Can a priest ever acceptable break the vow of silence from a confession.


I just saw a tv show that asked a morale question. If a roman catholic priest hears a confession, can he reveal it if the revelation will protect an innocent. Is the vow invalid if the confessor isn't sincere in his repentance.
