Cardinal Luiz Ladaria : Official text with Abjuration and Profession of Faith and Oath of Fidelity
Here is the official text of the Profession of Faith and the Oath of Fidelity from the Vatican website. Cardinal Luiz Ladaria sj,Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Vatican,would abjure his errors and confirm the faith in the points mentioned in the brackets.
PROFESSION OF FAITH
I, Luiz Ladaria,, with firm faith believe and profess each and everything that is contained in the Symbol of faith, namely:
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit ( who teaches the Church that outside the Church there is no salvation and that all non Catholics in the present times are oriented to Hell with no known exception),the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church ( outside of which there is no salvation and all need to be members of this Church to go to Heaven and avoid Hell.Since in Heaven there are only Catholics.)
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins( which is the baptism of water and not three or more known baptisms BOD, BOB and I.I,which also exclude the baptism of water)and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
With firm faith, I also believe everything contained in the word of God, whether written or handed down in Tradition, which the Church, either by a solemn judgment or by the ordinary and universal Magisterium, sets forth to be believed as divinely revealed.( and this includes the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus as defined by three Church Councils and supported by Vatican Council II(AG 7).It is important to note that in Vatican Council II, LG 8, LG 14, LG 16, UR 3, NA 2, GS 22 etc are not practical exceptions to EENS)
I also firmly accept and hold each and everything definitively proposed by the Church regarding teaching on faith and morals.( this means there are no visible and personally known exceptions in faith and morals. We cannot judge when manifest mortal sin is not a mortal sin and a Catholic can be given the Eucharist.If there is an exception it can only be known to God.
Neither can we judge practical exceptions to the traditional teachings on faith and salvation, in particular the dogma EENS, with BOD, BOB and I.I not being known people whom we can judge saved outside the Church.
I abjure the error made by the liberal theologians in assuming invisible cases of BOD, BOB and I.I were in reality visible and known people saved outside the Catholic Church)
Moreover, I adhere with religious submission of will and intellect to the teachings which either the Roman Pontiff or the College of Bishops enunciate when they exercise their authentic Magisterium, even if they do not intend to proclaim these teachings by a definitive act ( and as long as they do not contain objective error, violate the Principle of Non Contradiction and reject the traditional teachings of the Church with the use of a false premise.)
OATH OF FIDELITY ON ASSUMING AN OFFICE TO BE EXERCISED IN THE NAME OF THE CHURCH
(Formula to be used by members of the Christian faithful mentioned in canon 833, nn. 5-8)
I, Luiz Ladaria, in assuming the office of ………, promise that in my words and in my actions I shall always preserve communion with the Catholic Church.
With great care and fidelity I shall carry out the duties incumbent on me toward the Church, both universal and particular, in which, according to the provisions of the law, I have been called to exercise my service.
In fulfilling the charge entrusted to me in the name of the Church, I shall hold fast to the deposit of faith in its entirety; I shall faithfully hand it on and explain it, and I shall avoid any teachings contrary to it.
I hereby announce that I affirm the baptism of desire(BOD),baptism of blood (BOB) and invincible ignorance(I.I) which refer to invisible people in 2018.They are only hypothetical cases and not personally known people saved outside the Catholic Church in the present times.So I affirm the traditional interpretation of the dogma EENS in harmony with invisibe for us BOD, BOB and I.I.The Catholic Church still has the superiority and exclusiveness in salvation as it was known over the centuries.
I hereby announce that I affirm LG 8, LG 14, LG 16, UR 3, GS 22 etc as also referring to hypothetical cases and so they are not practical exceptions to the interpretation of the dogma EENS as it was known to the Magisterium and missionaries in the 16th century.So Vatican Council II is not a rupture with the 'strict interpretation ' of the dogma EENS for me.
I support the interpretation of EENS according to Fr. Leonard Feeney and acknowledge the mistake made by the CDF (Holy Office 1949) when they assumed invisible cases of BOD, BOB and I.I were visible exceptions to the dogma EENS. center. On behalf of the CDF I apologize to the St.Benedict Centers in the USA for the mistake made by my predecessors in the late 1940's.
I interpret the Nicene Creed, the Catechisms and the statements on EENS made by the popes and saints and Church Councils , always with BOD, BOB and I.I referring to unknown and theoretical cases. If they existed they could only be known to God and would be followed by the baptism of water in the Catholic Church, since this is the dogmatic teaching of the Church in the Extraordinary Magisterium ( Cantate Domino, Council of Florence 1441 etc).
Since there is no known salvation outside the Church for us, no physically visible cases, and this is common sense, I affirm the Syllabus of Errors on an ecumenism of return. There is no known Anonymous Christian saved outside the Church in another religion.
I do hereby abjure my errors of the past when I interpreted BOD, BOB and I.I as referring to the known people saved outside the Church.
I hereby abjure my error in interpreting Vatican Council II,the Catechisms, the Nicene Creed and other magisterial documents with an irrational premise, to create a rupture with Tradition(past ecclesiology, Syllabus of Errors etc)
I reject the New Theology, New Ecumenism, New Ecclesiology and New Evangelisation which was based on there being known salvation outside the Catholic Church and BOD, BOB and I.I being objective cases in our reality.
Since there is no known salvation outside the Church the priority for saving souls is the proclamation of the Social Reign of Christ the King with the non separation of Church and State.
I shall follow and foster the common discipline of the entire Church and I shall maintain the observance of all ecclesiastical laws, especially those contained in the Code of Canon Law.
I shall interpret all references to BOD, BOB and I.I in Canon Law as referring to hypothetical and theoretical cases which could only be known to God. So they are not exceptions to the old ecclesiology of the Church or the understanding on outside the Church there is no salvation.
I support the SSPX General Chapter Statement on Doctrine(2012) which affirmed traditional EENS and I reject the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 which was based on an objective mistake( non Catholics who have died outside the Church and are saved in Heaven are visible on earth to be objective exceptions to all needing to be members of the Catholic Church for salvation) which violates the Principle of Non Contradiction.
I abjure my statement on March 1,2018 at the Placeut Deo Press Conference when I suggested there were known cases of non Catholics saved outside the Church and this was indicated in Lumen Gentium 8( subsists in). So I wrongly said that the Church no more has a superiority and exclusiveness in salvation.
I abjure the statement of Pope Benedict XVI in March 2016 in the interview with Avvenire.He said that EENS was no more like it was for the missionaries in the 16th century,since for him, there was a development with Vatican Council II. He meant Vatican Council II interpreted with LG 8, LG 14,LG 16, UR 3, NA 2, GS 22 etc being objective examples of salvation outside the Catholic Church.
I do not support his suggesting that Vatican Council II ended the motiviation for mission. For me there is no known salvation outside the Church. So the traditional understanding of mission, as it was known to the Jesuits in the Middle Ages has not changed.
With Christian obedience I shall follow what the Bishops, as authentic doctors and teachers of the faith, declare, or what they, as those who govern the Church, establish.
I shall obey the Bishops when they are in harmony with the past ecclesiology and are not teaching innovations based on hypothetical cases not being hypothetical in the present times.Then I have the obligation to reject it since this is not the Deposit of the Faith.
I shall also faithfully assist the diocesan Bishops, so that the apostolic activity, exercised in the name and by mandate of the Church, may be carried out in communion with the Church.
So help me God, and God’s Holy Gospels on which I place my hand.
(Variations in the fourth and fifth paragraphs of the formulary,
for use by those members of the Christian faithful indicated in can. 833, n. 8)
I shall foster the common discipline of the entire Church and I shall insist on the observance of all ecclesiastical laws, especially those contained in the Code of Canon Law.
I shall reject disunity created when the Code of Canon Law is interpreted as saying unknown cases of BOD, BOB and I.I are known, and that invisible cases are objective exceptions to EENS and the Syllabus of Errors.
With Christian obedience I shall follow what the Bishops, as authentic doctors and teachers of the faith, declare, or what they, as those who govern the Church, establish. I shall also — with due regard for the character and purpose of my institute — faithfully assist the diocesan Bishops, so that the apostolic activity, exercised in the name and by mandate of the Church, may be carried out in communion with the Church.
