No denial from Phillip Pullela and Nicole Winfield

There is no denial from Nicole Winfield and Phillip Pullela, correspondents of Associated Press(AP) and Reuters to the blog post which I tweeted them.The report was titled 'Phillip Pullela and Nicole Winfield have been interpreting Vatican Council II with the Baltimore Catechism error'.
Without the irrational inference from the 1808 Baltimore Catechism, Vatican Council II does not contradict the Feeneyite version of extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS) and the old exclusivist ecclesiology.
The contemporary Magisterium overlooked a factual error in the Baltimore Catechism and then also in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 in the Boston Case.
It is a fact of life that we cannot see or know people who are in Heaven as we see and know people on earth.Persons saved without the baptism of water are not visible on earth. Those saved in invincible ignorance (I.I) or the baptism of desire (BOD) are invisible cases in 2015.We cannot administer them  baptism as we can the baptism of water.They are not concrete and known in personal cases as in the case of the baptism of water.So they cannot be considered baptisms like the baptism of water in daily life and nor can they be considered exceptions all needing the baptism of water in the present times.Practically they do not exist.
Yet they were placed in the Baltimore Catechism in the section on Baptism and its necessity and it was inferred that they were exceptions to all needing the baptism of water which is a dogmatic teaching.
Similarly today LG 16, LG 8, UR 3, NA 2 etc in Vatican Council II is assumed to be referring to visible, instead of invisible cases.So Vatican Council II(LG 16 etc) becomes a break with the exclusivist ecclesiology of EENS.
 It is because of the inference(explicit-implicit) that Vatican Council II emerges as a break with the Syllabus of Errors and EENS.
So if the Reuters and AP correspondents would interpret LG 6 etc as being invisible for us , since this is rational, then Vatican Council II does not contradict EENS and the traditional teaching on other religions and Christian communities.
The ecclesiology of the Church would be the same before and after Vatican Council II.
Nicole Winfield can no more say that the SSPX rejects the 'reforms' of Vatican Council II, since 'the reforms' are there only when LG 16 is explicit.
 There is no 'revolution' ushered in by Vatican Council II if Phillip Pullela considers LG 16  invisible for us in 2015.
They also mention that Archbishop Lefebvre  was excommunicated , without saying that he was excommunicated for not accepting Vatican Council II with LG 16 explicit.
They now know that the SSPX can accept Vatican Council II and also the old ecclesiology. They have an option.
So far there is no comment from the AP and Reuters correspondents to these blog posts which I have sent them.

NJ archbishop sets rules for barring Catholics from Communion

ROME (RNS) Even as Pope Francis and Catholic leaders from around the world debate ways to make the Catholic Church more inclusive, Newark Archbishop John Myers has given his priests strict guidelines on refusing Communion to Catholics who, for example, support gay marriage or whose own marriage is not valid in the eyes of the church.
In the two-page memo, Myers also orders parishes and Catholic institutions not to host people or organizations that disagree with church teachings.
He says Catholics, “especially ministers and others who represent the Church, should not participate in or be present at religious events or events intended to endorse or support those who reject or ignore Church teaching and Canon Law.”
The new rules could raise eyebrows given that Francis is currently leading a high-level Vatican summit, called a synod, where he and some 270 bishops are debating whether to let divorced and remarried Catholics receive Communion, and how to be more welcoming to cohabiting and gay couples whose lives don’t conform to Catholic teaching.
The guidelines could also up the ante for the coming election season, when Catholic candidates who support abortion rights or gay rights are sometimes challenged by conservatives over whether they should receive Communion.

A spokesman for Myers said in an email on Tuesday (Oct. 13) that the archbishop saw this as an opportune moment to set out the guidelines for priests in the northern New Jersey archdiocese.
“With so much being generated in the media with regard to issues like same-sex unions and such, this memo about ensuring that Catholic teaching is adhered to in all situations — especially with regard to the use of diocesan properties and facilities — seemed appropriate,” James Goodness, a spokesman for Myers, said in an email.

The memo is titled “Principles to Aid in Preserving and Protecting the Catholic Faith in the Midst of an Increasingly Secular Culture.” It is dated Sept. 22 and was sent to priests this week, according to a source who provided a copy to Religion News Service.

In the memo, Myers writes: “The Church will continue to cherish and welcome her members and invite them to participate in her life to the degree that their personal situation permits them honestly to do so.
“Catholics,” he continues, “must be in a marriage recognized as valid by the Church to receive Holy Communion or the other sacraments. Non-Catholics and any Catholic who publicly rejects Church teaching or discipline, either by public statements or by joining or supporting organizations which do so, are not to receive the Sacraments.”
Myers issued these guidelines even though he is scheduled to retire next July when he turns 75, turning over the reins to Archbishop Bernard Hebda.
In 2013, Francis named Hebda a “coadjutor archbishop” — meaning he would automatically take over when Myers left office — after a series of controversies that angered many priests and parishioners in the 1.4 million-member archdiocese.
In one instance, Myers was criticized for allowing a priest — who was under court order to stay away from children — to work with youths, and in another he was criticized for using church funds to pay for pricey renovations to a retirement home.

Archbishop at Vatican Synod: The Family Today Is ‘Under Ferocious and Enormous Attack’ by ‘Satan’

Archbishop objects to Synod document: 'it doesn't mention attack by Satan'

By Michael W. Chapman | October 13, 2015

of the Hungarian Greek Catholic
One of the Catholic archbishops participating in the Vatican synod on the family objected to the document the bishops are working on because it does not address the fundamental reason for social turmoil, which is that the family today is “under a ferocious and enormous attack” by “the Devil."
The Vatican document – Instrumentum Laboris (working instrument) -- which is more than 22,000 words long, does not even mention “Satan,” “Lucifer,” or the “Devil.” Nor does it mention “demon.”
In his objection, Archbishop Peter Fulop Kocsis, head of the Hungarian Greek Catholic Church, further stressed that “a spiritual struggle is required in order to fight the attacks of Satan in these our times,” and this should be emphasized in the document, as reported the Catholic group Voice of the Family on Oct. 12.
In his objection, or intervention about the document at the synod, currently ongoing at the Vatican, Archbishop Kocsis said that although he was focusing on paragraph eight, chapter one, he sensed “a general deficiency in the text as a whole.”
Many of the paragraphs “speak of a changed society and epoch, calling these difficulties which have appeared in recent times ‘challenges,’” said the archbishop. But “it appears to me that the text misses a clarification which is more precise from its inception, from the root of these changes: From where do they come?”
“The great part of these [changes] are not compatible with the plan of God; they do not come from Him,” said the archbishop. “If it is thus, then it must be said: From where do these changes, these difficulties, derive?”
“We must say with clarity that in our very spoilt world the family and the man of good will with good intentions is under attack, under a ferocious and enormous attack,” said Archbishop Kocsis. “And this attack is of the Devil.”
“We must call these diabolic forces which have a role to play with these phenomena by name because this way we can find some indications even for the research of possible solutions,” he said.

The archbishop then quoted Ephesians 6, 12: “Our battle in fact is not against flesh and blood, but against the Principalities and the Powers, against the dominations of the dark world, against the spirits of evil that live in the celestial regions.
“Thus, we can clearly see that in reality a spiritual struggle is required in order to fight the attacks of Satan in these our times,” said the archbishop.
“I would very much see with favor a marked emphasis of this spiritual struggle, even in the final part of the document where the proposals and possible solutions must be formulated,” he said.
Quoting Ephesians again, the archbishop said, “Take therefore the armor of God, in order that you may resist in the evil day and remain firm after having overcome all of the obstacles.
Paragraph eight of chapter one of the Vatican document is entitled “Cultural Contradictions,” and discusses how “a certain kind of feminism” belittles motherhood, and how some cultural forces want to put a same-sex “relationship” on the “same level as the marital relationship” between one man and one woman.
This produces “confusion” and “relegates the special bond between biological difference (male and female), reproduction and human identity to an individualistic choice,” reads the document.
In addition to not mentioning Satan, Lucifer, the Devil, and demon, the Vatican document on the family does not mention Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory, all of which are integral to the Catholic faith.
