I have heard a Priest call many parishes who purposely destroy the liturgy through innovation schismatics or psuedo-schismatic. Now I am wondering about the definition of schism.
A parish that tinkers with the liturgy knowingly and willingly - are they schismatics due to the fact that they knowingly and willingly ignore the Bishop of Rome and the Magisterium?
“Heretics bring sentence upon themselves since they by their own choice withdraw from the Church, a withdrawal which, since they are aware of it, constitutes damnation. Between heresy and schism there is this difference: that heresy involves perverse doctrine, while schism separates one from the Church on account of disagreement with the bishop. Nevertheless, there is no schism which does not trump up a heresy to justify its departure from the Church” (Commentary on Titus 3:10–11 [A.D. 386]).
Thanks in advance!
