What happens if I go to my local parish priest and tell him that I don't believe in the Marian assumption.Will I get ex-communicated if I don't change my mind?
>>15631239you don´t like vaginas? are you gay?
>We pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.>If a baptised person deliberately denies or doubts a dogma properly so-called, he is guilty of the sin of heresy [...], and automatically becomes subject to the punishment of excommunication".Who knows if they'll actually practice the official position
>>15631239He probably won't care.
>>15631287Well yeah lmao, that's why I'm asking.>or doubtsThis part especially, he specifically says OR DOUBTS
What I want to know is whether this excommunication is time dependent, or if one's eternal state doesn't depend upon a doctrine being promulgated (you know, like the gospel)If it was defined as dogma in 1950 and your catholic grandma died in 1949, not believing in the assumption, is she damned?
>>15631239My sunday school teachers openly said Mary wasn't a virgin and that Jesus did not make superpower miracles like with the breads and fishes.You'll be fine, Anon
>>15631476Yes, from a Catholic country
>>15631239jesus will smite you
>>15631239He'll most likely dialogue with you on it because believe it or not priests are rational-thinking human beings toot. have considered becoming a priest myself
>>15631287This. There are some parishes anymore that would probably let you remain even if you weren’t trinitarian.
