Mission Sunday is being celebrated today without the traditional Feeneyite interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.Mission Sunday is not celebrated with the salvation dogma as it was known to the 16th century missionaries.
The present 'living magisterium' considers the past magisterium a 'dead magisterium'.They have changed the teachings on salvation by inferring that there are no known exceptions to the traditional teaching on outside the Church there is no salvation.
The two popes assume invisible cases of the baptism of desire are visible on October 23,2016, Wolrd Mission Day.
According to traditional Catholic teaching based on the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus all non Catholics with no exceptions are oriented to Hell unless they are incorporated visibly into the Catholic Church.So the Native Americans before the missionaries went there were on the way to Hell. In general they were all oriented to Hell without 'faith and baptism'.
The two popes and the Vatican Curia, supported by the political Left, however assume that a person can be saved in invincible ignorance and without the baptism of water. So being saved in invincible ignorance is an exception to the Feeneyite interpretation of the dogma EENS. So Lumen Gentium 14 based on this irrational reasoning, of visible exceptions of people who are now in Heaven, states wrongly that only 'those who know' need to enter the Church. So now it is said that the Native Americans were all saved before the misionaries went there, since they 'did not know'.
It is with this new doctrine that Mission Sunday is being celebrated in the Catholic Church all over the world.
At the church I went to this morning there were photos of Mother Teresa and the emphasis of the posters was on mercy. Mission envelopes were available.
In general the lay people at the Church in answer to a question would say that not evert one needs to enter the Catholic Church for salvation but only those who know.
1.When it is pointed out to them that Jews, Muslims, Orthodox Chrstians and Protestants in Rome are educated and they know about Jesus and the Church so they are all on the way to Hell according to Vatican Council (LG 14) ? There is no answer.
2.If it was mentioned that Vatican Council II says all need faith and baptism for salvation(AG 7) and so all non Catholics in 2016 are oriented to the fires of Hell againthere would be no answer.Or they would object and say that the Church does not teach this any more.This would also be the case with the religious, priests and nuns.-Lionel Andrades
