I'm still here.

I honestly can't believe I have neglected making even the smallest of posts for just about 21 or so days. Life has been busy, Our Lord had plans for me. I never got to wish you all a Happy All Souls day, nor an All Saints.

I missed posting about the canonisation of St Kateri Tekakwitha, or of any the new saints. The current situation with the SSPX, our Holy Father, and the recent happenings.

I hope you understand that life takes hold, in particular my end of the stick has been shaking the past month. I went to a performance of Faure's Requiem which I cannot wait to tell you all about.

So please, stay tuned.

WASHINGTON POST REPORT ON SSPX WRONG ON CATHOLIC DOCTRINE

There is a Washington Post report with the same factual errors on Vatican Council II and the SSPX and there is no clarification from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith or the Ecclesia Dei.Explicit implicit salvation is not Catholic doctrine.

The report says
Pope tells SSPX traditionalists they must accept Second Vatican Council By Alessandro Speciale

1.

The SSPX has said that they accept Vatican Council II as an historical event.Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre participated in it. At issue is the interpretation of Vatican Council II with the visible dead premise.

There is no known salvation outside the church, every on earth needs faith and baptism for salvation(AG 7). The text of Vatican Council II or the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 does not state that there is known salvation.It does not make this non traditional claim.Yet the media implies it does and Catholics assume that this is a fact and the Vatican does not issue a correction.

Implicit desire is part of the deposit of the faith, explicit implicit desire is not.The Washington Post correspondent assumes Vatican Council II mentions explicit exceptions to Tradition.

The Washington Post report says:

The SSPX rejects the modernizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), including church acceptance of ecumenism and religious freedom, and its rejection of anti-Semitism
2.
Vatican Council II (AG 7) is in agreement with the Catholic Church's traditional teaching on other religions and ecumenism. All need Catholic faith and the baptism of water for salvation(AG 7). So Vatican Council II agrees with the Society of St.Pius ( SSPX ) traditional position on this issue- unless one assumes there are known cases of the deceased saved. This is the error of the writer of the report. Since we cannot see the dead LG 16 (invincible ignorance/ good conscience), LG 8 ( elements of sanctification),AG 11(seeds of the word) etc,.do not contradict AG 7 or the dogma on exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church.So Vatican Council II has not changed the Catholics Church's teachings on other religions as the media reports.

This report is similar to the one written by the Reuters Religious Editor .He also assumes the dead who are saved are visible on earth.So he implies these deceased are explicit exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus i.e Vatican Council II contradicts the dogma and the Syllabus of Errors .

There was no clarification from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and Ecclesia Dei. It needed to be clarified that implicit salvation is never explicit for us .We cannot see the deceased on earth.Vatican Council II does not state that these cases are visible or that they contradict the salvation dogma.-Lionel Andrades
