Rabbi teaches error at the Angelicum

The Angelicum has employed a rabbi who is teaching errors to Catholic students.
At the University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum), Rome  the rabbi who teaches ecumenism, will not admit, it seems, that there are no known exceptions to the dogma  extra ecclesiam nulla salus. He will not teach that there are no known exceptions to the dogma mentioned  in Vatican Council II.
Vatican Council II does not contradict the traditional teaching on ecumenism and other religions but he is not going to teach it.
The Catholic Church's teaching on ecumenism, the subject he teaches, has not changed.He will not admit it.
This rabbi also protested to  Rorate Caeili (New Catholic) when this issue  was discussed by Rorate.Since then Rorate  has maintained a politically correct taboo on this subject.
Pope John Paul II's Ut Unum Sint tells us that Christian communities and churches must accept the authority of the pope and be united with the Catholic Church.
Vatican Council II (AG 7) says all need faith and baptism  for salvation.This includes  all Christians  who do not have Catholic Faith. For salvation  Protestants , Pentecostals  etc  need to enter the Catholic Church,'as through a door'.(CCC 846, AG 7 etc). It is possible that a Protestant can be saved in imperfect communion with the Church(UR 3). However we do not know any such case in 2013  for UR 3 to be an exception to AG 7 ( all need faith and baptism). So those saved in imperfect communion  with the Church (UR 3) , seeds of the Word (AG  11) and elements of sanctification and truth (LG 8) are not known exceptions to extra ecclesiam nulla salus.

So when the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 during the pontificate of Pope Pius XII, mentioned  implicit desire  and being saved in invincible ignorance, this was not an exception  to 'the dogma', the 'infallible teching' also mentioned in the Letter.Fr.Leonard Feeney was excommunicated for disobedience according to the Letter. The Church did not  ask him  to recant  since he was not in heresy. It was the Archbishop and the Jesuits in Boston who really were in heresy for claiming there were known exceptions to a defined dogma, even when they could not name these exceptions.
The rabbi supports his error by citing liberal sources at the Vatican's Council for Christian Unity, who also  make this objective error. This can be seen in  an article/talk given by Cardinal Walter Kaspar and posted on the website of the Council for Christian Unity. Cardinal Kaspar, the report shows, assumes Pope Pius XII  faulted  Fr. Leonard Feeney  , for his 'rigorist interpretation' of the dogma.This theory  could have originated in a Freemason Lodge.
Since the Letter does not say that implicit desire etc are known to us in the present times or that they are exceptions to the traditional interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
Cardinal Kaspar assumes that there are known exceptions and then builds his theology on this objective error.Vatican Council II appears 'ambigous' and liberal for him and the traditional teaching on ecumenism and other religions has been discarded. He is using the visible- dead theology of Cardinal Richard Cushing. The rabbi and the faculty at the Angelicum are doing the same.This is repeating a lie even after being infomed.

Opis Dei appoints Mons.Angel Rodriguez Luno as Dean of Theology : prudent priest will not affirm the Catholic Faith.

At the Opus Dei university in Rome, the new Dean of Theology is Mons Angel Rodrigues Luno.Readers of this blog will recall that I had asked him two questions about the Catholic Faith. He refused to answer  them in an e-mail reply  to me. He was the head of the Department of Dogmatic Theology at Opus Dei's University of the Holy Cross.

At issue was the doctorate in theology given or  to be given to Fr. Francesco Giordano whose  subject of study was  outside the church there is no salvation.
The Dean of Theology seems to have been protecting this career or other interests and is denying the Catholic Faith by not affirming it.
Fr. Francesco Giordano was given a Masters Degree in Theology at the University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) Rome by the Rector  Fr. Charles Morerod O.P. Bishop Charles Morerod, now bishop of Lausanne, Switzerland  also personally approved the Italian priest' s thesis with the error of assuming there are known  exceptions to the literal interpretation of the dogma extra eclesiam nulla salus.
Opus Dei  permitted Fr.Giordano, a good priest,  to work for a doctorate  since the same error, unkowingly , is being made by other faculty members.The Opus Dei faculty taught the same error a few years back to a  former Rector of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, Fr.Massimilano dei Gaspari FFI.
Fr.Gaspari now agrees that being saved in invincible ignorance and the baptism of desire are possibilities, probabilities  and not defacto exceptions to the dogma on exclusive salvation.He was never taught this at the university.

Fr. Barron Is Wrong

I would agree with Michael Voris here.Fr.Baron is repeating a common liberal line.
I wish Michael Voris had also mentioned that Vatican Council II indicates the majority of people are going to Hell. Since they do not have Catholic Faith and the baptism of water needed for salvation. (AG 7,LG 14).
Similarly the Catechism of the Catholic Church has this same message in CCC 846.
Then there is the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (Cantate Domino, Council of Florence 1441). Texts from Cantate Domino are also referred to in the Council of Trent.
Traditional interpretations of the dogma by popes and saints also indicate that most people are on the way to Hell.
