St. Catherine's Advice to Cdl. Burke: Do Correction even if it Brings Schism

St. Catherine of Sienna was in the same situation that Cardinal Raymond Burke is now.

Catherine knew what Cld. Burke knows which is that if God's will is done, in terms of speaking the truth and reforming the Church, there will be a schism.

He fears that if he does God's will and issues the correction to Pope Francis that there will be a schism.

The Cardinal needs to take the advice of St. Catherine who is not only one of the greatest saints in history, but a Doctor of the Church.

Do God's will no matter the consequences. Do God's will even if it brings about a schism.

She knew that if she did God's will and got the French Pope Gregory XI to leave the French court of Avignon and return to Rome that there would be a schism.

Catherine knew that as long as Gregory stayed in France that would be no "reform" of "the morals of the clergy" and that the corrupt inner circle of the papacy would get more corrupt leading to the loss of more souls.

In Nobel Prize winner Sigrid Undset's biography "Catherine of Sienna," Undset reports:

"Catherine replied: 'Who knows God's will so well as your Holiness, for have you not bound yourself by a vow---' Greatly shaken, Gregory stared at the young woman. He had made a vow that he would return to to Rome if he were chosen to be Pope--- it was while he was still cardinal. But he had not told a living soul. From that moment he knew he would leave Avignon." (Page 210)

Undset's biography shows the saint knew that her getting the Pope to leave Avignon would bring about a schism:

"Catherine replied... 'When the Pope really begins to reform the morals of the clergy they will rebel and split the Church.' No, there would be no new heresy, there would be schism. And she said to Raimondo and his friends that they would live to see this horror." (Page 194-195)

"Catherine had foreseen the schism. When she received the news of it, she must have known that her longing to throw herself into the tumult of battle would soon be fulfilled... she had still much to do here on earth. Because she knew the time was approaching when she should depart from this life." (Page 259)

St. Catherine reveal to Cardinal Burke that he will soon be departing from this life to meet the Living God. He must do God's will and not fear a schism.

Pray that the Cardinal correct Pope Francis so more souls are not lost.

St. Catherine we ask you to pray that Cardinal Burke correct Pope Francis.

Pray a Our Father now for this intention.


Answer to a comment below:

Might it be God's will for a cardinal to issue a correction to defend the glory of God, His Church and the very words taught by the Son of God Jesus Christ to a Pope:

Who claims it is "authentic Magisterium" to contradict the very words of the Son of God and the infallible Revelation He gave to His Church.

Who claims it is "authentic Magisterium" to contradict all Popes, all Tradition by admitting to Holy Communion those committing the sexual act of adultery in violation of the Sixth Commandment which St. Pope John Paul II taught was "intrinsically impossible."
(Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, "Concerning Some Objections to the Teachings on the Reception of Holy Communion by Divorce and Remarried Members of the Faithful," Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, www.vatican.va)

We ask you Mary, Mother of God, St. Joseph and St. Catherine to pray that the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ cover and flood the minds and hearts all the Cardinals, Bishops, clergy, religious and laity that they defend the glory of God and the truths of the Son of God Jesus Christ's Revelation.

Pray one Our Father and the following prayer now for this intention.

Constant Prayer of St. Catherine to the Precious Blood of Jesus:

Precious Blood, ocean of Divine Mercy: Flow upon us!

Precious Blood most pure offering: Procure us every grace!

Precious Blood, hope and refuge of sinners: Atone for us!

Precious Blood, delight of holy souls: Draw us! Amen.

-St. Catherine of Sienna-

Hi Fred, With the non-profit organization, Mary's Advocates, I work to reduce unilateral no-fault divorce and support those who are unjustly abandoned. We are already in defacto schism, as priests, bishops and canonists (to whom is entrusted the moral and just relations amongst the faithful) disregard our own canon law about separation of spouses and divorce. Cardinal Burke, if he was still the Prefect of the Signatura, might have been able to do something about the problem. I'd like to contact you via e-mail but could not find yours. Will you please write me .

Thank you,

How do you know he's not doing God's will now, that is, not "correcting"? Has God spoken to you and revealed His will for Cardinal Burke? If so, why do you not say, "Cardinal Burke, God told me to tell you ..."? Now that's what St. Catherine could do. Can you?

I'm not arguing for or against any action. I'm just tired of the peanut gallery believing they know what God's will is for someone to do. It's easy to say "Go and do" when you don't have the responsibility for the consequences.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
