Today morning Fr. Aldo Rossi, Prior of the Society of St. Pius X, Albano,Italy offered the Traditional Latin Mass(TLM) at the SSPX's St.Catherine of Siena chapel near the Cavour Metro Station in Rome.While elsewhere in Rome the TLM was offered by FSSP priests.
Neither the SSPX priest or the FSSP priests offered the Tridentine Rite Mass as it was offered in pre- Council of Trent times.Since they interpret Catholic doctrine with the new theology.
The new theology is a break with the old ecclesiology based on the strict interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
So at the Latin Mass today we have the liturgical form but not the ancient theology and Catholic doctrines.
Fr.Aldo Rossi may say that he affirms the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS). But he refers to EENS in which there are known exceptions.For him there are people who do not need to enter the Church to be saved. For the SSPX being saved with the baptism of desire,for example, is an exception. It refers to someone in Heaven without the baptism of water.
This is the new theology.
Similarly this is the religious formation of FSSP priests and other priests in general. It is also the religious formation of the Internet Padre, Fr. John Zuhlsdorf and the Dominican priests in Norcia. This is the new theology of the priests of the Institute of Christ the King who also offer the Latin Mass.
So the theology of the Latin Mass today is the same as that of Mass offered in Rome in other languages. The ecclesiology of the priests offering Mass in Italian or English is the same as that of the FSSP and SSPX priests.
For all of them there are exceptions to the traditional salvation theology associated with the 16th century missionaries, when they offered the Latin Mass.
Fr.John Zuhlsdorf has reported of the bishop of Manchester, USA permits the FSSP priests to offer the Latin Mass in his diocese at a new church.They will do this of course with the new ecclesiology of the bishop. He interprets Vatican Council II with hypothetical cases being objectively known. If he would consider hypothetical cases as being only hypothetical, then the Mass in English which Bishop Peter Libasci offers, would have the pre-Council of Trent ecclesiology and it would be sensational.
In the diocese of Manchester the community of Fr. Leonard Feeney, the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, recognised by the bishop, had been attending the Tridentine Rite Mass. They affirm the old ecclesiology on the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. However they interpret Vatican Council II,like Bishop Libasci, as being a rupture with extra ecclesiam nulla salus, as it was known to the 16th century missionaries.
So even though the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary attended the Latin Mass at their community chapel, the ecclesiology of Vatican Council II was a rupture with the past.Their position is the same as the SSPX and FSSP priests in Rome.
I attended the Tridentine Rite Mass today morning and also Mass in Italian in the evening. For me there was no break in ecclesiology.There was no rupture, in my mind, with the pre-Council of Trent ecclesiology. I interpret Vatican Council II in harmony with the strict interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. The old ecclesiology supports an ecumenism of return and is the basis for the teaching on the Social Reign of Christ the King and Religious Liberty.
I couldn't have had it so good!I feel special!
