Catholics celebrate the feast of Christ the King


Two possibilities


I was talking to a priest and pointed out to him a person walking before us. This person, a non Catholic,  I mentioned,  could be saved or not saved. There are two possibilities in theory. We personally do not know,  we cannot see his soul. We cannot judge his soul and do not know if in future he will be saved or not.The priest agreed. There are just two possibilities in theory. He will be saved or not saved.
Also we cannot judge if this person before us in invincible ignorance or to be saved with the baptism of desire. We cannot say that any person is in this condition.Only God knows if this man would be saved in invincible ignorance, imperfect communion with the Church, seeds of the Word etc.
The Church however tells us that all need 'faith and baptism' for salvation (AG 7,Vatican Council II). So the non Catholic before us is going to Hell according to Vatican Council II  and the Catechism of the Catholic Church 846.
So there are always two possibilities in theory.In reality there is only one possibility. The non Catholic before us is going to Hell unless he converts into the Church.
If he is an 'exception' it would be known only to God.The two of us there could not say that he is an exception. The two of us could say that the one true Church, the only Church of Jesus Christ indicates that that man is going to Hell. We only know that the general way, the norm to go to Heaven is Catholic Faith with the baptism of water.This is the de fide teaching.(Cantate Domino, Council of Florence 1441).
So the man before us is oriented to Hell.

Francis Pope excommunicates a heretic priest who " celebrated " gay marriage

The other side of Pope Francis. Excommunicated " heretic " priest. by S.Sartini of the Journal of 09.26.13

While Pope Francis never ceases to amaze with his desire for dialogue and discussion with everyone, his positions still belong to the line of a traditionalist Church .It is not so long ago when the Pope had shown openness toward divorced and gay. The last time was in his interview to the director of Catholica Civilita ,Fr. Antonio Spadaro. The media has spoken of an openess to same-sex marriage and abortion. In reality, the position of the Vatican has not changed by a millimeter. Pope Francis does not differ at all from the doctrinal line that has characterized his predecessors.Proof of this is the news of the first excommunication latae sententiae signed by Pope Bergoglio. Father Greg Reynolds, an Australian priest , has received the notice of excommunication from the Vatican from the Archbishop of Melbourne, Denis Hart . The reason ? His positions on gay marriage and the ordination of women are not in line with the orientation of the Church.The news was released by the National Catholic Reporter, from information  received from a religious based in Kansas City. The news then started to spread mainly in the Australian media . It has been confirmed by the Vatican.
"The dossier was prepared by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith , even if the excommunication is automatic...it means he is outside the Church and is not able to receive any sacrament. This decision has been taken since the priest's view is not the doctrine of the Church. This is the first excommunication in the Pontificate of Pope Francis. Obviously, the process began with Benedict XVI, but the final decision was with Pope Francis".

The document of the Holy See , written in Latin and without a detailed explanation, is dated May 31. Already in 2011 the priest was suspended from his ministry by the Archbishop of Melbourne.
Father Greg Reynolds , therefore, could no longer celebrate Mass . But despite this prohibition , the priest continued to preside over the celebration and to preach publicly opinions contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church. The priest also founded a movement called " Inclusive Catholics ", which expresses open support for gay marriages.

Now comes the excommunication of Pope Francis. "I expected to be able to be reduced to the lay state - said the Australian priest - but of course I did not expect to be excommunicated. At one time the excommunication was considered something huge, but today the church hierarchy have lost all trust and respect. No one has ever contacted me from the Vatican - added the religious - and I was not given any explanation . "
Reynolds is accused of heresy. According to Canon 751, of Canon Law , "the obstinate denial, after having received baptism, of some truth which must be believed with divine and Catholic faith , or obstinate doubt about it ."
The Vatican's decision is final and without the possibility of appeal. "A choice made for the good of the Church" , reads the communication to Father Greg Reynolds. A strong signal of Pope Bergoglio to all who see  in the work of the new Pope a change of course in the teaching of the Church, which obviously is not there.
