That the deceased-saved are visible to us on earth is the personal view of Prof. Gavin D'Costa, a Catholic professor of theology at the University of Bristol,U.K.It is not the traditional teaching of the Catholic Church.
So the University of Bristol video must not allege that we Catholics accept this irrationality. Those who study at this university must note that a full time professor claims on a university video that the dead-saved are physically visible to him.
This is the accepted norm of reasoning in the philosophy and theology departments of this university.
Catholics in general cannot see the dead! To infer that they can is a falsehood!
There is no magisterial text which states Catholics can see the dead on earth. This is another falsehood in the video.
The video does not cite Ad Gentes 7 (AG 7) of Vatican Council II which says all need 'faith and baptism'. AG 7 contradicts Prof.D'Costa hypothesis when he says "People are not damned if they are not Catholics" (5:09)
The university needs to clarify :-
1) Their faculty cannot see the dead-saved.
2) Neither can Catholics in general see the dead saved with 'seeds of the Word'(AG 11) or that 'ray of that Truth'(NA 2).
3)There is no text in Vatican Council II which says we can see the dead-saved with 'seeds of the Word' or a 'ray of that Truth'.
4) Also if Prof. D'Costa cannot see the dead-saved with 'seeds of the Word' etc how can these cases be exceptions to the traditional teaching on other religions?
5) From the Catholic perspective how can there be a theology of religions if we do not know of a single person saved outside the visible limits of the Church, i.e without Catholic Faith and the baptism of water ?
6)The university must clarify that possibilities of salvation (NA 2 etc) are not known realities.What is invisible for us cannot also be visible for us.These cases saved are implicit for us and not explicit.They are accepted dejure (in principle) but are not known defacto.
University of Bristol video is telling a factual lie : we cannot see the dead-saved who are exceptions to Catholic traditional teaching on other religions and salvation
Gavin D'Costa, professor of Theology at the University of Bristol infers deceased-saved are visible in England :official policy of the university?
