No mercy for the old ecclesiology

Pope Francis has still closed the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate seminary and now we know that the issue was not the Traditional Latin Mass(TLM) but ecclesiology.TLM is associated with the old ecclesiology.
The seminarians at the former seminary of philosophy at Boccea, Rome were sent to other pontifical seminaries in Rome.There the ecclesiology is new and based on Cardinal Francesco Marchetti Selvaggiani's mistake.Lumen Gentium 16(LG 16) is considered an explcit exception to extra ecclesiam nulla salus and the old ecclesiology.
So all seminarians in Rome now, like Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI, have to accept Pope Pius XII's error.They have to use fantasy theology. They have to assume that the dead-saved  in invincible ignorance(LG 16) are known in the present times.They are objective for us human beings. So they become exceptions to extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS).
Hypothetical cases , known only to God, seminarians must affirm, are defacto and personally known in 2015 , to contradict the teaching on all needing to remain in the Church.The things you have to say and do today to be a Catholic priest!
 Recently Cardinal Wilfrid Napier  and the sedevacantists  Bishop Donald Sanborn  and Fr. Anthony Cekada agreed that we cannot see people in Heaven, in the present times, saved without the baptism  of water.Yet the former FFI seminarians  have to say they can  see the dead. This is if they still want to be priests.
If they do not proclaim this falsehood , then there will be no exceptions in Vatican Council II  to the rigorist intepretation of EENS.Ecclesiology will once again be traditional and rational. It would not be politically correct with the Left. 
Now the seminarians have to affirm an irrational ecclesiology which suggests that the dead for us,  saved in invincible ignorance and the baptism of desire, are visible, so there is salvation outside the Church. Since allegedly there is known salvation outside the Church  every one does not need to be a formal member of the Church for salvation in the present times.
The new irrational ecclesiology is being followed also by the new Salesian Commissar of the Franciscans of the Immaculate.
No clarification or  help can be expected from the Society of St.Pius X (SSPX) and the other traditionalists.Since they are also making the same error, which originated during the pontificate of Pope Pius XII.It was accepted by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Von Hildebrand, Michael Davis and others.The Marchetti error is part of the curriculum in SSPX seminaries too. It can be read in a book published by the SSPX professor of Ecclesioloy at Econe, Fr.Jean Marie Gleize ( Concilio Vaticano II : Un Dibattito Aperto).He has no clue to the cause of the error.
It seemed the same with the former commissar of the FFI, Fr.Fidenzio Volpi OFM cap. He referred to going back to the old ecclesiology as 'crypto Lefebvre'.He did not know what created the new ecclesiology and assumed it was Vatican Council II.He also could have assumed that the liturgy of the old Mass was responsible for the old ecclesiology.It was not.
Traditionalists with the SSPX and MICM do not want to talk about this issue.Sedevacantists on Twiter get angry when they are shown that Pope Pius XII made an objective mistake.They do not want to discuss this issue any more.It would mean all these years they had made a mistake on Vatican Council II.
Meanwhile, a diocesan priest in Rome, who was a formator at the closed seminary in Boccea  and who specialised on EENS academically, is still promoting Marchetti's error.It seems the prudent thing to do.He would give some good homilies at the Church of the Annunziata.
It is now some two years.I have not attended the FFI  Traditional Latin  Mass  at the church of the Annunziata, in Lungotevere, Rome.Pope Francis' ban is still being implemented in that small church.Religious magazines ( Christ to the World) have been suspended and their editorial policy changed.
No mercy for the old ecclesiology.
