"Credo, ergo ego sum!" A Filipino Catholic's frank commentary on anything that affects his life as a citizen of the Philippines and as a Roman Catholic.
Edward Pentin could break the extra ecclesiam nulla salus story world wide with repercussions for the SSPX and Bishop Williamson and the bishops he will ordain. From the news point of view it would be a sensation.The excommunication of Fr.Leonard Feeney was not lifted for 19 years when the baptism of desire is not an exception to the literal interpretation of the dogma.He held the traditional interpretation and his priestly faculties were taken away.The Jesuits also dismissed him.The popes from Pius XII to Benedict XVI may not have known that the baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance are irrelevant to the dogma.It could have been a simple oversight.Edward Pentin seems to understand the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus unlike other Catholic journalists. In his next interview he could be poised for a sensation.Even though in his last two interviews with Archbishop Gerhard Muller and Augustine Di Noia he let them get away, the right questions, could be asked in future interviews.When the following two questions are asked, extra ecclesiam nulla salus could become international news.1. Do we know in the year 2012 any one saved in invincible ignorance, the baptism of desire, a good conscience(Lumen Gentium), seeds of the word (Ad Gentes), imperfect communion with the Church(Unitatis Redintigratio) ?2. If we do not know any of these cases in 2012 can they be considered exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus and the Syllabus of Errors? Pontifical Universities and seminaries world wide will have to adapt and change their teachings.The Vatican Curia will have to reinterpret Vatican Council II.The Vatican Jesuit spokesman would have to announce the obvious: "We cannot see the dead on earth who are saved. So there are no known exceptions to the dogma and Ad Gentes 7 Vatican Council II, which says all need 'faith and baptism' for salvation'.Vatican Council II would be traditional and the Society of St.Pius X (SSPX) could accept it. They could be given an ordinariate like the Opus Dei, who will also make changes in their teachings on Catholic salvation.If Edward Pentin is fast enough he could do it this week. I have been sending him these blog posts for quite sometime.This is Jesus' Church in which truth has a way of equilibrating itself. Every time it is pushed down, it comes up to the surface and asserts itself.-Lionel AndradesEDWARD PENTIN DID NOT ASK ARCHBISHOPS MULLER AND DI NOI HOW COULD INVINCIBLE IGNORANCE AND 'ELEMENTS OF GRACE' BE EXCEPTIONS TO EXTRA ECCLESIAM NULLA SALUShttp://eucharistandmission.blogspot.it/2012/10/edward-pentin-did-not-ask-archbishops.html#links
