Lombardi says Franciscans of the Immaculate a 'delicate subject' : ignores Vatican's doctrinal ambiguities

Post  Lionel Andrades on Sat Jul 05, 2014 4:43 am

Fr.Frederico Lombardi S.J, the Director of the Vatican's Press Office has issued a general statement in his private capacity, to the many people who have written to him, concerned about the community the Franciscans of the Immaculate.He writes that this is a delicate subject and he ignores two basic doctrinal points related to the Franciscan Sisters and Friars of the Immaculate (FI).
The two points are :-

The Holy Office 1949 in the Letter to the Archbishop of Boston relative to Fr.Leonard Feeney has wrongly assumed that implicit ( invisible) baptism of desire was explicit(visible) for us.Then it was assumed that these 'visible' cases were defacto (in real life) exceptions to extra ecclesiam nulla salus .They were exceptions to the dogma according to Fr.Leonard Feeney.For the Holy Office all do not need the baptism of water for salvation( defacto) since there were defacto cases known of the baptism of desire.It was concluded that there was salvation outside the church as if one could name an exception in the present times.
The Holy Office mixed up invisible-visible, hypothetical-in reality distinctions.Hypothetical subjects cannot be de facto exceptions to all needing  the baptism of water for salvation.
The Franciscans of the Immaculate have to accept this irrational reasoning . Then they have to extend it to Vatican Council II.
Nostra Aetate 2 , 'a ray of the Truth' is always implicit (invisible) for us.The  Vatican Curia however assumes that it is visible for us ( defacto).Then they conclude that these cases of the deceased, saved with the baptism of desire, and now visible, are explicit ( defacto) exceptions to extra ecclesiam nulla salus and Tradition.
The Franciscans of the Immaculate have to use this reasoning in the interpretation of Vatican Counncil II  (NA 2,LG 16,LG 8,UR 3,AG 11 etc)
There was no comment from Fr.Frederico Lombardi regarding these two points mentioned in the e-mail many people sent him.-L.A
