Cardinal Gerhard Müller "Amoris laetitia is very clear in its doctrine"
Fr. Gobbi's prophetic messages on the division of the Church for these times are being fulfilled:
170. The third sign: division
February 11, 1979
Anniversary of the Apparition at Lourdes
"... Today my Immaculate Heart trembles and is anguished to see the division within the Church.
This division, which has penetrated the Church, is the third sign which indicates to you with certainty that the final moment of her painful purification has come.
If, in the course of the centuries, the Church has many times been torn by division which has led many of my children to separate themselves from her, I nevertheless obtained from Jesus the singular privilege of her interior unity.
But in these times, my Adversary has, with his smoke, succeeded in darkening even the light of this divine prerogative of the Church.
This interior division is manifesting itself even among the faithful who often set themselves one against the other, in an attempt to defend and better promote the truth. Thus the truth is betrayed by even them, as the Gospel of my Son cannot be divided.
This interior division sometimes even leads Priests to set themselves against Priests, Bishops against Bishops, and Cardinals against Cardinals, for never before as in these times has Satan so succeeded in finding his way into their midst, rending asunder the precious bond of their mutual Love.
This interior division is expressed by the tendency to leave to himself and to abandon, so to speak, the very Vicar of Jesus, the Pope, who is a son particularly Loved and enlightened by Me.
My Mother's Heart is wounded to see how the silence and neglect of my children often envelop the words and actions of the Holy Father, while he is increasingly struck and impeded by his adversaries.
Because of this interior division, his very ministry is not sufficiently supported and furthered by the whole Church whom Jesus has wanted to be united about the successor of Peter.
My motherly Heart grieves to see how even some Pastors refuse to let themselves be guided by his enlightening and trustworthy words.
The first way of being separated from the Pope is that of open rebellion. But there is also another way, more subtle and dangerous. It is that of proclaiming one's unity openly, but of dissenting from him interiorly, letting his teaching fall into a void and, in practice, doing the contrary of what he says.
Oh, Church, mystical body of my Jesus, in your painful journey to Calvary, you have reached the eleventh station and you see yourself wrenched and torn in your members, which are again nailed to the Cross!
What must you do, my sons, apostles of my Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart? You must become a hidden seed, ready even to die for the internal unity of the Church.
And so I am leading you each day to a very great love for, and fidelity to, the Pope and the Church united to him. For this reason I am now letting you share in the anxiety of my motherly Heart; for this reason I am forming you in the heroism of sanctity and leading you with Me up Calvary. Through you also, I will be able to help the Church emerge from her painful purification, so that in her all the splendour of her restored unity may be manifest to the world."
John 3:27; John 15:5; Matthew 19:26
