I was replying to the Hamburglar, and it reminded me of something.
Years ago, I had been reflecting on Mary’s role in Jesus’ redemptrive mission. I don’t know who it was, but I remember someone telling me, “Write down what I am going to tell you…” And I did. I didn’t know if what I had written was theologically correct, so I checked some Church documents, and, as it turns out, it was correct.
I remember, a few days after this, I got a sudden urge to tell people about this message. I don’t know where it came from, but it just came over. I was afraid, because I didn’t want to reveal the message; I thought it would be uncharitable, a blow against humility. But I decided to do it anyways. I created an article on Wikipedia about Mary as Co-Redemptrix, and inserted into it the very message I had received.
But then I got attacked by lots of doubts, which kept telling me not to spread the message, because it was wrong and I was stupid for believing it. The doubts becam so overwhelming that I submitted the message to EWTN, asking them if it was correct. I was told it was, and the priest who answered gave a clarification. I added this clarification to the message on Wikipedia’s article. (The article, by the way, has since been a battle ground)
My question is, did I sin?
