From the Catholic Encyclopedia: Schism
Schism is regarded by the Church as a most serious fault, and is punished with the penalties inflicted on heresy, because heresy usually accompanies it. These are: excommunication incurred ipso facto and reserved to the sovereign pontiff (cf. “Apostolicæ Sedis”, I, 3); this is followed by the loss of all ordinary jurisdiction and incapacity to receive any ecclesiastical benefices or dignities whatsoever.
“Between heresy and schism, there is this difference, that heresy perverts dogma, while schism, by rebellion against the bishop, separates from the Church. Nevertheless there is no schism which does not trump up a heresy to justify its departure from the Church .practically and historically, heresy and schism nearly always go hand in hand; schism leads almost invariably to denial of the papal primacy." (In Ep. ad Tit., iii, 10), St. Jerome
"By false doctrines concerning God heretics wound faith, by iniquitous dissensions schismatics deviate from fraternal charity, although they believe what we believe” (On Faith and the Creed 9). St. Augustineessages from Maria Divine mercy since the election of Pope Francis
Schism is occasioned by heresy so that the transgression is complexed in motive and execution to merit nothing less than excommunication, by law and by judgement. Anyone who encourages schism also commits heresy. Maria Divine Mercy is guilty of both.
3/13/13 "I have not appointed this person, who claims to come in My Name,"
3/14/13 "...the imposter, who sits on the throne in My Church on earth, does not come from Me...The time for the schism to be laid bare is close, and already, a terrible unease is being felt in Rome,"
3/15/13, "You must pray for all those who run the Catholic Church. Please include the man who sits in the Chair of Peter...Pray that he will accept the Truth of the death of my Son on the Cross," (How insulting and brash that this message claims Pope Francis does not accept the death of Jesus!), "So infested are they, those who roam the corridors of Rome, that the biggest sign will be seen in the chaos, which will ensue, as they adhere to the command of the imposter,"
3/19/13, "Masonic sects infiltrate the Church in Rome. Make no mistake – there can only be one pope in one lifetime...soon, all will see the subtle acts and the sly gestures of those false imposters who preside over My Throne in Rome, for they amount to sacrilege,"
3/21/13 "The time for the division is soon and you must prepare.
What exactly does this false seer expect to gain for her fake Christ in disparaging the current Pope? The audience of these messages is clearly traditional Catholics to start questioning Church authority. Does this MDM expect the faithful to rise up in arms and storm the Vatican to overthrow the "imposter?" Nothing is more laughable than this, if not for the dangers the poor immortal souls expose themselves to in embracing such heretic disobedience.
All these messages for this heretic Maria Divine Mercy foment schism in the one True Church. While the Catholic Church has survived schismatic movements from the past and will indubitably remain indestructible, Satan continues to fan the schismatic flames that can only lead to the eternal damnation of those who fall for such sensationalist agenda. Abetting the fire is the mainstream and specialized media that has been highly critical of the Pope's action, even putting words into his mouth to twist the truth that unwary Catholics accept without ever using their gift of discernment. But more on that later. It is enough that at this point, we can immediately recognize the words of Satan behind the messages that a scamming Maria Divine Mercy foist as having divine origins.
