SSPX District Great Britain does not correct University of Bristol video : same error as Archbishop Lefebvre
The Society of St.Pius X (SSPX) District Great Britain does not correct the error on the video of the Catholic Bishop's Conference of England and Wales and that of the University of Bristol,England .In this video Prof. Gavin D'Costa says all do not need to enter the Catholic Church according to Vatican Council II.For him those saved with ' a ray of the Truth' or seeds of the Word' are explicit,visible to the naked eye and whom one can meet personally. So they are exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
There is no correction since even Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre assumed that these cases were explicit, seen in the flesh.This is possibly also the irrationality of Fr. Paul Morgan, District Superior,Great Britain.
On the video Gavin D'Costa ,a Catholic professor of theology informs everyone that the Catholic Church after Vatican Council II no more teaches that every needs to enter the Church.The Church no more says, for him, that all need to convert.He infers that there is a change in the traditional teaching after Vatican Council II.This change for him is mentioned in the text of Vatican Council II.
Gavin D'Costa specifies that a person can be saved with 'a ray of the Truth' (Nostra Aetate 2) and 'seeds of the Word' (AG 11).So for him these cases of the deceased-saved are exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (since they are visible in 2014). They would have to be visible for them to be exceptions.
There as no been no comment on this issue from Fr.Paul Morgan.
How can he correct this error on the promotional video of the secular University of Bristol ?. Archbishop Lefebvre made the same mistake. He assumed that the baptism of of desire was an exception to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. He also infers that Nostra Aetate 2 was an exception to exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church. For him these cases were explicit , seen in the flesh and so they were exceptions to Tradition.If he considered these cases implicit for us and explicit only for God, Vatican Council II would not contradict the traditional teaching on other religions and ecumenism.The Council would affirm the traditional interpretation of Fr.Leonard Feeney of Boston.
This same error is made by Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the SSPX in his last Letter to Friends and Benefactors. This Letter is published on the website of the SSPX Great Britain.
For the SSPX priests in Great Britain these cases of the deceased,would be exceptions to the dogma . So there is no comment or correction,made by the District Superior.
