Vatican Council II has an error : secular journalists, cardinals and bishops don't know what to do

Vatican Council II has an error and religion journalists, the secular media and even cardinals and bishops, when informed, don't know how to handle it.

It was wrongly assumed that there were known cases of the baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance.Since it was assumed that these cases were explicit, objectively visible, they were placed with the paragraphs which say 'all', need 'faith and baptism', in the present times.So they were seen as exceptions to all needing faith and baptism, for salvation.
This could have been an oversight but it is not so for religion correspondents today who assume this oversight is a reference to exceptions in the present times, to all needing faith and baptism, all needing to formally enter the Catholic Church.
Even Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger as Prefect of the  Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) assumed that this placing of baptism of desire etc along with orthodox statements, was an exception to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS).B contradicted A ( see below)

They know that the rejection of EENS is at the centre of leftist ideology. It was only with a false premise (visible cases of the baptism of desire), an irrationality, that it was possible to project Vatican Council II as contradicting the dogma on exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church.

Leonard Feeney in Boston for not accepting exceptions, to the old ecclesiology.Fine, then it only means that the Holy Office/Magisterium made an objective mistake.There are no known exceptions, past or present.We humans cannot see, meet or identify, people in Heaven ( or on earth) saved without the baptism of water in the Catholic Church.
This is not something new and original which I am saying . This was known to others also in the Catholic Church.They have been saying the same thing.They may have been brushed aside by considering the error academic, theoretical, theological and irrelevant- but we see today that it is has practical consequences, in the secular and professional reporting of Vatican Council II.
It also means Pope John Paul II and Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger wrongly excommunicated Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, for rejecting Vatican Council II with the exceptions. While they, the Magisterium, accepted a heretical version of Vatican Council II.
Related imageArchbishop Lefebvre was correct and he was not shown the alternative  interpretation of Vatican Council II.
The Magisterium did not announce that Vatican Council II supports the strict interpretation of EENS.
Even today,the Magisterium and the Jesuits, do not admit that Fr. Leonard Feeney  was correct( there are no exceptions) while they were wrong with Cushingism ( there are exceptions). The Magisterium and the Jesuits made a doctrinal and factual mistake. Who among the journalists and cardinals and bishops, I ask myself, is going to be the first to report it.
No one wants to do it.

Therefore, all must be converted to Him, made known by the Church's preaching, and all must be incorporated into Him by baptism and into the Church which is His body. For Christ Himself "by stressing in express language the necessity of faith and baptism (cf. Mark 16:16; John 3:5), at the same time confirmed the necessity of the Church, into which men enter by baptism, as by a door. Therefore those men cannot be saved, who though aware that God, through Jesus Christ founded the Church as something necessary, still do not wish to enter into it, or to persevere in it." Therefore though God in ways known to Himself can lead those inculpably ignorant of the Gospel to find that faith without which it is impossible to please Him -Ad Gentes7, Vatican Council II

This Sacred Council wishes to turn its attention firstly to the Catholic faithful. Basing itself upon Sacred Scripture and Tradition, it teaches that the Church, now sojourning on earth as an exile, is necessary for salvation. Christ, present to us in His Body, which is the Church, is the one Mediator and the unique way of salvation. In explicit terms He Himself affirmed the necessity of faith and baptism(124) and thereby affirmed also the necessity of the Church, for through baptism as through a door men enter the Church. Whosoever, therefore, knowing that the Catholic Church was made necessary by Christ, would refuse to enter or to remain in it, could not be saved...
Catechumens who, moved by the Holy Spirit, seek with explicit intention to be incorporated into the Church are by that very intention joined with her. With love and solicitude Mother Church already embraces them as her own.- Lumen Gentium 14, Vatican Council II


Questions and Answers : Did the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 make a factual mistake ?

Members of the St. Francis of Assisi School choir from Ann Arbor sing a selection during a March 19 festival sponsored by the American Federation Pueri Cantores at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament.Did the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 make a factual mistake and so school children in the Archdiocese of Detroit have to use an irrationality to interpret Vatican Council II ?
