Leonard Feeney, Ora Pro Nobis!

Once again, Rome proves herself removed from the One True Faith! Based on the initial reports, I was at first overjoyed that the Pope may have been returning to the Truly Traditional Church. "If it isn't Catholic, then it's not a proper church, says Pope" "Pope Calls Non-Catholic Churches 'Defective'" the headlines read. I almost removed the Holy See from the Index, but before doing so, I stumbled upon the actual document (TRULY FAITHFUL BEWARE!) It turns out that Ratzinger-Benedict is in actuality still obstinate in his warm and fuzzy ultra-LIBERAL ways!

The document reads: "It is possible, according to Catholic doctrine, to affirm correctly that the Church of Christ is present and operative in the churches and ecclesial Communities not yet fully in communion with the Catholic Church, on account of the elements of sanctification and truth that are present in them." "It follows that these separated churches and Communities, though we believe they suffer from defects, are deprived neither of significance nor importance in the mystery of salvation. In fact the Spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as instruments of salvation, whose value derives from that fullness of grace and of truth which has been entrusted to the Catholic Church"

THE HORROR! Whatever happened to "Outside the Church NO Salvation"? No, we shall not bow to such BLATANT ECUMENISM! The Truthiness shall prevail!

Now thoust see why mine godly Mother named me after the Servant of God Leonard Feeney. He was a true and loyal defender of Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus, unlike the Modernist heretics in the CDF who tried to silence him!

But Truthiness is never silent! It is always loud and angry!!

What about monks who take a vow of silence?

PS: That was referring to, "But Truthiness is never silent! It is always loud and angry!!"

Do you not admit that other religions contain some truth? Protestants believe that Christ is God. That is truth. Therefore, they contain some truth. Pope Benedict is completely clear that they do not contain the whole truth and are therefore defective.

However, because these religions contain some truth, they are connected to the Catholic Church, because the Church teaches only truth.

Now, these people have the ability to gain salvation because they are united to the Church in a special way, though they are not in full communion with her. Often such people are not capable of learning the truth because of invincible ignorance. God knows whether or not they are truly trying to find the truth...not you.

Thus, because truth comes to us through the Church, there is no salvation outside of the Church. These people are connected to the Church because they believe they have found the truth, and God will not refuse them if they truly try to live their lives according to his will.

Fr. Karl Josef Becker, S.J.,cardinal designate says the Church of Christ is identified with the Catholic Church. The Church of Christ is the Catholic Church. (1)

The Jesuit priest who is to be made a cardinal this week is saying extra ecclesiam nulla salus. The true Church of Christ exists in only the Catholic Church he says and elements of this one true Church could exist in the Orthodox Christian churches and those in partial communion with the Catholic Church.(2)

The cardinal designate is affirming the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus which says all need to convert into the Catholic Church for salvation. The dogma Cantate Domino, Council of Florence specifically mentions the Orthodox Christians and Protestants.

According to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus the Church of Christ is the Catholic Church.

Lumen Gentium 8 and 16 suggest that there is the possibility of a non Catholic being saved however since these cases are not defacto known to us Vatican Council II does not contradict the dogma.-Lionel Andrades
