look at its influence on Western Civilization for better or worse.
Bam!
Except in that instance the temple Jesus meant was Himself . Not the TEMPLe ...

Rose, you were taught that it's Christ that forgives the sins, He works through the priest. The priest is just a vessel. How could tyou forget these fundamental teachings?
The concept of confession of sin to a priest is nowhere taught in Scripture. First, the New Testament does not teach that there are to be priests in the New Covenant. Instead, the New Testament teaches that all believers are priests. First Peter 2:5-9 describes believers as a “holy priesthood” and a “royal priesthood.” Revelation 1:6 and 5:10 both describe believers as “a kingdom of priests.” In the Old Covenant, the faithful had to approach God through the priests. The priests were mediators between the people and God. The priests offered sacrifices to God on behalf of the people. That is no longer necessary. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we can now approach God’s throne with boldness (Hebrews 4:16). The temple veil tearing in two at Jesus’ death was symbolic of the dividing wall between God and humanity being destroyed. We can approach God directly, ourselves, without the use of a human mediator. Why? Because Jesus Christ is our great High Priest (Hebrews 4:14-15; 10:21) and the only mediator between us and God (1 Timothy 2:5). The New Testament teaches that there are to be elders (1 Timothy 3), deacons (1 Timothy 3), bishops (Titus 1:6-9), and pastors (Ephesians 4:11)– but not priests.

When it comes to confession of sin, believers are told in 1 John 1:9 to confess their sins to God. God is faithful and just to forgive our sins as we confess them to Him. James 5:16 speaks of confessing our trespasses “to one another,” but this is not the same as confessing sins to a priest as the Roman Catholic Church teaches. Priests / church leaders are nowhere mentioned in the context of James 5:16. Further, James 5:16 does not link forgiveness of sins with the confession of sins “to one another.”

Hope that helps.

You are correct but off target.

The particular quote from John's story of the moneychangers -- the same story relayed in Mark -- is not of interest except for John's literary device -- common to all the gospels -- of having crowds speak in unison.

Would it help you if I use this example from the same story in John: "The Jews then responded to him,'What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?'”

Or are you simply too confused for help?

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands, that if any obey not the Word, they also may be won without the word by the conduct of their wives

2 while they behold your chaste manner of living coupled with fear.

3 When adorning yourselves, let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing gold, or of putting on apparel;

4 but let it be the hidden man of the heart which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which in the sight of God is of great price.

5 For in this manner in olden times the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands,

6 even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. Ye are her daughters as long as ye do well and are not afraid with any bewilderment.

7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with your wives with understanding, giving honor unto the wife as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers be not hindered.

8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one for another. Love each other as brethren, be sympathetic, be courteous,

9 not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing, but contrariwise blessing, knowing that ye are called thereto, that ye might inherit a blessing.

10 For,“He that would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.

11 Let him eschew evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.

12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.”

Father, I don't know if you meant this for Hermie or not, but I spoke to Sera and she wanted me to ask you to say Mass for him and keep him in your prayers daily. He's still in ICU but is stable right now. He has a team of doctors there who are working to get to the bottom of the situation. His priest visited but he couldn't receive communion as he couldn't take anything by mouth, however he did annoint him.

Sera also asked that everyone of sincere heart please pray for him.
