Franciscans of the Immaculate Lay Association intervention needed

Pope Francis has been permitting the Traditional Latin Mass so at the the Superiors meeting next month, we can expect Fr.Sabino Ardito SDB, the new Commissar of the Franciscans of the Immaculate, to lift the three year ban.
However the issue is still ecclesiology and Vatican Council II, the same issue, as with the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) and the sedevacantists.
In all their discussions and hopes to reach an understanding I think these Three Simple Points were not discussed.They are central to reaching a consensus on Catholic doctrine.
How they are answered determines ecclesiology, old and new, with or without the hermenutic of continuity.
The Three Simple Points identify the doctrinal error which came into the Catholic Church un-noticed.They help avoid the mistake and confusion, if the questions are answered rationally.
Three Simple Points
The three questions are:-
1) Do we personally know the dead now saved in invincible ignorance, a good conscience (LG 16) etc,can we see them, are they physically visible to us in 2015 ?

2) Could Catholics in the past see persons in Heaven, saved with the baptism of desire or martyrdom, without the baptism of water? Would this be possible in Baltimore in 1808 or Boston, USA in 1949?
3) Since we do not know any of these cases, in real life, they are not visible for us, there are no known exceptions to the literal interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus, or Ad Gentes 7 which states 'all' need 'faith and baptism' for salvation ?
 These questions may seem un-related to theology, and they are, however they refer to the reasoning , upon which the New Theology and New Ecclesiology is built. They point out to theology being rational or irrational. 
If the Lay Association could get Fr.Sabino Ardito's attention and ask him to answer these questions, which are not being answered by the Secretary General of the Franciscans of the Immaculate over the last three years, then we are one step closer to a doctrinal clarification and reconciliation; one step closer to unity.
May be they could get his attention  through some of their media contacts, or place announcements in the media or contact him directly.

 Franciscans of the Immaculate Lay Association now has the resources to get its message across and affect a reconciliation
