On 22/11/13 this article was in my news feed:
After I read that article, in particular the points about automatic excommunication, I felt an interior silence. It was then time for me to drive my children to school (1/2 hour trip) during which I was pondering what I had just read.
Whilst I was driving, I saw and felt myself being separated from God, and a question was put to me, “Is this what you want?” In response, I had an overwhelming feeling of grief and from the depths of my soul, there issued out a deep cry... ”no!” I cant even begin the utter grief I felt when I cried out “no” to this question. It is something I will never forget. I immediately went to confession on my return home and have since walked away from these messages and their associated prayers.
The Holy Spirit is the author of Canon Law, so would our Lord tell us do do something (in this case rebel against our Holy Father and thereby falling into schism) which violates His own Canon Law thereby excluding us from the sacraments, the very means of our salvation?
It would be ironic if this message was indeed one of the many false prophecies as predicted by Jesus when He said that "many will come in my name".
It is not up to us, the sheep to do anything but pray and trust. If the worst was to eventuate, that we would have an anti-pope, God himself would take care of the matter, just as he will take care of the matter when the Anti-Christ comes around. Don't forget that whatever purification happens, it will be allowed because the Church needs it (as you observe by the mess in the Church today).
What about "pledging allegiance"? We don't pledge allegiance, we consecrate
Up until these messages, I have never heard of these expressions before, the more I ponder them, the more I question, and wonder if this is Satan's way of obtaining allegiance (sneaky as it is) with the promise of paradise just like he promises paradise to those who pledge their allegiance to him in the Masonic Lodges. These and many other questions have plagued me since I turned my back on these messages. Please also view this website http://mariadivinemercytrueorfalse.blogspot.com.au/
If you are are truly seeking the truth, remember deciding to enter into a schism is serious, it is a matter of eternal life or death…
Please… Consider carefully what you are doing.
