Dr.Robert Fastiggi overlooks the objective error in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 and the injustice done to the St.Benedict Center and Fr. Leonard Feeney and he calls it 'a development of doctrine'.The same players at Boston in 1949 were there at Vatican Council II.They repeated the irrational reasoning and he has only praise.He cannot say that the popes and cardinals at Vatican Council II mistook imaginary people as being real.They then used this opportunity to change doctrine and theology in the Church.The present two popes, have accepted the factual mistake.But Fastiggi will not say it.Even the faculty at the Sacred Heart Major Seminary,Detroit, where he teaches, all agree.There are no known cases of the baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance in 2017. None.But he will not say it.
There were none last year.So when Pope Benedict said EENS was no more like it was for the missionaries in the 16th century, there were none.So there could be no 'development of doctrine 'for me with Vatican Council II ( premise-free)
The professors and Rector in Detroit know that there were no known cases of the baptism of desire, blood and being saved in invincible ignorance in 2015,2014,2013,2011 and the years earlier.None.
So how can there be practical exceptions to Feeneyite EENS in Vatican Council II and how can there be a development of doctrine? Fastiggi is mixing up LG 16, UR 3 etc as referring to known people.He infers that these known people are saved outside the Church.But these are really hypothetical and theoretical references?!
In my e-mail correspondence with the faculty at the Sacred Heart Major Seminary over the last few months,from what they say and do not, it is clear that they all agree on the obvious.None of them personally knows of any exception to the dogma EENS as it was known to the missionaries in the 16th century.
So Vatican Council II supports Feeneyite EENS with Ad Gentes saying all need faith and baptism for salvation.It does not contradict the 16th century missionaries, with invisible cases of LG 16, LG 8, UR 3, GS 22 etc allegedly being visible.Invisible people cannot be practical exceptions to EENS in 2017.
If one interprets Vatican Council II with Feeneyite EENS( no visible exceptions) then there is no development of doctrine.But if one interprets EENS according to the Holy Office(CDF) in 1949 then there is a new theology and new doctrines.Fastiggi is supporting this innovation in the video.
I avoid the magisterial mistake. Like Dr. Fastiggi I can attend Holy Mass in English but unlike him I can affirm 'the rigorist interpretation' of the dogma EENS.This is what they did at the 16th century Latin Mass.So for me there can be no change in ecclesiology.I do not have to attend the Tridentine Rite Mass to say all Hindus, Buddhists, Jews and Muslims in Detroit, and the rest of the world in 2017, are on the way to Hell, with no known exceptions.I attend Mass in Italian and know(because the Church teaches it through Vatican Council II) that all non Catholics need to enter the Catholic Church with 'faith and baptism' for salvation(Ad Gentes 7).So this year most people are oriented to the fires of Hell since they have died without faith and baptism.
I do not have to go into sedevacantism or reject Vatican Council II like the SSPX. I remain in the Church and affirm the old exclusivist ecclesiology on salvation.Neither do I have to be a liberal like Fastiggi who has to interpret Vatican Council II with fantasy theology and philosophical gymnastics like imaginary people being non imaginary and we can see people in Heaven and on earth at the same time, contradicting the Principle of Non Contradiction.I do not have to reject Vatican Council II as a rupture with Tradition(EENS,Syllabus of Errors, ecumenism of return etc) as Fastiggi does and doesn't know when he is in heresy.
I am also free, not being encumbered with the premise, to say that Pope Benedict was in heresy last March 2016,as is Pope Francis and Dr. Fastiggi today, when they reject the dogma EENS( premise free) and Vatican Council II ( premise free), which I affirm as a good Catholic. I will not create new doctrines with a false premise and then pretend it is the deposit of the faith.
It is interesting- Catholic students and seminarians at Detroit are taught that there are visible and known exceptions, past and present, to the dogma EENS, while the faculty believe and know that there are no such cases.The students are not told the truth.If they knew they would agree with the obvious.Church Militant TV in Detroit could ask them about it.Michael Voris once asked Fr. Jonathan Morris, former Legion of Christ priest, to let us know who today does not need to enter the Church for salvation ? Fr. Morris of course was using the Holy Office 1949, visible-exceptions theology.
For the Catholic students to get an academic degree at Detroit they too chant the socialist, communist, Masonic slogans approved by the Jewish Left rabbis, for the Catholic Church.They must allow the heresy to spread and remain like at the time of Arius.
I think it is important now, for members of the Focolares, Neo Catehumenale Way, Catholic Charismatic Renewals and other lay movements, to understand all this.They are free to evangelize and do mission like the missionaries in the 16th century.Vatican Council II is Feeneyite.It means all the pagans in the Americas before Columbus, were on the way to Hell before the missionaries went there.All the natives in the Portughese colony of Goa were lost before St. Francis Xavier went there. Invincible ignorance is not the norm but needing faith and baptism is.This point went pass Fastiggi it can be seen on the video.The Jesuits in the 16th century had it right.
Even the Jews in the Old Testament times, like Abraham and Moses had to wait for the Resurrection before they could go to Heaven.
Today all non Catholic-Christians, according to Vatican Council II (AG 7),need Catholic faith to avoid the fires of Hell.They need the Sacraments and the faith and moral teachings of the Catholic Church.All Protestants, Pentecostals and Orthodox Christians are oriented to Hell unless they enter the Catholic Church as members.If there are exceptions it would be known only to God.For Fastiggi, the exceptions are the rule and they are known to God alone.So like Bishop Barron he could wrongly say that we have a reasonable hope that most men are saved.
Being a Christian, like a Catholic in mortal, does not necessarily mean one is saved.All non Catholic Christians need to convert into the only Church founded by Jesus, outside of which there is no salvation. Catholics are the new people of God, the Chosen People (Nostra Aetate 4).There are only Catholics in Heaven.
The New Evangelisation of the two popes is based on the Letter of the Holy Office, lay movements must observe with caution. It is flawed.It is heretical.It is not the work of the Holy Spirit.
We now have the option to evangelise with the same doctrines and theology of the Jesuits in the middle ages, in harmony with Vatican Council II, interpreted without the false premise.-Lionel Andrades
