In March 2016 Pope Benedict expressed formal heresy : so according to Cardinal Burke he ceases by that act to be the Pope. It's automatic.
In March 2016 Pope Benedict expressed formal heresy in public when he said or inferred that1) that the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus is no more like it was for the missionaries in the 16th century,2) there was 'a development 'with Vatican Council II and 3) there were examples of known salvation outside the Church,making him to question mission.These examples of known salvation outside the Church for him were exceptions to EENS as it was known in the Middle Ages.Since they were mentioned in Vatican Council II, the Council was ' a development', for him.
He rejects the dogma EENS of the past by assuming hypothetical and physically invisible cases of being saved with the baptism of desire(BOD),baptism of blood(BOB) and in invincible ignorance(I.I) are known people, saved outside the Church and so are exceptions to EENS.With this irrationality he contradicts the authentic magisterium over the centuries.
Then he re-interprets LG 16, GS 22 etc inChristianity and the World Religions and The Hope of Salvation of Infants who Die Without Being Baptised( International Theological Commission). He assumes LG 16 and GS 22 refer to known cases of salvation outside the Church, when they can only be un-known for us humans and known only to God.Again with the same irrationality, of assuming invisible people are visible, he rejects the dogma EENS as it was known to the magisterium of the past.He suggests that there is salvation outside the Church and questions the need for mission.
This is heresy. This is public heresy.
Even after many reports on this subject he did not state on March 2016 in the Avvenire interview that:-
1) The dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus has not changed since the 16th century.It is the same.
2) There is no development with Vatican Council II since hypothetical cases cannot be mistaken to be exceptions to EENS.
He could not say this since his Catechism of the Catholic Church(1994) and other magisterial documents he issued is based on BOD, BOB and I.I referring to known people saved outside the Church.
For Pope Benedict possibilities in the past, hypothetical cases, were known exceptions to the dogma EENS in the present times.
How can people in the past, and possibilities too, be exceptions to EENS in 2018?
For me as a Catholic who affirms Vatican Council II, the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus has not changed and it is the same as it was for the missionaries and magisterium of the 16th century.
There is no development with Vatican Council II.The Council, without the irrational premise, is in harmony with the strict interpretation ofextra ecclesiam nulla salus.
The Letter of the Holy Office 1949 made a mistake and this was also the wrong understanding of EENS, of some or many of the Church Fathers at Vatican Council II, including Pope Benedict .
However the text of Vatican Council II can be interpreted in harmony with the past ecclesiology of the Church and Pope Benedict did not choose to do this in March 2016.
So according to Cardinal Burke's statement Pope Benedict has formally expressed heresy...
But we must not be quick to judge and condemn him since the same error is made by Pope Francis,Cardinal Luiz Ladaria, Cardinal Muller and Cardinal Burke himself.-Lionel Andrades

They all judged wrong in March 2016 and now they want to judge exceptions to mortal sin and support Amoris Laetitia
