Archbishop Gerhard Muller and Cardinal Luiz Ladaria S.J, Prefect and Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Vatican are still not answering two questions , (1) which are directly linked to the interpretation of Vatican Council II in accord with Tradition.
If they answered these two questions it would help in the reconciliation with the SSPX.
Even Mons. Nicola Bux and others, in spite of appeals, are not answering the two questions and addressing the problem of the visible-dead.
If the visible dead problem does not exist i.e if we can see the dead on earth; they are saved and are visible to us, then LG 16, Vatican Council II contradicts extra ecclesiam nulla salus.So Vatican Council II would be saying there is salvation outside the Catholic Church.The Council is then a break with Tradition.
The answer to those two questions determines If Vatican Council II has a 'hermeneutic of discontinuity',as the Prefect for the Council for the Clergy,Vatican described it recently.
It is the responsibility of the CDF to clarify doctrine and the Faith and so they should answer the two questions for all to know.-Lionel Andrades
1) Do we personally know the dead saved in invincible ignorance, a good conscience (LG 16) etc ?
2) Since we do not know any of these cases, there are no known exceptions to the literal interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus ?
