35th Anniversary Novena to Our Lady
The Queen of Peace

On June 15, 2016, begins the Novena in thanksgiving for 35 years of the apparitions of the Queen of Peace. In Medjugorje, the local people will pray the rosary at Apparition Hill every day at 4pm, and we unite with all our friends and with all the pilgrims all over the world through this Novena. The Novena ends on June 23, and on June 24, at 6am, we pray for peace in the “Peace March” which leads us in a Eucharistic procession from Humac to Medjugorje. We invite all Our Lady’s pilgrims, wherever they may be, to unite in a joyful prayer!

Since 1981, in a small village in Bosnia-Hercegovina named Medjugorje, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing and giving messages to the world. She tells us that God has sent Her to our world, and these years She is spending with us are a time of Grace granted by God. In Her own words She tells us, "I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God".
Our Lady's mission is one of peace. She has come to earth to reeducate us and to help us convert and recenter our lives back to God. Our Lady's role has always been one of guiding people to Her Son, Jesus. What an amazing opportunity we have before us! Our Lady's call to conversion is urgent, and we should respond with all our hearts.
Our Lady continues to give messages to six people from the village of Medjugorje: Ivan, Jakov, Marija, Mirjana, Vicka, and Ivanka. These six people (referred to as "visionaries") have received apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary since June 24, 1981. In addition to Her public messages, Our Lady is to give each of the six visionaries a total of ten "secrets" of happenings that will occur on earth in the near future. Some of the secrets pertain to the whole world while others concern the visionaries themselves or the local village. Only one of the secrets has so far been revealed by the visionaries. In the third secret Our Lady has promised to leave a supernatural, indestructible, and visible sign on the mountain where she first appeared. Our Lady said: "This sign will be given for the atheists. You faithful already have signs and you have become the sign for the atheists. You faithful must not wait for the sign before you convert; convert soon. This time is a time of grace for you. You can never thank God enough for His grace. The time is for deepening your faith, and for your conversion. When the sign comes, it will be too late for many."
When each of the six visionaries has received all ten "secrets", Our Lady will stop appearing to them on a daily basis. Currently, Marija, Vicka, and Ivan have received nine secrets, and Our Lady still appears to them every day, wherever they are, at 6:40pm. Mirjana, Jakov, and Ivanka have received all ten secrets, and Our Lady appears to them once per year for the rest of their lives. For Ivanka who received her 10th secret on May 7, 1985 it is on the anniversary of the apparitions, June 25 each year. For Jakov who received his 10th secret on September 12, 1998, it is on Christmas day each year. And for Mirjana who received her 10th secret on Christmas 1982, it is on her birthday, March 18 each year. Our Lady has also been appearing to Mirjana on the 2nd of each month since August 2, 1987 for the purpose of praying for all unbelievers. Mirjana tells us that it is very important that all of us pray for the unbelievers in the world, who are described as those who have not yet experienced God's love. No one knows when Our Lady will give the tenth secret to Marija, Ivan, and Vicka.
Once Our Lady has stopped appearing there will be three warnings given to the world. These warnings will be in the form of events on earth. They will occur within Mirjana's lifetime, and Mirjana will be a witness to them. Ten days before each of the warnings, she will advise the priest she chose for this task (Father Petar Ljubicic), who will then pray and fast with Mirjana for seven days. Then, three days before each warning is to take place, Fr. Petar will announce to the world what, where, and when the warning will take place. Fr. Petar has no choice, and must reveal each warning. After the first warning, the other two will follow in a rather short period of time. That interval will be a period of great grace and conversion. After the permanent, visible, supernatural, and indestructible sign appears on the mountain where Our Lady first appeared in Medjugorje, there will be little time for conversion. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin invites us to urgent conversion and reconciliation. The permanent sign will lead to many healings and conversions before the secrets become reality. According to Mirjana, the events predicted by the Blessed Virgin are near. By virtue of this experience, Mirjana proclaims to the world: 'Hurry, be converted; open your hearts to God.'
The ninth and tenth secrets are serious. They concern chastisement for the sins of the world. Punishment is inevitable, for we cannot expect the whole world to be converted. The punishment can be diminished by prayer and penance, but it cannot be eliminated. Mirjana says that one of the evils that threatened the world, the one contained in the seventh secret, has been averted, thanks to prayer and fasting. That is why the Blessed Virgin continues to encourage prayer and fasting: "You have forgotten that with prayer and fasting you can ward off wars, suspend natural laws."
In addition to this basic message, Mirjana related an apparition she had in 1982, which sheds some light on certain aspects of Church history. She spoke of an apparition in which satan appeared to her, and asked Mirjana to renounce Our Lady and to follow him. By doing so she could be happy in love and in life. He added that following Our Lady would only lead to suffering. Mrjana rejected him, and immediately Our Lady appeared and Satan disappeared. Then Our Lady gave Mirjana the following message:
"Excuse me for this, but you must realize that Satan exists. One day he appeared before the throne of God and asked permission to submit the Church to a period of trial. God gave him permission to try the Church for one century. This century is under the power of the devil; but when the secrets confided to you come to pass, his power will be destroyed. Even now he is beginning to lose his power and has become aggressive. He is destroying marriages, creating divisions among priests and is responsible for obsessions and murder. You must protect yourselves against these things through fasting and prayer, especially community prayer. Carry blessed objects with you. Put them in your house, and restore the use of holy water."
According to certain Catholic experts who have studied these apparitions, this message of Mirjana may shed light on the vision Pope Leo XIII had. According to them, it was after having had an apocalyptic vision of the future of the Church that Leo XIII introduced the prayer to Saint Michael, which priests used to recite after Mass up to the time of the Second Vatican Council. These experts say that the century of trials foreseen by Leo XIII is about to end.
Since the apparitions began in 1981, approximately 40 million people of all faiths, from all over the world, have visited Medjugorje and have left spiritually strengthened and renewed. Many bring back stories of miracles in the form of healings (of mind, body and spirit), supernatural visual signs, and deep conversions back to God. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones, to investigate with an open mind and heart the messages which are given to us by Our Lady of Medjugorje. I invite you to read these messages and decide for yourself how they will affect your life and that of your family.
Our Lady's messages are meant to be assembled like a mosaic. To understand the full meaning and depth of these messages, we need to study all of the messages She has given us over these last 33+ years. "By means of the messages, I wish to make a very beautiful mosaic in your hearts." (November 25, 1989)Our Lady has asked that we continually read, study, and meditate on the messages which She has given us. She said: "Little children, read every day the messages I gave you and transform them into life. I love you and this is why I call you to the way of salvation with God." (December 25, 1989).
The technique of teaching which Our Lady uses, reeducates us to be Christians. She accomplishes this by walking with us, and guiding us step by step, message by message. Today, many people think it is not important to be a Christian. Others want to live a superficial form of Christianity which is easier or more convenient than living a true Christian life. Our Lady wants to show us through Her messages the real face of Christianity. This is a long process because we as a society have strayed far from the truth and God and are slow to learn. This is true both in the Church and outside the Church. We have to accept being totally reeducated, little by little, by the Mother of God. The problem with mankind is not so much that people have bad intentions; there are plenty of good hearted people. The problem is that we sometimes don't see the truth; we are in darkness, and many of us are just blind. We do not realize that we have put ourselves into the hands of satan because we do not know how to tell the difference between right and wrong. Many of us become an image of satan without even knowing it.
I don't think that anyone could argue, regardless of religious orientation, that today's world is in a state of crisis. All one has to do is read the newspaper or watch television to be see how eroded the morals of our world have become. It is shocking to see and hear the examples of terrorism, inhumanity, cruelty, violence, abuse, drugs, war, crime, etc., etc. Much of the world has strayed far from a life centered around God and family. The answers which we need to redirect our life can be found by reading and living Our Lady's messages and Scripture.
"You are ready to commit sin, and to put yourselves in the hands of satan without reflecting." (May 25, 1987)
"Do not allow satan to gain control of your hearts, so you would be an image of satan and not of me." (January 30, 1986)
"Children, darkness reigns over the whole world. People are attracted by many things and they forget about the more important."
"Light won't reign in the world until people accept Jesus, until they live His words, which is the Word of the Gospel."
"Dear children, this is the reason for my presence among you for such a long time: to lead you on the path of Jesus. I want to save you and, through you, to save the whole world. Many people now live without faith; some don't even want to hear about Jesus, but they still want peace and satisfaction! Children, here is the reason why I need your prayer: prayer is the only way to save the human race." (July 30, 1987)
We must realize that Satan is real. He uses us for his own end and purposes. His main purpose is destruction. Destruction of love, peace, faith, family, and life. Just as God gave David 5 stones with which to defeat Goliath, Our Lady is also giving us 5 Stones or Weapons we can use to defeat satan. They are:

  • Daily Prayer (Of the Rosary)
  • Fasting on Wednesdays and Fridays
  • Daily Reading of the Bible
  • Monthly Confession
  • Holy Mass

Peace Walk

date: 18.06.2016.
On Friday, June 24, 2016, we celebrate the Feast of St. John the Baptist, but it is also the Eve of the 35th Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions. As it is already tradition, Peace Walk would start on that day at 6 am outside monastery and shrine of St. Anthony in Humac and the Walk is expected outside St. James church around 10 am on that day. We invite all parishioners and pilgrims, especially the youth, to join this prayer. Holy Masses in Croatian language would be held in the parish church at 7, 8, 11 am and at 7 pm. The Rosary on Apparition Hill will not take place, nor the Way of the Cross on Cross Mountain. The prayer vigil begins at 10 pm with the Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at 10 pm for one hour and the silent Adoration would continue until 5 am on the following day.

Fr.Chad Ripperger and FSSP priests not permitted by the Vatican to affirm the traditional teaching on salvation : Cushingism is obligatory

Fr.Chad Ripperger and FSSP priests not permitted by the Vatican to affirm the traditional teaching on salvation

It is a metaphysical law that we cannot see or know persons saved or about to be saved with the baptism of desire, with or without the baptism of water?

From the blog Amateur Brain Surgeon

The First principles are self evident or known through themselves (per se nota). They are primary truths immediately perceived by the intellect, i.e. without demonstration. In this sense, they are objects of simple intuition. The first principles are perceived in the idea of being, which is the formal object of our intellect. The four main ones are; identity, sufficient reason, causality and finality.
1. The Principle of Identity

Intelligible extra mental being, when apprehended, divides itself into two aspects: being given to the mind and being recognized by the mind. We identify these two objects conceptually different but really identical in formulating the principle of identity "ens est ens".

J. Maritain explains it as each being is what it is". i.e. "ens under two different aspects, being as simply existing and being with a particular essential determination. Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange explains it as "every being is of a determinate nature, i.e. "ens est res". in other words we are concerned with two different transcendentals. But both explanations are only slightly different.

The principle of identity can be formulated in a logical form called principle of non-contradiction: "it is impossible for the same thing to be affirmed and denied at the same time".
'principle of identity': If you accept that the baptism of desire is an exception to all needing to formally enter the Church for salvation( extra ecclesiam nulla salus) then you contradict the principle of identity.Since who could have known of a case of the baptism of desire today or in the past? No one can identify such a case.
For the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 to assume that the baptism of desire was an exception to the Feeneyite interpretation of the dogma EENS,was contrary to the Principle of Non Contradiction.You cannot really say every one needs to formally enter the Church except for some people, like those saved with the baptism of desire.Every one needs to enter but some do not!

The principle of identity is not only a subjective law of thought, but also an objective law of reality. In other words a round square is not only unthinkable, it is also unrealizable. Not even God can create something absurd. He can make an exception to a physical Law (a miracle) but not a metaphysical law.
So it is a metaphysical law that we cannot see or know persons saved or about to be saved with the baptism of desire, with or without the baptism of water?

2. The Principle of Sufficient Reason

In this principle, being divides itself into a different manner than the principle of identity; on the one hand, there is being simply existing, ens. On the other hand, there is being as having a ground for its intelligibility, verum. e connect these two objects of thought in formulating the principle of sufficient reason everything which is possesses a sufficient reason for its existence.

This principle cannot be directly demonstrated, since it is a self evident intuition as all first principles. However it can be indirectly demonstrated by a "reductio ad absurdum" which will attach it to the principle of identity. The demonstration is as follows: the sufficient reason is that in virtue of which something is or that without which something is not. To admit an existing being without a sufficient reason is to admit a being, which exists and does not exist at the same time, since it lacks that without which it is not. A chair without a builder is absurd because this chair at the same time exists and does not exist (it does not have that without which it cannot exist).
So to postulate the baptism of desire as an exception to the dogma EENS or relevant to EENS would violate th Principle of Sufficient Reson?

The principle of sufficient reason can also be enunciated in this way: "everything must have a reason of being, either in itself or in something else". If a property does not necessarily flow from the essence of a thing (i.e. risibilitas from humanitas) then this property must have its explanation elsewhere. The union of things which are in themselves different must have an extrinsic reason. An uncaused contingent being is absurd since it is a thing, which at the same time exists and does not exist by itself.

3. The Principle of Efficient Causality

This principle is the immediate basis of the proofs for the existence of God. It can be attached to the principle of identity (ultimate basis of the 5 ways) through the principle of sufficient reason. The efficient cause is the sufficient reason as a realizing principle, i.e. that by which a thing is accomplished. The intellect once again divides being into two aspects: the one, contingent being which is not self-existent and the other, being which is caused, i.e. being which has a ground exterior to itself (ens ab alio). When we formulate the principle of causality "every effect must have a cause", we enunciate a self-evident truth, namely that a contingent being must have an extrinsic reason of being called efficient cause.

Once again, an effect without a cause is absurd because it is contradictory. It is a being that at the same time would not be dependent on oneself and dependent on oneself. It is therefore clear that we are compelled to identify "ens non a se" (Being not from itself) and "ens ab alio" (being from another) and to acknowledge the absolute necessity of this principle of causality. It is a universal principle, which is valid throughout the created world.
 There is a principle of causality with reference to explicit, objective for us baptism of desire which is relevant an an exception to EENS according to the 16th century missionaries.

It is important to observe, against the nominalists, that the notion of efficient cause is a notion, which is per se intelligible and only per accidens sensible. The intellect alone can perceive directly the reason of being of the effect in its realizing cause. We also have to hold, against the idealists, that the notion of cause is an objective notion (flowing from the notion of being) having an ontological content and not a subjective category of our mind.

4. The Principle of Finality

It is also derived from the principle of sufficient reason. The end, i.e. the reason why an action takes place, is a definite perfection, which directly refers to the agent as its own good, and for the sake of which it acts. Now every agent produces a determinate effect rather than any other and this means that it is pre-ordained towards this particular effect. Common sense tells us that if a pear tree produces pears rather than apples, it a dog barks rather than meows (like a cat) it is not by chance.  They are ordained towards their specific end. Thus the principle of finality "every agent acts for an end" is absolutely universal, whether for rational or non-rational or even inanimate agents.

Here also the intellect is combining two aspects of being, being as an agent (operation) and being as tending towards a good (end). In other words, being is love of a good. The love of this good, of this end is the reason of the agents action. It is in the this sense that we say "Omnem Formam sequitur inclinatio" It can be brought back to the principle of sufficient reason in the following way: If we maintain that an agent can produce a determined effect without being ordained for it, it means that we cannot explain why for instance the eye sees rather than hears. We are on the contrary, compelled to acknowledge that the perfections of the effect must be virtually present in the cause, inasmuch as it has a tendency to produce this effect rather than any other, i.e. it is pre-ordained towards this end. Otherwise we deny the principle of "the reason of being" and therefore of identity. The principle of finality is another of these self-evident truths that the intellect perceives in the light of being.
Is there a principle of finality for the baptism of desire without the baptism of water being known in the present times?

On these first principles rests the whole human knowledge. To doubt their ontological validity in order to reduce them to useful constructions of the mind leads us to deny that ens is the object of the intellect. if we admit that our intellect is able to know, through abstraction, the extra mental being (i.e. the intelligible nature of things by opposition to sensible phenomena) then we have to admit the first principles since they all flow from the primary intuition of being.
So there is no principle to support the view that hypothetical cases of the baptim of desire is objective to be an explicit exception to EENS? So how could Fr.Leonard Feeney say that the baptism of desire exists to be an exception to EENS? Where are the baptism of desire cases? -Lionel Andrades

I affirm Vatican Council II with Feeneyism and not Cushingism while Rome affirms Vatican Council II with Cushingism and persecutes those who use Feeneyism.

(1:26)"We are all Catholics.We are all in union with Rome"-Boniface
Boniface, Rome ( Vatican) is using Cushingism as a theology.I do not. I consider myself a Catholic.
Rome accepts the second part of the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 which in principle assumes hypothetical cases are objectively known in the present times. So they become explicit exceptions to the Feeneyite interpretation of the dogma EENS.For me this is irrational, non traditional and heretical. I still consider myself Catholic and I am not a traditionalist, sedevacantist or liberal.
I affirm Vatican Council II with Feeneyism and not Cushingism while Rome affirms Vatican Council II with Cushingism and persecutes those who use Feeneyism.
I affirm what James Larson calls 'the rule of faith' of the Latin Mass over centuries, which was Feeneyite.Rome welcomes the Latin Mass, as in the case of the FSSP; but with the new ecclesiology, with the new theology, the new rule of faith.They have suppressed the lex credenti of the Latin Mass with the theology of Cushingism.
So you are a traditionalist who is in union with Rome and interprets magisterial documents with irrational Cushingism?
-Lionel Andrades

Pope Benedict could not show the continuity of the Council with other Councils since he was a Cushingite like Bruno Gherardini.

Musings of a Pertinacious Papist

Comments from the blog Musings of a Pertinacious Papist :

"Guest editorial: Fiat continuity and the case of Papa Ratzinger"

Amateur Brain Surgeon said..
In his devastating critique of Vatican Two. "The Ecumenical Vatican Council II A MUCH NEEDED DISCUSSION the great Thomist, Brunero Gherardini, summaries (for ABS anyways) the entire critique on page 297 in the text of his appeal to the Holy Father (Then Ratzinger) seems to me me that it is urgent that you offer some clarity by responding in an authoritative manner to the question about the Council's continuity with the other Councils - not with declamation, but demonstration- and about it's fidelity to the ever vigorous Tradition of the Church.
Pope Benedict could not show the continuity of the Council with other Councils since he was a Cushingite like Bruno Gherardini.They both would re interpret St.Thomas Aquinas with the theology of Cushingism.So proof either way was impossible.

And, of course, there was no response and for a good reason - there is no continuity as can easily be seen in a myriad of examples.
There is no continuity for Cushingites, like you ABS.Change your theology and you will find the continuity.

Look, here is just one - Lumen Gentium teaches that salvation and sanctification can be attained to in heretical faiths #15 ..his sanctifying power is active in them... #16...Those who through no fault of there own do not know the Gospel of Christ if is church....those too may achieve eternal salvation
For me hypothetically  Lumen Gentium(15) teaches that salvation and sanctification can be attained in heretical faiths.O.K so hypothetically if there is a person saved in another religion he would be saved with faith and baptism for me.LG 15 does not say that he will be saved without faith and baptism.
For me this hypothetical case is not an explicit exception to the Feeneyite interpretation of the dogma EENS.
Remember this statement is made based on the error in the second part of the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 which considered hypothetical cases as being explicit and then concluded that they were explicit exceptions to the dogma EENS.

 ..his sanctifying power is active in them... #16..
Again we have a hypothetical reference based on the error of the second part of the Letter of the Holy Office 1949.

.Those who through no fault of there own do not know the Gospel of Christ if is church....those too may achieve eternal salvation
Again it is important to note that this line comes to us based on the error in the 1949 Letter which confused what is hypothetical as being objective, what is invisible was considered being visible.In 2016 we do not know and cannot know any one saved through no fault of his his own, for not knowing the Gospel of Christ.
This is like the hypothetical cases of Fr.Charles Curran, in moral theology, used to reject traditional teaching on mortal sin.

PFFFT Balderdash
 With Feeneyism as a theology Lumen Gentium would not contradict the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS or the Syllabus of Errors.

ABS was learnt a prayer for conversions - a prayer approved for an Indulgence by Pope Pius IX and it appears in The Raccolta as originally published by the Benzinger Brothers in 1957; ABS has the December 2010 second reprint of it produced by Loreto Publications and in that text, the orthodox prayer begins on page 499

O Mary, Mother of mercy and Refuge of sinners, we beseech thee, be pleased to look with pitiful eyes upon poor heretics and schismatics. Thou who art the Seat of Wisdom, enlighten the minds that are miserably enfolded in the darkness of ignorance and sin, that they may clearly know that the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Roman Church is the one true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither holiness nor salvation can be found. Finish the work of their conversion by obtaining for them the grace to accept all the truths of our Holy Faith, and to submit themselves to the supreme Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth; that so, being united with us in the sweet chains of divine charity, there may soon be only one fold under the same one shepherd; and may we all, O glorious Virgin, sing forever with exultation: Rejoice, O Virgin Mary, thou only hast destroyed all heresies in the whole world. Amen.

(Hail Mary, three times. An Indulgence of 500 days (S.C. Prop. of the Faith., Dec. 30, 1868; S.P. Ap., March 18, 1936, and June 10, 1949)
The theology of this prayer is Feeneyite.

ABS hasn't looked in the "revised" Raccolta but it likely was silently killed because it is orthodox and opposed to Ecumenism, that indifferent anthropocentric baptismal pool, into which Tradition was repeatedly plunged and submerged in 1962-1965 and which action produced a dead water-logged corpus of novelty to which we are putatively bound to worship as the Catholic enlightenment.
You are not bound to worship as such if you make the distinction between Cushingism and Feeneyism.

More and more men are being awakened to the riotous result of the rupture from Tradition defended by declarations of continuity as events get more and more out of control because Franciscus who has gotten SO bad than even Dr Jeff Mirius is going public with his criticisms of Franciscus who, in addition to being the biggest recruiter for sedevacantism, has even unsettled the heretofore implacable and immovable papolatrists.
Jeff Mirus interprets the dogma EENS and Vatican Council II  with Cushingism.With Feeneyism Vatican Council II does have a continuity with Tradition.

Sursum Corda by Brother André Marie

Sursum Corda
On Sunday, June 12, our little IHM School had its graduation. Two young ladies made up the entire graduation class. What follows is the very brief opening speech I gave at our commencement exercises. At some point in their intellectual formation at IHM School, these young ladies have learned the definition of truth — specifically that of logical truth....!why-ihm/c1y6n

With these factual and objective mistakes in Vatican Council II any Catholic could be tempted to reject it and revert to the Council of Trent

When Pope Benedict cites Vatican Council II authoritatively  we could remind ourself that there are factual mistakes in the Council text.So we are not obliged to accept these mistakes of the Council Fathers.

1.It was a mistake to assume that the baptism of desire (BOD) and being saved in invincible ignorance(I.I) were physically explicit. They are not.Vatican Council II infers this( AG 7, LG 14).
2.It was a mistake to assume hypothetical cases are not hypothetical.Vatican Council II makes this mistake.
These are some of the mistakes  in the text of Vatican Council II.
It is a mistake in Vatican Council II to have omitted directly and specifically mentioning the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS), the Feeneyite interpretation.Since it was wrongly assumed that BOD and I.I are explicit and so are exceptions.

3.Aside from the mistakes in the text of Vatican Council II there are mistakes also in the interpretation of Vatican Council II.
It is a mistake in the interpretation of Vatican Council II to assume that the Syllabus of Errors is wrong or obsolete.1
The mistake is there because of the theology of Cushingism. So there emerge exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS) and the old ecclesiology. This  then would contradict the Syllabus of Errors.The conclusion would be  Vatican Council II contradicts the Syllabus when the fault is there only with the theology.If Feeneyite EENS is not contradicted, the Syllabus is not contradicted.If Feeneyism is the theology then the Syllabus of Errors is not contradicted.
4.A mistake emerges in the interpretation of Vatican Council II, when Pope Benedict, does not affirm the old ecclesiology, the 'triumphalistic ecclesiology'.Since he does not state that  Vatican Council II (AG 7, LG 14) states all need faith and baptism for salvation and 'the Church is the new people of God'(NA 4), Catholics are the new Chosen People, they are the Elect.Vatican Council II (AG 7, LG 14, NA 4) is saying outside the Church there is no salvation.It is affirming the 'triumphalistic ecclesiology', the old ecclesiology.This is the Vatican Council II that Pope Benedict does not seem aware of.
So with these objective and factual mistakes in the text of Vatican Council II and in its interpretation any Catholic could be tempted to reject Vatican Council II and fall back on the trusted Council of Trent.

I do not reject Vatican Council II since I interpret it completely with Feeneyism. The superflous reference to BOD and I.I for me , are references to what is implicit and invisible.So they cannot contradict EENS.
UR 3, NA 2, LG 8, LG 16 etc also refer to hypothetical cases for me.So they do not contradict  the old ecclesiology based on Feeneyite EENS.(Note there is a Feeneyite EENS and a Cushingite EENS.The Cushingite EENS interprets the original EENS with BOD being explicit and being an exception.).
If this is not clear,it could still be asked what are the factual mistakes, why do you call them factual?
Why do I call them factual?
It is a fact of life that we do not know any one in the present times saved with the baptism of desire or in invincible ignorance, with or without the baptism of water in the Catholic Church.There is no such case. There cannot be any such case for us human beings.So these persons do not and cannot exist for us in 2016 or in the past.It is a fact of life that they these persons are not objective.
So why are these irrelevant cases mentioned in Vatican Council II?
They are mentioned in Vatican Council II  since the Council Fathers considered them objective, explicit, existing in real life.This is a factual mistake.It is a fact of life that these cases are not objective.If someone is saved with the baptism of desire and without the baptism of water he would be in Heaven and we would not know about it.It cannot be a person  physically visible.Also if  someone on earth is to be saved without the baptism of water, no human being could know about it.
So this is the objective mistake in the text of Vatican Council II.
When it is known, when Catholics are aware of the factual error in Vatican Council II the religious communities, for example, can re-interpret the Council.

The Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) could continue to reject a Vatican Council II with the factual mistake due to the Cushingite theology.They can re-interpret and accept the Council with the Feeneyite theology.
They could ask the Vatican and especially Pope Benedict to do the same.

Similarly the Franciscans of the Immaculate or any of the thousands of religious communities, could announce that they accept Vatican Council II.They interpret it with the Feeneyite theology and reject the Cushingite influence. So they endorse Vatican Council II in harmony with the Syllabus of Errors and extra ecclesiam nulla salus, according to the 16th century missionaries.
