Archbishop Lefebvre is in agreement with Fr.Leonard Feeney -SSPX Prior In Italy

Post  Lionel Andrades on Fri Feb 08, 2013 5:51 am


Yesterday evening in Rome I met the Prior of the Society of St.Pius X (SSPX) community at Albano, Italy. I mentioned that I had a question about Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.

Archbishop Lefebvre said that a Hindu could be saved in Tibet in his religion.This person saved ' in certain circumstances', and not the general rule, could be saved by Jesus Christ and his Mystical Body the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation.He agreed that this was a possibility, known only to God.I then reminded him that when we last met he had said that physically we are unable to see someone saved in invincible ignorance and the baptism of desire. We cannot see the dead, he repeated, they are not visible to us on earth.

So when Archbishop Lefebvre said a non Catholic could be saved in another religion in invincible ignorance etc, he was not contradicting the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus nor Tradition in general.Since every one needs to be a visible member of the Church for salvation, according to the dogma, and there are no known exceptions, in Tibet or elsewhere in the present times.

I was glad with this answer and I thanked him and was ready to leave. It was clear for me that he was saying that Archbishop Lefebvre did not contradict Fr.Leonard Feeney.

It was at that moment a lady talking to others nearby, said aloud something in their conversation, something about the "archbishop of Boston".When I overheard this I called Fr.Aldo Rossi's attention to that remark. I asked him if he knew about Fr.Leonard Feeney in the Archdiocese of Boston.

I explained that since Fr.Leonard Feeney held the traditional interpretation of the dogma Cantate Domino,Council of Florence 1441 he did not contradict Archbishop Lefebvre who said a non Catholic could be saved in his religion.

Fr.Aldo Rossi agreed that it was not a contradiction of Fr.Leonard Feeney he said the same.Every one needs to be a visible member of the Catholic Church and there are no exceptions.Since the dead saved in another religion are not known to us humans.

It may be mentioned that there are traditionalists who are do not realize that the baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance can only be accepted as possibilities, hypothetical cases. They are not exceptions to Ad Gentes 7, Vatican Council II which says all need faith and baptism for salvation.Neither are these cases known only to God exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus which Pope Pius XII called an 'infallible statement"(Letter of the Holy Office 1949).

Since these traditionalists and sedevacantists assume that these cases are visible to us, they are critical of anyone who says a non Catholic, 'in certain circumstances' can be saved in other religions. For them this would be a contradiction of Cantate Domino,the dogma on exclusive salvation in only the Catholic Church.
