All the religious communities in Florence, including the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate have to accept Vatican Council II and other magisterial documents using this irrational premise,a lie.
Cardinal Giuseppe Betori is the Archbishop of Florence, Italy and is the Grand Chancellor of the Faculta Teologica dell' Italia Centrale,Florence which offers a Licentiate and Doctorate Degree in Theology for Catholic students.
Here they are taught that Lumen Gentium 16 refers to known exceptions to all needing the baptism of water for salvation. In other words those who are saved in invincible ignorance (LG 16), are known and visible to them in 2014.So they are exceptions to the traditonal interpretation of extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
The students are taught to accept the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 which wrongly inferred to the baptism of desire and invincible ignorance as being known to us, being visible to us(they would have to be visible to us to be exceptions). They were the new exceptions to the traditional interpretation of the dogma by Fr.Leonard Feeney of Boston.This error would have also been part of the cardinal's religious formation.
This irrationality, the use of the false premise (of being able to see the dead), with the false conclusion (the dead are exceptions to all needing the baptism of water in 2014), is approved by Cardinal Betori.
Even a non Catholic, like a member of the Buddhist group visiting the seminary in Florence, would know that we cannot see any one in Florence who is saved with the baptism of desire or in invincible ignorance. So these cases cannot be considered explicit. We cannot see people who are in Heaven.What is not explicit cannot be a defacto exception.
Yet this irrationality is approved by Cardinal Betori who was appointed a member of the Congregation for Catholic Education. This year Pope Francis nominated him a member of the Pontifical Council of the Laity.
The Franciscans of the Immaculate in Florence have to accept Vatican Council II with this irrational premise.They have to use a falsehood in the interpretation of Vatican Council II.
According to Vatican Council II (AG 7) all Muslims, and other non Catholics in Florence need faith and baptism for salvation. So they are oriented to Hell according to Vatican Council II (AG 7).This is not crypto lefebvrism this is Vatican Council II.
At the Faculta Teologica dell' Italia Centrale,Florence they would be told that not all non Catholics need to enter Church formally in 2014.Since there are exceptions. They mean those saved in invincible ignorance etc.These cases, for the cardinal in Florence, are known and visible in 2014 to be exceptions to all needing to enter the Church with faith and baptism for salvation ( to avoid Hell).
There is a rational option. Lumen Gentium 16 would refer to possibilities known only to God. They are hypothetical cases for us.They are not known defacto. So we can accept Lumen Gentium 16 as a possibility but not an exception to the dogma on salvation.Lumen Gentium 16 cannot be an exception since there are no cases visible objectively.
We do not have to reject any thing in Vatican Council II when we affirm the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. Vatican Council II is in agreement with the dogma on exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church.We have an option in the interpretation of the Council.This option is presently not known to the Archbishop of Florence.
The old ecclesiology and understanding of other religions is not contradicted by Vatican Council II if there is no premise on being able to see the dead-saved. The premise has not to be used.
So a priest could offer the Traditional Latin Mass in Florence and accept Vatican Council II with no change in ecclesiology.One does not have to be a sedevacantist or a 'Lefebvrian' to affirm extra ecclesiam nulla salus with no exceptions according to Vatican Council II.
A Franciscan Friar of the Immaculate priest could hold the Feeneyite version of the dogma and be in agreement with Vatican Council II.It would not require telling a lie, using an irrational premise and being unethical.
Presently the theological teaching at Florence is unethical.They are asking students to use an irrational inference and so interpret Vatican Council II as a break with Catholic Tradition.
All the religious communities in Florence, including the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate have to accept Vatican Council II and other magisterial documents using this irrational premise- this lie.
Ascanio Ruschi is a legal counselor in Florence .He was informed by Cardinal Betori that Father Serafino Lanzetta, the Parish Priest of the Church San Salvadaor in Ognisanti, Florence was not allowed to offer the Traditional Latin Mass at the book launching ceremony of "Il Vaticano II: un Concilio pastorale" ( Edizioni Cantagalli). Ascanio Ruschi, is President of Comunione Tradizionale,Florence .
The President of Comunione Tradizionale must note that all Catholics in Florence are being asked to intepret Vatican Council II and magisterial documents in an unethical manner .He could write to the Archbishop about this and hopefully get a reply.
