The Bishop of Portsmouth,England has established a bi-ritual parish in Gosport, a town on the South coast near Portsmouth where Fr Serafino Lanzetta will be Parish Priest according to Rorate Caeili.
Fr.Serafina Lanzetta a professor of theology of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate will offer the Traditional Latin Mass.
I have briefly corresponded with him.Of course it will be the Traditional Latin Mass with the old ecclesiology.
He was not aware of Ad Gentes 7 saying all need faith and baptism similiar to the teaching of extra ecclesiam nulla salus and that there were no exceptions to AG 7 and the dogma, in Vatican Council II.
He accepts the new ecclesiology since for him being saved in invincible ignorance (I.I) and the baptism of desire (BOD) would refer to visible in the flesh cases, in the present times.
He uses this irrational premise, also in the interpretation of magisterial documents including Vatican Council II.
He is not aware of the error of Pope Pius XII and the Holy Office in 1949.Since he makes the same error in his theology.
So this is a rejection of the old EENS ecclesiology, which was air tight. It said all needed to be formal members of the Church. There were no exceptions mentioned.Now there is a loophole with the new ecclesiology.It suggests all do not need to convert into the Church in the present times, since allegedly there are known exceptions in Heaven.They are saved without the baptism of water in the Catholic Church.
All this is irrational yet it is the basis of his theology; the new theology.Fr.Serafina accepts this and offers the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) like the bishop and priests in his new diocese.
If he did not accept the new ecclesiology the Vatican would not allow him to be incardinated in Potrsmouth.This is the obedient line followed by the FSSP.
His new diocese is liberal and rejects Feeneyism.Feeneyism is politically incorrect now.It once was the centuries old dogmatic teaching of the Catholic Church.It originated from Jesus' teachings in John 3:5, Mark 16:16 etc.
Fr.Lanzetta the author of books on Vatican Council II, is appreciated by the liberals too.Since he presents Vatican Council II as a break with the past. With Marchetti's irrational inference it has to be a break with the past.
Instead, in his new diocese outside Italy he should be saying there are no known exceptions in the present times (2015) to the 'rigorist interpretation' of extra ecclesiam nulla salus.However this will not be possible officially. Since the bishop has restricted him pastorally.
The BOD and being saved in I.I are posibilities ( followed by the baptism of water according to the dogma EENS) but are known only to God.They are invisible for us in 2015.So they are not relevant to EENS. The Holy Office 1949 made a mistake in the Letter of the Holy Office to the Archbishop of Boston.
So all in England in 2015 need to convert into the Catholic Church with no known exceptions, to go to Heaven and avoid Hell. For salvation every one needs to have his name in the parish register... they will not tell you this at Portsmouth.-Lionel Andrades
