When the Franciscans of the Immaculate, before the crisis began for them, insisted on offering the Traditional Latin Mass and not accepting Vatican Council II, which for them was a rupture with the past, they were influenced at that time, by Prof. Roberto dei Mattei, Fr. Serafino Lanzetta etc.
This was at that time.
But now we know that Vatican Council II is in harmony with St. Augustine, St.Thomas Aquinas , Pope Boniface VIII etc on outside the Catholic Church there is no salvation. 1
Vatican Council II is no more like it is interpreted by the Society of St. Pius X(SSPX) or the Bologna School.
It is no more like it is interpreted and known to Fr. Lanzetta, Roberto dei Mattei and others.
So when Cardinal Braz de Avez and Archbishop Jose Carbello asks them to affirm Vatican Council II he is really saying affirm Vatican Council II in harmony with St.Augustine,St.Thomas Aquinas, Pope Boniface VIII etc on outside the Church there is no salvation.This is the only rational alternative today.
He is not really asking them to affirm Vatican Council II like Lanzetta and Mattei, for whom the Council is a rupture with the saints and popes on outside the Church there is no salvation.
So the Franciscans of the Immaculate must see that Vatican Council II is no more a rupture with Tradition.
When Vatican Council II affirms the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus as it was known to the missionaries and Magisterium during the 16th century, when they offered the Traditional Latin Mass, then the Franciscans must affirm this interpretation of the Council and ask Cardinal Braz de Avez and Archbishop Jose Carbello to do the same.
Since Vatican Council II is not a rupture with Tradition( EENS, Syllabus of Errors etc) and so this is an issue for Cardinal Avez and not the Franciscans of the Immaculate or the Society of St. Pius X(SSPX).
The Franciscans of the Immaculate should go ahead and make an announcement saying that they affirm Vatican Council II as explained on this blog and not according to Mattei, Lanzetta and the liberal interpretations in the secular media in Italy.
They must ask the Magisterium to support their decision to affirm Vatican Council II and extra ecclesiam nulla salus with Feeneyism as a philosophy and theology.
They would still be rejecting Vatican Council II interpreted with the false premise; with irrational Cushingism, which creates a rupture with Tradition and which is presently supported by Cardinal Avez and Archbishop Carbello.
