Are the Dubia Cardinals Sinning if they don't Correct Pope Francis?

-Update August 15, 2017-

Are the Dubia Cardinals sinning if they don't correct Pope Francis?

St. Thomas Aquinas in the Summa Theologiae said:

"If the faith were endangered a subject ought to rebuke his prelate even publicly. Hence Paul, who was Peter's subject,  rebuked in public, on account of the imminent danger of scandal concerning faith." (Summa Theologiae II-IIae, 33,4,2)

Ought means it is a moral obligation.

Has Amoris Laetitia become a imminent danger of scandal concerning the faith?

Cardinal Gerhard Muller's attempt to take control of the narrative of Amoris Laetitia without correcting Pope Francis has failed.

Francis's firing of Muller is apparently saying he thinks he can change the Divine Law.

Muller has said, over and over again, even a Pope could not change Divine Law by allowing those in adultery to receive Communion.

The message of the firing appears to be:

Those in adultery who are divorced and "remarried" can receive Holy Communion contrary to Divine Law.

In 2016, one of the four Cardinals, Walter Brandmuller said:

"Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic and promotes schism."

Where are the Dubia Cardinals?

They are in hiding like the Apostles were after Jesus' resurrection and ascension into heaven.

What can we do?

Remember, the Apostles after they prayed nine days with Mother Mary got the actual graces to face death fearlessly. 

I'm going to begin a simple novena to Mary under her title of Our Lady of Fatima starting today.

This novena is prayed to ask Our Lady to intercede with her spouse the Holy Spirit to send actual graces to the Dubia Cardinals to issue the correction to Pope Francis.

I ask everyone who reads this to pray one Hail Mary for nine days for this intention.
