We celebrated the feast day of Pope Saint Pius X, the great anti-modernist Pope who really contributed to modernism and heresy in the Catholic Church when he overlooked a statement made in the Baltimore Catechism of 1808.
The pope who gave us Lamentabilli and Pascendi and the Oath Against Modernism overlooked the Baltimore Catechism suggesting that there were three baptisms and 1) being saved with implicit desire for the baptism of water for a catechumen who dies before receiving it and also 2) martyrdom, were baptisms like the baptism of water.
The baptism of desire(BOD) and the baptism of blood(BOB) were accepted in the Catechisms of Pope Pius X and no one clarified that BOD and BOB were not visible and repeatable like the baptism of water. They could not be administered and they were unknown to us and known only to God. Also they could be followed by the baptism of water.He let the confusion persist.
BOD and BOB were not related to the Neccesity of the Baptism of Water for all. Yet in the Baltimore Catechism and then in the Catechism of Pope Pius X they were placed in the section on baptism.
We do not know any case of a person being saved without the baptism of water and they were placed in the baptism section as if they were relevant and were exceptions.
Modernists used this error to discard the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
The baptism of desire and blood were considered baptisms during the pontificate of Pope Pius XII and Fr.Leonard Feeney was not defended.This was the Holy Office 1949 promoting modernism.It was the magisterium which was teaching a new doctrine and heresy.
Then being saved in invincible ignorance and with implicit desire is mentioned in Vatican Council II (AG 7,LG 14).It is placed along with orthodox passages which support the dogma saying all need faith and baptism.Why was BOD,BOB and being saved in invincible ignorance placed in Vatican Council II? Since it was assumed that these cases were explicit and so were exceptions to all needing the baptism of water for salvation.Invisible for us cases were considered to be explicit. This is an irrational premise. Then these explicit cases of BOD, BOB and I.I were inferred to be exceptions to all needing the baptism of water for salvation.
This is all modernism and it is magisterial today.Pius X like the other popes contributed to it.
