They believe as they always believed, they live the religious life they always lived.
No, they don't. They once believed that heresy was heresy; that's why they left the Bogus Ordo. These women spent decades serving Our Lord and His Church as sisters faithful to Tradition. They then decided (because they 'prayed' and talked with heretics) that they were 'led' to believe heresy again.
Sorry, but all of the devout 'prayer' and spiritual practices in the world don't lead true Christians to embrace heresy and disobey Holy Church and Her venerable Tradition. Their claim that whatever N.O. group they belong to is "energized by the H*ly Sp*rit" (whatever that means) reeks of the indifference of Protestantism. Go 'pray' and get 'led' by some spirit and everything will be fine.
Fact is, either Montini authorized and issued a new missal in rejection of and disobedience to Quo Primum
, or he didn't. Either Roncalli was a Freemason or he wasn't.
Montini did, and Roncalli was.
Wojtyla and Ratzinger are no better; in fact, they are demonstrably worse heretics than Montini and Roncalli combined.
These women should just either go back to their bongos and their spirit "energy" or drop all that nonsense and return to Tradition. The most sickening thing about that whole article is the sense that they are trying to balance both innovative heresy and so-called reverence. Disgusting.
What about 'buddhists' that have been 'reverently' worshiping a piece of cement? What about Protestants that worship a book and a 'J*sus' that only exists as an amalgam of their particular theological inclinations? Are their religious posturings somehow valid now, because they are reverent and zealous?
Sounds like these women had some misguided reasons to disobey their VALIDLY-ORDAINED SUPERIORS who were (and are) teaching the Faith rightly and in strict adherence to Tradition. Whatever they discovered when they were 'led' to subvert their Bishop's authority by holding clandestine meetings with heretics certainly wasn't of God.
One last thing... all the strictures about prayer postures, smoking, etc... WHY were these women so upset and calling these things 'cult-like'? Was Francis of Assisi cult-like when he mortified himself in even more severe ways? How about Gemma Galgani? I thought the point of having spiritual directors in the Church who are your superiors was precisely IN ORDER that they DIRECT you to mortify pride and take stock of your actions, thoughts and speech.
Poor, deluded, compromised women. May Our Lord Jesus, through the intercession of St. Clare and St. John Vianney, engender in these women once again a humble submission to holy, consecrated life in the One Church and save them from these mortally sinful choices.
