Opus Dei university in Rome gives Fr.Francesco Giordano a doctorate degree inspite of the error?

Fr.Francesco Giordano was to complete his doctorate at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome, the Opus Dei university. He  completed his Masters at the Angelicum University in Rome, by stating that invincible ignorance and the baptism of desire are known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. He was also critical of Fr.Leonard Feeney for not accepting known exceptions to the traditional interpretation of extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
This was an objective error and it is not known if the Dean of Theology at the Opus Dei university will accept this error or have it corrected or there will be new demands on the Italian priest.

Nearly three months and no Traditional Latin Mass in Rome

It is now nearly three months  and I have still to attend Holy Mass at the Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary(Chiesa di Santa Maria Annunziata) ,Lungotevere, near the Vatican.I would attend the Traditional Latin Mass there on Sundays at 10.30 a.m.Mass was offered by priests of  the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate. 
There were many people who would attend Mass there in the Extraordinary Form and perhaps they still continue.The Novus Ordo Mass is held there in Italian or Latin.
I went to the church a few times to ask when would Tridentine Rite Mass resume and a young American friar would say that they still do not have permission and "it is in the hands of Our Lady".
Fr.Paolo FFI, the Rector at the church, applied for permission to offer the Traditional Latin Mass, about the time the new Apostolic Commissioner Fr.Fidenzio Volpi  was appointed.Permission has still not been granted.-Lionel Andrades

Bishop Bernard Fellay could check the non traditional, irrational errors in SSPX books

Bishop Bernard Fellay has said that the Society of St.Pius X(SSPX) will return to the Catholic Church when the Church returns to Tradition.He could help by making the books published or distributed by the SSPX error-free which promotes a non traditional, irrational theory. VaticanoII un dibattito aperto
Fr.Jean Marie Glieze claims that in Mystici Corporis Pope Pius XII says ' in the exceptional way one can be saved outside the visible limits of the Catholic Church.' (1) Where is it mentioned in Mystici Corporis that in an exceptional way one can be saved outside the visible limits of the Church?.The preface for this book with the  error has been written by Bishop Bernard Fellay. This is  an objective error made in the Catholic Church at large and is responsible for the rejection of Tradition.
Then there is  a doctrinal error in Cristina Siccardi's, I'nverno della Chiesa dopo Il Concilio Vaticano II-i mutamenti e le cause (Sugarco Edizioni 2013,Milan,Italy).I have e-mailed this message to her but there is no reply.Her  book is being sold at the SSPX chapel in Rome.
In Chapter 10 :Le Contraddizioni, le ambiguità, le omissioni( p.128) it is said that the doctrine on the Church, as expresed in Lumen Gentium 8 contradicts the teachings of Pope Pius XII in Mystici Corporis and Humani Generis.
The doctrine on ecumenism Siccardi says as expressed in Lumen Gentium 8 and Unitatis Redintigratio 3 contradicts the teachings of Pope Pius IX in Propositions 16 and 17 of the Syllabus of Errors and those of Leone XIII in Satis cognituum and Pope Pio XI in Mortalium animos.
Here are the quotes from Vatican Council II to which she refers:
This Church constituted and organized in the world as a society, subsists in the Catholic Church, which is governed by the successor of Peter and by the Bishops in communion with him,(13*) although many elements of sanctification and of truth are found outside of its visible structure. These elements, as gifts belonging to the Church of Christ, are forces impelling toward catholic unity.-Lumen Gentium 8
For men who believe in Christ and have been truly baptized are in communion with the Catholic Church even though this communion is imperfect.-Unitatis Redintigratio 3
As I have mentioned in a previous blog post according to the SSPX priests in Italy ,there are no known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus and so if there are no exceptions to the dogma on exclusive salvation then there must also be no exceptions to the Syllabus of Errors. The SSPX priests acknowledge that a person can be saved in invincible ignorance or the baptism of desire as a possibility but they are not exeptions.
There are no exceptions mentioned in Lumen Gentium 8 and Unitatis Redintigratio 3, above.We do not know any one saved in 2013 with 'elements of sanctification and grace' (LG 8). Neither do we know any one saved in 'imperfect communion with the Church'(UR 3).
So Cristiana Siccardi and Fr.J.M Gleize  have assumed that the dead now saved with 'elements of sanctification and truth' or in imperfect communion with the Church are exceptions to the dogma on salvation and the Syllabus.
Possibilities are not exceptions. So LG 8 and UR 3 are not exceptions to all non Catholics, Christian and non Christian, needing to enter the Church visibly for salvation. Neither are LG 8 and UR 3 exceptions to AG 7 and LG 14 which states all need to convert into the Church.Neither Siccardi or Gleize mentions AG 7 which is in agreement with the Syllabus of Errors. So we have AG 7 in agreement with the Syllabus of Errors and there are no known exceptions mentioned in Vatican Council II to AG 7.Is Feeneyism Catholic
This same error is made in a book published by the Angelus Press of the SSPX (USA). In Is Feeneyism Catholic' ,Fr.Francois Laisney, the SSPX priest assumes that being saved in invincible ignorance and the baptism of desire are known exceptions to the traditional interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
This is a non traditional Catholic doctrine that the SSPX is promoting through its books and it wants the Church to come back to Tradition.

'19.Risposta alla terza obiezione: in Mystici corporis Pio XII dice che in via eccezionale ci si può salvare al di fuori dei limiti visibili della Chiessa Cattolica...'-Don J.M Gleize FSSPX (p.152.

Fr.Jean Marie Gleize makes a doctrinal error in a book published by the SSPX

Times have changed

Times have changed in the Catholic Church. In the past you could have been mistaken for a sedevacantist or traditionalist if you said outside the Church there is no salvation.
In the past Catholics would consider you someone who rejects Vatican Council II if you said outside the church there is no salvation.Many now understand that one can accept Vatican Council II and also the literal interpretation of the dogma according to Fr.Leonard Feeney of Boston.
One does not have to be a sedevacantist to hold the rigorist interpretation , which was the traditional interpretation of the Church's teaching on salvation.
Similarly it is no more triumphalism, to say there is exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church , since Vatican Council II without the Cushing Error itself would be triumphalistic in AG 7 and LG 14.
Vatican Council II has not changed the Church's teaching on salvation. It has not brought 'a revolution' into the Church as the anti-Catholic  media says, unless your using Cushingism in the interpretation of the Council.
The post-Vatican Council II Catholic Church is traditional in the Council-texts, when interpreted with Feeneyism.More Catholics know it today. There can be two interpretations  one with a false  premise and the other without it.

Priebke Funeral- Interview with Fr.Pierpaolo Petrucci, District Superior,SSPX, Albano -3

D. 8 - Among the most negative reactions to your decision , we find especially those from some sectors of the Catholic world . In particular, there was a stunning and uncharitable tone expressed by the director of Radio Maria , which more than others should teach mercy . Even the Bishop of Albano , Lazio issued harsh statements against the Society of St. Pius X coming to argue that it is not part of the Catholic Church . What can you say about it ?
R. Membership in the Church is not only something that is purely legal. St. Thomas Aquinas explains that the first condition to be part of the Mystical Body of Christ is faith. Unfortunately, after the Second Vatican Council , new doctrines were taught by the church authorities in contradiction with the constant teaching of the Church. Our Fraternity , duly recognized by the Church from November 1, 1970 , has  unjustly been fought against for their opposition to these changes.
Changes which then give rise to behavior contrary to Catholic doctrine , such as, to comply with political correctness, denying the funeral of a baptized person who dies reconciled with God.
While respecting authority, the Society of St. Pius X has always been opposed to these errors , convinced that the greatest service we can render to the Church is not servility but the proclamation of the whole of Catholic teaching in its integrity and denouncing everything
that is opposed to it, even when proclaimed by a part of the hierarchy .
To say that we are not Catholics, especially by priests who should know the doctrine of the Church, is a pure lie and perhaps would call for a public act of reparation.
On the other hand I realize that many Catholics and even many bishops judge us without knowing us, often starting from prejudices and stereotypes.
The Bishop of Albano, for whom every priest of our Priory prays for daily in the canon of the Mass  is always welcome to join us and he can check if we really are not part of the Church as perhaps he has said unwisely.
D. 9 - Other commentators , evidently ill-informed , have approached your decision to positions of Msgr. Richard Williamson or don Floriano Abrahamowicz.
What can you say about it?
R. As Superior of the Society of St. Pius X District in Italy I want to clarify that both Bishop Williamson and don Floriano Abrahamowicz were expelled from our Fraternity precisely because some of their positions are incompatible with the vocation of the Fraternity. Their claims do not represent in any way the official thinking of the Society of St. Pius X... I would also like to point out that some declarations in the newspapers, cited as being my statements, are just not representative of our thinking. The mercy of God does not exclude anyone when there is true repentance .
D. 10 How did you live that afternoon in the community?
R. On the day of the funeral we have seen , unfortunately, manifestations of hate . There was the spitting and kicking of the hearse under the eyes of a mayor with a tricolor flag ! I was amazed at the banner of some protesters which said " The Eternal Father may forgive you but not us ." This funeral was the occasion of an open clash between opposing doctrines : the teaching of Jesus Christ and His Church centered on mercy and forgiveness on the one hand and ideologies that do not know how to forgive or do not want to forgive the other.
There was the immutable law of Love and Charity, and that of hatred , revenge , and of ' " an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth ."
It is the law of Christ that we propose to follow , far from any ideological controversy .
D. 11 - There have been finally newspapers that have tried to associate the image of a community of Saint Pius X in Albano poorly integrated with the local population who would not like the presence of the Priory on their territory. Is it like this
R. Our Fraternity is present here in Albano since 1974. It has formed diverse generations of children for First Communion and Confirmation, and performs works of mercy towards the sick and the poor to whom are regularly distributed food and clothing . We have so many friends in the population who have also expressed their solidarity in this matter .
I refuse to believe that the angry mob which last Tuesday was abandoned to partisan hatred before the coffin of a dead man can be representative of the inhabitants of Albano.
To conclude I would like to quote a phrase from St. Paul in his Epistle to the Galatians: " If I tried to please men , I would not be a servant of Christ ." I think this should be the program and the ideal of a man of the Church : to always act in accordance with the teaching of Christ , never to compromise with the spirit of the world.
