I was doing some editing for the men sponsoring this website - until I noticed that they feature on their website a video made by “holyfamilymonatery.com” (to which one is also led through vaticancatholic.com). THAT website virulently attacks the current pope and Pope John Paul II, among other things. When I objected to “saintbirgitta”, they DEFENDED this schismatic link. They also challenged me to prove the charges of heresy leveled at Pope Benedict wrong.
So, I watched that particular video (made by “Brother” Michael Dimond) very carefully, pausing it and taking notes. I then sought out the books from which he quoted the pope (then Cardinal Ratzinger). I have about nine books and have searched for the quotations in about six of them and, as I suspected, every quotation was taken out of context.
I am compiling a refutation by using fuller excerpts from the quoted passages, which I will soon send to the “three monks” at saintbirgitta.com. If they still refuse to sever their link to the Dimond website, we will know that - although the Revelations of Saint Bridget of Sweden may be accurate and edifying (if translated accurately) - the “brothers” making this work their own life work will have, by persisting in their association with the Dimond brothers, affirmed that they are schismatics who support attacks on the Church which are of the most vile variety.
I AM POSTING THIS BECAUSE I SEE THAT SOME ARE CONFUSED ABOUT THE CATHOLICITY OF SAINTBIRGITTA.COM. I DO NOT CLAIM THEY ARE SCHISMATIC - AS YET - BUT IF THEY PERSIST IN SUPPORTING THE VILE ATTACKS ON THE CHURCH BY THE DIMOND BROTHERS, WHOSE LINK THEY PROVIDE, THEN THEY WILL CERTAINLY BE JUST AS GUILTY OF SCHISM. LET THIS POST BE A WARNING TO ALL WHO MAY BE LED TO SAINTBIRGITTA.COM THAT, BY ASSOCIATION, THEIR “MISSION” CANNOT BE AUTHENTIC OR SUCCESSFUL UNLESS THEY RELENT AND WITHDRAW THIS SCHISMATIC ASSOCIATION AND SUBMIT THEIR “RULE” TO THE CHURCH.
