Magisterial heresy on the feast of the Baptism of Our Lord

On the Feast of the baptism of Our Lord we must remember that for centuries the Church taught that baptism in the Catholic Church was necessary for salvation.This was the theological ecclesiocentrism of the Catholic Church.It is now rejected by the magisterium and most Catholics.
This was rejected in Redemptoris Missio by Cardinal Ratzinger who refers to ' a presumed ecclesioctrism of the past'.He rejects the ecclesiocentrism of the past by assuming that all historical references to the baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance refer to explicit cases of someone saved without the baptism of water. So when St.Thomas Aquinas mentions the man in the forest saved in invincible ignorance ( after a preacher arrives) this is a known case for Cardinal Ratzinger. He has re- interpreted being saved in invincible ignorance. 
Similarly when the saints and popes mention these cases of the baptism of desire etc they do not state that they were known. This is something obvious. These are invisible cases for us human beings. 
However for the liberal theologians these were not invisible cases in the past or present. To say that there was exclusivist ecclesiocentrism in the past, would be considered 'presumptous' by Cardinal Ratzinger.
So the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1995) does not mention the dogma EENS, defined by three Church Councils.It refers to outside the church there is no salvation as being only an 'aphorism'(CCC 846)
So for the two popes every one does not need the baptism of water in the Catholic Church for salvation as Jesus teaches us in the Bible.
Pope Francis in Laudato Si presented the necessity of proclaiming the kerygma without the necessity of being a member of the Church for salvation.
Then in March 2016 Pope Benedict's  interview conducted by the Belgian Jesuit, Jacques Servais, director of the Casa Balthasar in Rome was published in Avvenire. Father Servais was under Cardinal Ratzinger from 1985-1990 an official in the CDF and from 1993-1996, the professor of dogmatic theology at the Institute of John Paul II in Rome. He has published works on Cardinal Newman, Hans Urs von Balthasar and Adrienne von Speyr.1
In this interview the pope said that EENS is no more like it was in the 16th century.It means every one does not need the baptism of water in the Catholic Church for salvation.
Pope Benedict was also saying that he would not interpret Vatican Council II in line with Feeneyite EENS even though it was possible.
He was also saying for me, that at the time of the rejection of Vatican Council II by Archbishop Lefebvre he was not ready to interpret Vatican Council II in line with Feeneyite EENS and the Syllabus of Errors. Instead he chose a rupture with Tradition even when he had a choice.

He approved the excommunication of Archbishop Lefebvre even though the interpretation of Vatican Council by the magisterium was irrational and non traditional. It was a rupture with EENS according to the 16th century missionaries and the three Church Councils and this was magisterial heresy.
So on the feast of the baptism of Our Lord today the Church teaches that there is known salvation outside the Church ( even though there are no specific cases) and every one does not need the baptism of water in the Catholic Church for salvation.This is irrational since there are no known cases.
This is magisterial irrationality that Cardinal Ratzinger was trying to maintain during the excommunication of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.

The magisterium teaches that LG 16 ( invincible ignorance) and LG 14( baptism of desire without the baptism of water) refer to known cases.This is their official interpretation of Vatican Council II. So this is a rupture with the Church Councils of the past on EENS.It is a negation of the teachings of the Holy Spirit over the centuries. This is irrational since invisible cases cannot be visible exceptions to Tradition. This is also heretical.It is magisterium versus magisterium.

So today at Mass when we affirmed our faith saying we renounce Satan etc Catholics had a new understanding of the Nicene Creed. Unlike for me, for them all it meant, 'I believe in three known baptisms for the forgiveness of sin, the baptism of water, desire and blood'. For me there can only be one known baptism for the forgiveness of sin, the baptism of water.We cannot  see a baptism of desire case.Nor can we administer the baptism of desire, as we can the baptism of water.

So we all say 'We believe in one, holy, Catholic and apostolic church' but mean two different things.
It is one, holy and apostolic Church with or without the new theology based on invisible people being allegedly visible.
I do not use the new theology but every one has accepted the new theology of Pope Benedict and Fr. Karl Rahner. 
This is the difference between you and me.
The magisterium is still in heresy and the heresy is being officially maintained throughout the Church on the feast of the Baptism of Our Lord.
