They affirm the strict interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS) with the baptism of desire not being an explict exception.This was the original teaching of Fr.Leonard Feeney.So for the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary all non Catholics in 2017 would need to convert into the Catholic Church as members, for salvation.This is also the understanding of the dogma outside the Church there is no salvation according to the magisterium and missionaries of the 16th century.
The MICM are traditionalists who attend/offer the Tridentine Rite Mass and affirm the past ecclesiology with an ecumenism of return.
The Decree of the Bishop of Worcester opens the possibility for other Catholic religious communities, even those who offer only the Novus Ordo Mass, to also affirm the traditional interpretation of the dogma EENS with the baptism of desire(BOD),baptism of blood(BOB) and being saved in invincible ignorance(I.I), accepted as possibilities known only to God but not practical exceptions to the dogmatic teaching on all needing 'faith and baptism'(AG 7) for salvation.
All religious communities, can affirm the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS in harmony with Vatican Council II, also interpreted with BOD,BOB, I.I and LG 16, UR 3 ,LG 8,NA 2 etc not being visible and known exceptions to EENS.
So for canonical status Catholic religious communities can now also affirm Vatican Council II with LG 16, LG 8, UR 3, GS 22,NA 2 etc referring to hypothetical cases and not examples of known salvation; actual people saved outside the Church in the present times (2017).Theoretical cases are not exceptions to Feeneyite EENS.There is nothing in Vatican Council II to contradict EENS as it was defined by the three Church Councils.
This means the way is open, in the Catholic Church, for the Society of St.Pius X (SSPX) to doctrinally re-affirm their 2012 General Chapter Statement which endorsed EENS ( premise-free).It supported Feeneyite EENS which is the basis of the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Catholic Church.
This religious community at the St.Benedict Center, Still River, MA though, is still interpreting Vatican Council II with the irrational premise and so it is a rupture with EENS( premise-free).This is a negation of the dogma EENS according to Fr. Leonard Feeney.When LG 16, LG 8, UR 3 etc are exceptions to EENS and Vatican Council II becomes a rupture with Tradition(Syllabus of Errors etc) then it means,theologically, for the MICM, there are known people saved outside the Church.There are known exceptions to the dogma EENS.This was the wrong understanding of the Letter of the Holy Office 1949.Feeneyite EENS is replaced with Cushingite EENS.EENS(premise-free) is rejected for EENS with the premise i.e invisible people are visible on earth.Invisible cases of the baptism of desire are visible.Unknown people in 2017 are known examples of salvation outside the Church.People in Heaven can also be seen on earth.
The dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (Cantae Dominio, Council of Florence 1441) tells us all need to be members of the Catholic Church for salvation and there are no known exceptions.If Vatican Council II is a rupture with EENS for the MICM, then they imply that there are known exceptions to the dogma EENS( Feeneyite).This would be irrational, non traditional and heretical.However it is also magisterial in Worcester and the Vatican.It is the doctrinal position of Bishop Robert McManus and his Curia and also religious sisters of the Worcester Women's Leadership Conference.-Lionel Andrades
