Willing Shepherds of Jesus Christ

Being deprived of the divine life through separation from the Body through which the life of the Divine Head flows is just as bad no matter what the reason for it.

This is a pretty bold statement. Have you considered it sufficiently? There are even saints who followed an anti-pope…they certainly did not reject the papacy…and they gave their allegience to a false pope. Do you put them outside the Church as well?
