Fr.John Zuhlsdorf interprets Vatican Council II with Marchetti's theory so the Council for him is ambigous and a break with extra ecclesiam nulla salus
The dogma and Vatican Coiuncil II (AG 7) say all need to enter the Church for salvation. If there is a sincere Christian who will be saved or is saved,outside the Catholic Church, it would not be known to us.It would not be known to Fr.Z.
The pope refers to those outside the Church who are in ignorance and who will be saved he does not state that they cannot be saved by God sending them a preacher.
He does not say that they are known to him or others in that time.
He does not say that they are explicit exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
This comes to us from the Marchetti Theory. Anyway it does not state in the text that these cases are known to us or that they are exceptions to extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
Fr.Z infers this.
This is a major error in his interpretation of Vatican Council II. Without the Marchetti Theory Vatican Council does not contradict the traditional and 'rigorist' interpretatioin of outside the Church there is no salvation.It is a dogma of the Church and not an aphorism as the Catechism would want us to believe.
Cardinal Marchetti in the first part of the Letter supports the traditional interpretation of the dogma as having no exceptions. In the second part of that controversial letter he suggests that invincible ignorance and implicit desire were exceptions. So he contradicts the first part.
The same error-pattern is there in CCC 1257, On the Necessity of Baptism.It says God is not limited to the Sacraments and also the Church knows of no means to eternal beatitude other than the baptism of water. In other words all need the baptism of water but some do not.This is contrary to the Principle of Non Contradiction.It reflects the Marchetti Error.
This same error Fr.John Zuhlsdorf uses to interpret Vatican Council II as a break with extra ecclesiam nulla salus, the Syllabus or Errors and the Catechism, of Pope Pius X.-Lionel Andrades
