The Fatima Center's Rapid Response Team In Rome!
Such "ecumenical gatherings" are forbidden and condemned by the constant teaching of the Church because these events expose Catholics to false doctrine and practice, and also imply to non-Catholic participants that there is no need to convert to the one true Church for salvation.
The dogma, extra Ecclesiam nulla salus – "outside the Church there is no salvation" is firmly rooted in the teaching of Holy Scripture, the unanimous agreement of the Church Fathers, the ancient Creeds, and the infallible definitions of Councils and Popes.http://www.fatima.org/rrt/2017/rome/rome.asp
The Fatima Network like the other traditionalists are repeating the error made by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre after Vatican Council II and before the excommunication of the SSPX bishops.They are unable to interpret Vatican Council II, the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus, the baptism of desire and blood and being saved in invincible ignorance - WITHOUT THE IRRATIONAL PREMISE, without assume invisible cases are visible, without wrongly assuming hypothetical cases are not hypothetical in this case.
ARE YOU A TRAD WHO REJECTS VATICAN COUNCIL II ?
Often because of their mistake people ask me if I am a traditionalist when I affirm extra ecclesiam nulla salus.Since even the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the communities of Fr. Leonard Feeney in Worcester-Manchester USA, interpret Vatican Council II with irrational Cushingism instead of traditional Feeneyism.
Chris Ferrara has said that there are no 'practical exceptions' to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. This was not said by Cardinal Ratzinger and Archbishop Lefebvre, neither did any pope clarify this since the error was made during the pontificate of Pope Pius XII.
So the Fatima Network in Rome says the following while excluding Vatican Council II and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. in support of extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
The dogma, extra Ecclesiam nulla salus – "outside the Church there is no salvation" is firmly rooted in the teaching of Holy Scripture, the unanimous agreement of the Church Fathers, the ancient Creeds, and the infallible definitions of Councils and Popes.
Here are relevant passages missed out by them.
Therefore, all must be converted to Him, made known by the Church's preaching, and all must be incorporated into Him by baptism and into the Church which is His body. For Christ Himself "by stressing in express language the necessity of faith and baptism (cf. Mark 16:16; John 3:5), at the same time confirmed the necessity of the Church, into which men enter by baptism, as by a door.-Ad Gentes 7, Vatican Council II.
Here Vatican Council II is saying all need faith and baptism for salvation.Outside the Church there is no salvation.
Here the Council made a mistake when it refers to those saved in inculpable ignorance, which are non-existent cases and not exceptions to EENS.
Therefore those men cannot be saved, who though aware that God, through Jesus Christ founded the Church as something necessary, still do not wish to enter into it, or to persevere in it." Therefore though God in ways known to Himself can lead those inculpably ignorant of the Gospel to find that faith without which it is impossible to please Him- Ad Gentes 7,Vatican Council II
To interpret the passage in red as referring to known cases in the present times; invisible people being visible; hypothetical cases being de facto and concrete exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus and the passage in blue is irrational.This I call Cushingism.
To interpret the passage in red as referring to unknown cases for humans,invisible and hypothetical for us and known only to God if they exist, are not explicit and objectively visible to be exceptions or relevant to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus and the passage in blue.This I call Feeneyism.
The Fatima Network unlike Archbishop Lefebvre, can interpret Vatican Council II with Feeneyism and cite the Council text (AG 7, LG 14) as a reference to support the 'strict interpretation' of the dogma as it was known to the 16th century missionaries.
Once this is done they can organise inter faith meetings and proclaim the Catholic faith with correct doctrine.Dialogue and mission will not be separated.-Lionel Andrades
