|Our Lady, Theotokos and protector, pray for us.
Bishop Athanasius Schneider recently stated in an interview on French TV that "schism alreadyexists in the Church." He also said, "We are witnessing in our time an ambiguity of such scope only comparable to the general confusion of the Arian crisis of the fourth century.' He said this about clerics who are undermining Church doctrine:
All of these ecclesiastics who want another gospel, meaning a right-to-divorce gospel, a gospel of sexual liberty — in short a gospel without God’s sixth commandment. These ecclesiastics make use of all evil means, that is to say ruses, deceptions, masterful rhetoric and dialectics, and even the tactic of intimidation and moral violence in order to attain the goal of admitting so-called “remarried” divorcés to Holy Communion, without the latter fulfilling the condition of living in perfect continence, a condition required by divine law.
Once the objective is attained, even if limited to so called exceptional cases of discernment, the door is opened to introducing the gospel of divorce, the gospel without the sixth commandment. And this will no longer be the Gospel of Jesus, but an anti-gospel, a gospel according to this world, even if such a gospel be cosmetically embellished with terms such as “mercy”, “maternal solicitude” or “accompaniment”.What will all this infidelity int he heart of the Church do? An 18th century mystic, Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora, had visions of the great apostasy and saw heard Our Lady withdrawing her prayers for mercy on a world deeply deserving of the Lord's justice. Are you living the Fatima messages? We can reduce the chastisement by our prayers and by conforming our lives to God's will. Blessed Elizabeth, pray for us.
In this context we must remember an apostolic exhortation of St Paul who said, “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be anathema”. (Galatians 1:8).
