The Bible Reading at Holy Mass today : Jesus stood over her, rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up immediately and waited on them.
GospelAfter Jesus left the synagogue, he entered the house of Simon.
Simon’s mother-in-law was afflicted with a severe fever,
and they interceded with him about her.
He stood over her, rebuked the fever, and it left her.
She got up immediately and waited on them.
At sunset, all who had people sick with various diseases
brought them to him.
He laid his hands on each of them and cured them.
And demons also came out from many, shouting, “You are the Son of God.”
But he rebuked them and did not allow them to speak
because they knew that he was the Christ.
At daybreak, Jesus left and went to a deserted place.
The crowds went looking for him, and when they came to him,
they tried to prevent him from leaving them.
But he said to them, “To the other towns also
I must proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God,
because for this purpose I have been sent.”
And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea.LK 4:38-44

Wednesday of the Twenty-Second Week in Ordinary Time
It is often said that if it was not for Archbishop Lefebvre and the Traditional Latin Mass ( TLM) the Catholic Faith would not exist , as it was known over the centuries.This is not true.There are the traditionalists, Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary( MICM) who attend the TLM with different doctrines.It is not the same as the SSPX on the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS).Then there is the Greek Mass which pre-dates the TLM.The Catholic priests offer it with the new ecclesiology i.e the baptism of desire is objectively seen and so is a personally known exception to the dogma EENS(Feeneyite).
Then I attend the TLM and Novus Ordo Mass with the old ecclesiology.The baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance refer to invisible cases for me.
So it is the same liturgy but with different doctrines and ecclesiology.The liturgy does not determine the Faith.The liturgy has not preserved the Faith.
The ecclesiology of Archbishop Lefebvre seems confused.He supports Tradition according to the saints and popes and also negates Tradition according to the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 of Pope Pius XII and the popes who followed him.He supports EENS( Feeneyite) according to the pre-Council of Trent magisterium but also supports EENS ( Cushingite) according to the post Council of Trent magisterium.Fr.Francois Laisney of the SSPX criticizes EENS( Feeneyite) while the 2012 SSPX General Chapter Statement supports it.
Today when Cardinal Raymond Burke for example, offers Holy Mass ad orientem it is a rupture with the TLM ecclesiology of the 16th century missionaries.
If he rejected the second part of the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 and accepted only the first part he would return to the old ecclesiology. He would be saying hypothetical cases are just hypothetical.He returns to the old 16th century ecclesiology of the missionaries which Pope Benedict XVI rejected recently. The popes interpret hypothetical cases in Vatican Council II as being personally known and so are exceptions to EENS( Feeneyite).
Cardinal Raymond Burke has to make a simple switch mentally and recognise that hypothetical cases of the baptism of desire and blood and being saved in invincible ignorance are always theoretical for us, accepted in principle,in good faith, speculatively.
He has to recognise that Vatican Council II has made a mistake indirectly when it supposes hypothetical cases are not hypothetical.It made a mistake directly when it mentions being saved with the baptism of desire and invincible ignorance. This should not have been there in the text of AG 7 and LG 16.Since it is a reference to non existing people in our reality.The baptism of desire etc is not relevant to all needing 'faith and baptism' for salvation(AG 7).
So Church doctrine, ecclesiology was not changed when Pope Paul VI offered the first Mass in Italian.Since in his mind ecclesiology could still have been the same for him.
I attend Mass with EENS( Feeneyite), Vatican Council II( Feneyite-no known exceptions to EENS), the Catechism of the Catholic Church ( Feeneyite-hypothetical cases are not objectively known), Nicene Creed ( Feeneyite-there is one known baptism for the forgiveness of sins and not three),Letter of the Holy Office 1949( Feeneyite-first part of the Letter), ecumemism of return( Feeneyite-since there is no known salvation outside the Church), inter-religious dialogue ( Feeneyite-outside the Church there is no salvation), Social Reign of Christ the King ( Feeneyite-since outside the Church there is no salvation), the non separation of Church and State( Feeneyite-since outside the Church there is no salvation),eschatology( Feeneyite-there are only Catholics in Heaven since outside the Church there is no salvation) and the old ecclesiology( Feeneyite-based on EENS Feeneyite).
For Cardinal Burke, Bishop Athanasius Schneider and Bishop Bernard Fellay it is the opposite. They offer Holy Mass with EENS(Cushingite), Vatican Council II( Cushingite-there are known exceptions to EENS), the Catechism of the Catholic Church ( Cushingite-hypothetical cases are objectively known in 2016), Nicene Creed ( Cushingite-there is not one known baptism for the forgiveness of sins but three or more ),Letter of the Holy Office 1949( Cushingite-second part of the Letter is accepted which contradicts the first part), ecumemism of return( Cushingite-this ecumenism is rejected since allegedly there is known salvation outside the Church,there is the Anonymous Christian).It is the new ecumenism for them.For them inter-religious dialogue is Cushingite- since outside the Church there is known salvation.The Social Reign of Christ the King is Cushingite-since outside the Church there is known salvation.The non separation of Church and State is the result of Cushingism since outside the Church there is known salvation.Eschatology is Cushingite-there are not only Catholics in Heaven but non Catholics too, since outside the Church there is salvation.Ecclesiology is Cushingite-based on EENS Cushingite.-Lionel Andrades
