Bishop Michael Campbell and the Lancaster diocese interprets the Catechism of the Catholic Church with an irrationality
Bishop Michael Campbell the bishop of Lancaster, England expects all in the diocese to interpret the Catechism of the Catholic Church with an irrational premise.The same is expected of Vatican Council II.
Catechists and participants in the Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS) (1) have to allege that CCC 846 ( all need to enter the Church as through a door) is contradicted by CCC 847,848 ( there are known exceptions of those saved in invincible ignorance). So all do not need to enter the Church as through a door. It is Yes and No!
Similarly in Catechetical programs it is taught that Vatican Council II contradicts itself. Ad Gentes 7 says all need faith and baptism for salvation while Lumen Gentium 16 states, it is implied, that all do not need faith and baptism for salvation since there are (known) exceptions saved in invincible ignorance or with a good conscience.
The Catechism and Vatican Council II contradict them self and each other, it is taught at Catholic educational institutions, with a mandatum given by Bishop Michael Campbell.
On the Protect the Pope blog there is so much confusion on this subject. While some are not not aware of this issue in a discussion others do not want to talk about it.All these years it has been part of their irrational formation, that Vatican Council II and the Catechism of the Catholic Church contradicts itself and also contradict the magisterium of the past.
When they assume that CCC 847 and 848 are an exception to CCC 846 they imply that there are on earth the dead-saved, who are visible exceptions to all Tradition. If they did not use this irrationality, then Bishop Michael Campbell would be affirming the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus as being in accord with the Catechism (1993) and Vatican Council II. Without this irrational premise of being able to see the dead saved, he does not have to say that the Catechism of Pope Pius X is in perfect accord with the Catechism of the Catholic Church of Pope John Paul II.
Since the bishop and the diocese use this irrationality, on the diocese website it is not stated that there is exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church. There is a whole section on 'The Church', which omits this important point.
Neither is it affirmed based on Vatican Council II and the Catechism (1993) that all non Catholics need to enter the Catholic Church to avoid the fires of Hell and that the majority of people on earth, non Catholics, are oriented there, since they do not have faith and baptism at the time of death.
No where in the Catechism (1993) or Vatican Council II is it mentioned that we can see the dead-saved who are exceptions to Tradition and all needing 'to enter the Church as through a door'. Neither does the Catechism of the Catholic Church state in the text that all those who are saved through Jesus and the Church (CCC 846) are known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. So what is implied has no reference in the text.
They are possibilities for salvation but they are not exceptions to all needing to enter the Church visibly (with faith and baptism) in 2014 to avoid Hell and go to Heaven.
It is with irrationality of being able to see the dead-saved that the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 to the Archbishop of Boston is interpreted. In no document of Pope Pius XII is it stated that there are known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. Yet this error is implied in the Diocese of Lancaster.
