With a simple announcement Vatican Council II would be in accord with the Syllabus of Errors.Without the Cushing Error Vatican Council II is traditional.It has the ‘hermeneutic of continuity’.
If the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Vatican really wants to, they could begin the reconciliation with the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). They have only to announce the truth.
The truth is that without the Richard Cushing Error Vatican Council II s in agreement with the SSPX values on other religions, ecumenism and religious liberty. With the Cushing Error Vatican Council II is modernist and progressive.
If the CDF wants a reconciliation they just have to announce that they accept the baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance (it can only be accepted in principle because of its nature) and there are no known cases. In reality we do not know any one saved as such. So they are not exceptions to the dogma on salvation; the Syllabus of Errors and Vatican Council II (Ad Gentes 7) .AG 7 says all need faith and baptism.AG 7 has the same message as the dogma on salvation. When Vatican Council II agrees with the dogma on exclusive salvation it means,ecclesiology is ecclesiocentric.
So if the CDF really wants a reconciliation with the SSPX, the next time Archbishop Gerhard Muller says the SSPX needs to accept Vatican Council II, he should also add, “without the Richard Cushing Error”.
