Cardinal Sarah in a speech to the Sacra Liturgia conference in London yesterday invited priests to start celebrating (the New Mass of Paul VI) facing the liturgical east (versus Deum), that is, facing the altar.
“It is very important that we return as soon as possible to a common orientation, of priests and the faithful turned together in the same direction – eastwards or at least towards the apse – to the Lord who comes.” ... “I ask you to implement this practice wherever possible.”
He said that “prudence” and catechesis would be necessary, but told pastors to have “confidence that this is something good for the Church, something good for our people”.
“Your own pastoral judgement will determine how and when this is possible, but perhaps beginning this on the first Sunday of Advent this year, when we attend ‘the Lord who will come’ and ‘who will not delay’.”1
It is ecclesiology which determines the faith of the people. It is the dogmas and doctrines of the Church which decide how we pray and worship and believe during Mass.So Pope Francis and Cardinal Robert Sarah do not consider the Mass as ideological per se.A Catholic priest can face the liturgical east, like the Orthodox Christian priests still do, and it is not a problem for them. The priest however is not allowed to affirm the old ecclesiology which determines what we believe and how we worship during Holy Mass.
There is no permission for Cardinal Sarah to affirm the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS) as it was done in pre-Council of Trent times i.e with no exceptions.He has to affirm EENS as having exceptions. The exceptions are the baptism of desire etc.So EENS (Feeneyite) has to be replaced with EENS( Cushingite) when offering Holy Mass in any Rite.
Cardinal Sarah and priests when they offer Holy Mass must believe that EENS has developed with hypothetical cases no more being hypothetical.This is the strange philosophy that the popes are imposing on Catholics.
Ecclesiology is important since we are being prepated to adapt to the Jewish Left , one world religion.
Pope Francis would not permit Cardinal Sarah or Archbishop Pozzo to say that the SSPX could offer the Latin Mass and also accept Vatican Council II with the old ecclesiology.Yes they can offer the Latin Mass - but it has to be with the new ecclesiology.This makes Vatican Council II a break with the traditional teachings on ecumenism, other religions, exclusive salvation in the Church, religious liberty , the non separation of Church and State and the Social Reign of Christ the King over all political legislation.
I attend Mass in Italian, English,Latin and Greek and interpret Vatican Council II with Feeneyism and the old ecclesiology.
Whether I attend the Latin or Italian Mass I know there is nothing in Vatican Council II to contradict the rigorist interpretation of the dogma EENS according to the 16th century missionaries. This is what I believe during Mass. This is my concept of Faith. This is how I worship at Mass knowing that in Heaven there are only Catholics and this is the only Church of God in which all need to enter for salvation. They all need to visibly enter the Catholic Church, as they physically entered the Ark of Noah.
Vatican Council II has not 'developed' for me since LG 16 etc refer not to visible but invisible cases in 2016.There can be no new theology for me since there are no known cases of persons saved outside the Church.There are no explicit cases of being saved in invincible ignorance.
There can be no known Anonymous Christian for me since there can be no known case of someone saved without faith and baptism in the Catholic Church.We can speculate, hope and hypothesize but it would finally only be speculation.It would not be a concrete example of salvation outside the Church.
So why cannot Cardinal Sarah attend Mass like I do?
The ecclesiology of the Mass will still be an innovation with Cushingism.There still is big confusion on the Nicene Creed ( Feeneyite or Cushingite), EENS, Vatican Council II ( Feeneyite or Cushingite) and the Catechism
