The Society of St.Pius X (SSPX) General Chapter Statement (July 19,2012) shows that they can accept Vatican Council with the hermeneutic of continuity.
It’s simple. All they have to do is get rid of the Richard Cushing error and then interpret the Council. It would mean Lumen Gentium 16 is not an exception to Ad Gentes 7 or the dogma on exclusive salvation. Imperfect communion, seeds of the Word, a good conscience do not contradict extra ecclesiam nulla salus as interpreted by the SSPX Chapter statement.
With there being no exceptions to the dogma on salvation we have AG 7 in accord with extra ecclesiam nulla salus and . Vatican Council II affirming the thrice defined dogma. So then the Council has to be in agreement with the Syllabus of Errors.
It’s time for the SSPX to play their trump card and show the world how Vatican Council II can be interpreted according to Tradition, without the irrational Cushing error and with the hermeneutic of continuity.
Here is part of the General Chapter statement with comments.
For this reason it seems opportune that we reaffirm our faith in the Roman Catholic Church, the unique Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ, outside of which there is no salvation nor possibility to find the means leading to salvation;
Lionel: Here the SSPX is affirming the defined dogma in accord with Vatican Council II and without the Richard Cushing of being able to see the dead alive, who are supposed to be exceptions to the dogma on salvation.
our faith in its monarchical constitution, desired by Our Lord himself, by which the supreme power of government over the universal Church belongs only to the Pope, Vicar of Christ on earth; our faith in the universal Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Creator of both the natural and the supernatural orders, to Whom every man and every society must submit.
Lionel: They are affirming their allegiance to the pope and recognizing the Kingship of Christ. This is in accord with Vatican Council II which says outside the church there is no salvation (AG 7) and hence there is the obligation for all non Catholics to be a visible member of the Church. A consequence of this belief for religious liberty is that all non Catholics have the moral obligation to enter the Church.
The Society continues to uphold the declarations and the teachings of the constant Magisterium of the Church
Lionel: The Society affirms the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus as it was interpreted for centuries and according to the July 19, 2012 statement. It affirms the Syllabus of Errors which is part of the constant Magisterium of the Church.
in regard to all the novelties of the Second Vatican Council which remain tainted with errors, and also in regard to the reforms issued from it.
Lionel: So it affirms the constant Magisterium and rejects the novelties that have emerged with the Richard Cushing Error.
We find our sure guide in this uninterrupted Magisterium which, by its teaching authority, transmits the revealed Deposit of Faith in perfect harmony with the truths that the entire Church has professed, always and everywhere.
Lionel: This Deposit of Faith is in accord with Vatican Council II without the Cushing Error and in harmony with the dogma on salvation and the Syllabus.
The Society finds its guide as well in the constant Tradition of the Church, which transmits and will transmit until the end of times the teachings required to preserve the Faith and the salvation of souls,
Lionel: This Tradition of the Church exists in Vatican Council II when it is in accord with the dogma on salvation and is without the error from Richard Cushing. This Tradition of the Church will not exist in Vatican Council II with the Cushing error and when the Council is not part of the constant Tradition of the Church. The SSPX will continue to criticize this interpretation of the Council in all its manifestations.
while waiting for the day when an open and serious debate will be possible which may allow the return to Tradition of the ecclesiastical authorities
Lionel: They await an open and serious debate by the ecclesiastical authorities on the Richard Cushing Error. This will open the possibility for all to accept Vatican Council II with the hermeneutic of continuity and with a return to Tradition of the ecclesiastical authorities.
Vatican Council II says outside the Church there is no salvation and is in agreement with the Syllabus of Errors, Mystici Corporis,Quanto Conficiamus etc.
