I affirm Vatican Council II ( without the irrational premise), I affirm extra ecclesiam nulla salus according to the Church Councils. I affirm an implicit for us baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance.Can the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate do the same? Would this be enough for them to offer the Traditional Latin Mass and have their teaching facilities restored?
With this interpretation of magisterial documents they would not be denying Vatican Council II and neither rejecting Tradition.There would be a hermeneutic of continuity.Since they would not be using the visible-dead-who- are-exceptions premise.NA 2,LG 16,LG 8,UR 3 etc would refer to implicit for us cases.So there would be no exceptions in Vatican Council II to extra ecclesiam nulla salus.Vatican Council II would not contradict the Catechism of Pope Pius X or the Syllabus of Errors of Pope Pius IX.
A Catholic no more has to be a 'crypto Lefebvrist' or a sedevacantist to affirm the Syllabus of Errors, the Catechism of Pope Pius X and the dogma on exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church.
