What exactly does it mean “I remain with Bergoglio”??? This is a profoundly odd statement to make from the former Prefect of the Doctrine of the Faith, especially under the present circumstances. It is a statement void of any discernible context, and frankly strikes me as cowardly. At best, naive. “There is a risk of separation, which could become a schism.” Are you kidding me? This cannot be taken seriously. The statement itself acknowledges the very schism he seems to fear, but does not recognize: “I remain with Bergoglio.” This substantiates that others do not remain with Bergoglio. I REMAIN + I DO NOT REMAIN = SCHISM.
Whether we will admit it or not, the Schism is more than official! What is now unfolding is the situation that every single priest and Bishop must face precisely because Bergoglio, playing the role of pope, has declined to clarify it. They individually must answer the question because he refuses to: “Dear Father, at what point does a mortal sin dissipate into thin air, as if it never existed? Is it a function of time, dear Father? A function of my own conscience? Can it be wiped away as long as I vigorously defend the theory of climate change? Help a wounded bird?
I will say it again. The CONFUSION itself which has been created, nurtured, and allowed to remain under the reign of Bergoglio IS THE SCHISM!!!! We need not look for a headline in the Times screaming “EXTRA!!! EXTRA!!!! “The Schism has now officially arrived!!” If that’s what we are waiting for….some official announcement…we will have missed the boat.
He has DIVIDED the Church, and is not going to turn back. There is no other way to look at it. And, as I have said before, Benedict XVI is the only man on Earth who has the authority to correct the confusion. And mark my words, he will.
Take Courage and Pray with Confidence. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are with us. Trust.
