Vatican officials are not answering two simple questions 1, whose answer even a young boy with no knowledge of theology, would know.
Without clarifying the answer to the two questions,related to Catholic doctrine, they want the Franciscans of the Immaculate (FI) to accept Vatican Council II.
If they answered the two questions they, and the FI would be accepting Vatican Council II without the irrationality.The Council would be traditional.'Stay away from me' is their message.
The answer to these two questions would show that Vatican Council II is politically non correct and non heretical. when an irrational premise is avoided.
Fr.Frederico Lombardi last Thursday issued a statement on the FI while not answering the doctrinal questions.
Similarly Cardinal George Pell in Rome refused to answer the two questions.It is the same with Mons.Monsignor Lorenzo Leuzzi, the head of the Department for Pastoral Care (Pastorale per Salute) for the Sick, of the Vicariate of Rome.
Fr.Frederico Lombardi,Prefect of the Vatican's Press Office has not answered why the Franciscans of the Immaculate should accept Vatican Council II with an irrationality. The irrationality is the premise of being able to see the saved in heaven who are physically visible exceptions on earth, to all needing the baptism of water for salvation; all needing to convert into the Church.
Can the Franciscans Friars and Sisters of the Immaculate affirm Vatican Council II without this fantasy premise ? No one at the Vatican Press Office wants to answer.
It is usually said "We don't want to discuss theology".
"Do the Franciscans of the Immaculate have to accept an irrational premise in their theology?" The Vatican officials could answer , "Yes they have to !".
Are they free to accept any theology? Can they accept the 'old theology' without the fantasy premise. Is the Batman version of Vatican Council II 3 obligatory for the Franciscans of the Immaculate and all Catholics ? No answer from the official sources on an issue of the Catholic Faith.
1) Do we personally know the dead now saved in invincible ignorance, a good conscience (LG 16) etc,can we see them, are they physically visible to us in 2014 ? 2) Since we do not know any of these cases, in real life, they are not visible to us, there are no known exceptions to the literal interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus, or Ad Gentes 7 which states 'all' need 'faith and baptism' for salvation?
Fr.Fehlner has to accept the Batman version of Vatican Council II : Franciscans of the Immaculate are still receiving threats on doctrine
