Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Luiz Ladaria S.J have made a doctrinal error in two theological papers of the International Theological Commission.
Vatican Council II, itself, has changed. This is the new reality.
The Council without the doctrinal error does not contradict Tradition.
Once this is acknowledged by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith or the Society of St.Pius X they will be saying that Vatican Council II does not contradict the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus or the Catechism of Pope Pius XII.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church (846) affirms all need to enter the Church as through a door ( Buddhists, Hindus, Protestants, Orthodox Christians etc) and all need faith and baptism for salvation (AG 7, CCC 846). CCC 847 and 848 do not contradict CCC 846 and AG 7.
Vatican Council II refers to those saved in invincible ignorance(LG 16), seeds of the Word (AG 11), good and holy things in other religions (NA 2),elements of sanctification and truth(LG 8). These are hypothetical cases for us and so they are not known realities in 2014, we cannot see the dead saved as such.
Vatican Council II also refers to all needing faith and baptism for salvation( AG 7) and this is in agreement with the Catechism of the Catholic Church 846, Outside the Church No Salvation, which says all need to enter the Church 'as through a door'.So in general the ordinary means of salvation for all is faith and baptism.
The ordinary means of salvation is not being saved in invincible ignorance(LG 16) , seeds of the Word(AG 11) etc.?
Since I cannot meet a non Catholic on the streets of Rome who I know will be saved in invincible ignorance etc , every non Catholic I meet is oriented to Hell, with Original Sin and mortal sins committed in that state, unless he converts into the Catholic Church (with faith and baptism ) and has access to the Sacraments.
So there is nothing in Vatican Council II to contradict the traditional Catholic teaching on other religions and Christians communities unless one is assuming that implicit for us cases (LG 16 etc) are explicit for us and so are exceptions to Tradition.
Vatican Council II does not contradict the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus when it mentions only hypothetical cases , which we accept are possibilities for salvation but are not known in our reality?
The doctrinal error of the International Theological Commission is being made by the Dominicans at Aquinas College ( there has been no denial) and the diocese of Charlotte ,USA.The Most Reverend Peter J. Jugis, Bishop of Charlotte, USA stated "All of our Catholic schools are committed to hold and teach the Catholic faith in its fullness and with integrity. The Catechism of the Catholic Church contains an explanation of our faith and is accessible to all."
There is the same Catechism but there can be two interpretations.http://eucharistandmission.blogspot.it/2014/04/same-catechism-of-catholic-church-but.html#links
Same Catechism of the Catholic Church but different interpretations
There is nothing in Vatican Council II which contradicts the dogma extra eccelesiam nulla salus unless the Dominican sisters are assuming that the dead-saved are known exceptions. Similarly the Catechism of the Catholic Church is in agreement with the literal interpretation of extra ecclesiam nulla salus unless Bishop Peter J.Jugis assumes that CCC 847 and 848 refer to visible in the flesh cases in 2014.
