Traditionalists and sedevacantists need to affirm Catholic moral and salvation theology by avoiding the irrational inference, the mix up between what is visible and invisible.

Kasper: Pope Intends “Not to Preserve Everything as it has Been”  
On 22 April, Cardinal Walter Kasper gave yet another interview about Pope Francis and his reforms. This time, he spoke with the German regional newspaper Aachener Zeitung. In this interview, the German cardinal made some candid — indeed, bold — statements which are very important in the context of the current situation of the Catholic Church.
Kasper speaks about the further Church-reform plans of Pope Francis and his intention “not to preserve everything as it has been of old.”
'his intention “not to preserve everything as it has been of old.”
He can do this by assuming hypothetical cases are known exceptions to the traditional teaching on faith and morals.This is how the change was made in Vatican Council II and Amoris Laetitia.

The traditionalists and sedevacantists  need to affirm Catholic moral and salvation theology by avoiding the irrational inference, the mix up between what is visible and invisible.In this way they can preserve the old without rejecting Vatican Council II.

With Pope Francis, “things are not any more so abstract and permeated with suspicion, as it was the case in earlier times” within the Church. When asked whether there is also a new tone within the Church, Kasper answers: “Yes, a new tone.”
The traditionalists  need to re-interpret Vatican Council II.Lumen Gentium 16 ( invincible ignorance/conscience) as must refer to invisible and not visible cases.The content and 'tone' of Vatican Council II will then change.It could come as a helpless surprise for Cardinal Kasper.

The liberals then cannot use Vatican Council II as a whip.Instead Cardinal Kasper could be asked to affirm Vatican Council II rationally i.e LG 16 etc refer to invisible and not visible cases.So Vatican Council II would not be in conflict with the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus, according to the 16th century missionaries.

 He also responds in a more positive way to the question as to whether the German Bishops’ Conference now have a “tail wind” and says: “Certainly.”
Certainly since the conservative Catholic writers are also viewing Vatican Council II and mortal sin has having known exceptions, as being a break with the traditional teaching.
Imagine the surprise of the German cardinals if the SSPX or the sedevacantists announced :-
1. There is nothing in Vatican to contradict the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS) according to the 16th century missionaries. Since LG 16, LG 8, UR 3, NA 2 etc refer to invisible for us cases and not visible people in 2016. So theories of situation ethics, subjectivism made objective and known exceptions to EENS should not be applied to LG 16 etc.They should not be applied to the interpretation of Vatican Council II.
So there is no change in the old ecclesiology according to the text of Vatican Council II with this rational interpretation, in which hypothetical cases are simply hypothetical, theoretical cases are not objectively visible.
2.There are no known exceptions to the traditional teaching on mortal sin.The conditions of mortal sin mentioned in the Catechism of the Catholic Church are hypothetical. They cannot be exceptions. Pastorally we cannot know of someone who is living in mortal sin , who will not go to Hell if he dies immediately. We cannot pastorally say that someone in mortal sin will not go to Hell for certain subjective or social reasons.

If Cardinal Kasper agrees and affirms that there are no known exceptions to the dogma EENS he would be saying Vatican Council II indicates all Jews and Muslims need 'faith and baptism' (AG 7, LG 14) to avoid Hell and there are no exceptions.This will be difficult for him! He would also be saying Catholics who marry non Catholics are living in adultery. Their spouse is outside the Church and  on the way to Hell .Since there is no known salvation outside the Church mentioned in Vatican Council II.It means Protestants cannot receive the Eucharist in even exceptional cases.The Masons will not accept all this. So Cardinal Kasper will not be able to say any more that doctrine has not changed. He will not be able to accept the old doctrine.

That a Protestant can receive the Eucharist in an emergency is an error of Cardinal Ratzinger as Prefect of the CDF.He did not beleve in the dogma EENS. He confirmed it as Pope Benedict in the interview with Avvenire when he said that EENS is no more like in the 16th century. It has 'developed' with Vatican Council II. He means it has developed for him and Cardinal Kasper, when they interpret hypothethical cases in Vatican Council II (LG 16, LG 8, UR 3 etc)  as referring to objectively and personally known persons.Persons saved without the baptism of water in the Cathoic Church.It is only with this irrationality, of being able to see people in Heaven who are exceptions,can there be a 'development of doctrine' for the both of them.So since there is salvation outside the Church for him,  Cardinal Ratzinger makes an exception for Protestants.A future pope can remove this insertion in canon law.

If Cardinal Ksper and the Vatican Curia says that there there are no known exceptions to the teaching on mortal sin this would contradict the moral theology being taught at Catholic universities and seminaries.It would contradict Amoris Laetitia.

A corretion would also have to be made with regard to Vatican Council II.When Lumen Gentium 14 refers to those who know about the Church and do not enter and who will be Condemned it is a mistake.It has come from the objective error in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 to the Archbishop of Boston relative to Fr.Leonard Feeney.So much of Vatican Council II ( UR 3, LG 16, AG 11(seeds of the Word), LG 8 etc ) is based on the factual error in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 which mixes up what is invisible as being visible.The result is a new doctrine expressed in Vatican Council II.

We can preserve everything as it has been by:-
1.Avoiding the irrational inference in moral and salvation theology.
2.Reinterpret Vatican Council II without the irrational inference.
3.Affirm the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus according to the 16th century missionaries in agreement with Vatican Council II, interpreted without the irrational inference of known exceptions, subjectivism and situation ethics theories.-Lionel Andrades
