The religious community of Fr.Leonard Feeney in Worcester,USA has canonical status and they affirm Vatican Council II with the premise like the two popes.When the SSPX does the same they also will be regularised.
The community of Fr.Leonard Feeney in Manchester,USA,still do not have canonical status but they could be granted it in future.They also affirm Vatican Council II with some reservations.It is the same with Cardinal Raymond Burke, Michael Voris and other conservatives who criticize Vatican Council II but accept it with an irrational premise which makes it a rupture with Tradition. They are approved by the present magisterium.
Then there are tradtionalists like Louie Verrecchio who reject Vatican Council II but still interpret it with an irrational premise.He does not choose Vatican Council II(premise- free) since he still does not fully understand the concept.
None of all of them mentioned here, can state that the two popes are in heresy for rejecting the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Catholic Church.Since all of them have rejected the exclusivist ecclesiology of the Church with their interpretation of Vatican Council II( with the premise) and extra ecclesiam nulla salus ( with the premise).
When the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary(MICM) in the diocese of Worcester affirm Vatican Council II with the premise, they negate the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus as it was interpreted by Fr. Leonard Feeney.Since, LG 16, LG 8, UR 3 etc are seen by them as visible and known cases, saved outside the Church. So they become exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS).Then they reject Vatican Council II.However they are also implying that invincible ignorance(LG 16) etc refer to known people saved outside the Church and so this is why they reject Vatican Council II.If they are known people saved outside the Church they are exceptions to EENS too.So they are rejecting Feeneyism.This is why they are approved by the bishop of the diocese and the Vatican.
Not for me.Being saved in invincible ignorance is not an exception to the dogma for me.
They do not seem to know about Vatican Council II( premise -free).The MICM at the St.Benedict Center, Worcester do not state that LG 16, LG 8, UR 3 etc refer to invisible people in 2017 and so these references are not exceptions to the dogma EENS.There is no announcement from them saying Vatican Council II is Feeneyite and in harmony with the missionaries of the 16th century, so they do not have a problem with the Council.This is good news for them.Their present irrational and non traditional interpretation of the Council is welcomed by the Jewish Left, the two popes and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.It is politically correct.It is not orthodox Catholic doctrine and theology.
The MICM communites know that Feeneyism is in harmony with the magisterium of the 16th century which did not know about the false premise.They know that to be a Catholic is to be a Feeneyite. To be a traditionalist is to be a Feeneyite.Feeneyism is part of the Catholic identity.
If the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the St.Benedict Center at Still River,Mass.,USA ,would announce that they affirm Vatican Council II without the irrational premise there would be a stir.If they announce that they interpret hypothetical cases as just being hypothetical ; LG 16 is not an exception to EENS there would be confusion at the Vatican, the Archdiocese of Boston and the rest of New England,USA.This would be seen as a rebellion. This is not the acceptable understanding between Catholic religious communities canonically recognised, and the popes and cardinals, who have all chosen the irrational premise.
If the MICM state that they affirm all magisterial documents, including Vatican Council II, however interpret them all without the innovative premise,which is the basis for the new theology, and so are back to the old ecclesiology of the Church upon which depended the old theology of an ecumenism of return and the need for all non Christians to be incorporated into the Church as members for salvation, there canonical status may be withdrawn. Once again they would disparagingly be called 'Feeneyites'.
They would be considered a bad example for other religious communities like the Franciscans, Dominicans, Carmelities, Redemptorists etc.They have always been granted canonical status since they interpret all magisterial documents with the false premise to create a non traditional conclusion.-Lionel Andrades
