Immaculate Conception, No Big Deal (Bp. Fellay)

  • Catholics know that The Blessed Mother of God, Mary Most Holy, was conceived in a state of grace. This was a great event in history, for which the Church holds her as the most perfect human being ever created by God (Jesus Christ is God and man). Apparently, Bp. Fellay thinks that acquiring sanctifying grace is no big deal, for in the quote below, he creates a Hindu (could have been anyone in any false religion) who is born in a state of grace or even put himself in a state of grace. This is what they teach at the SSPX seminaries. It is no wonder he wants to join the Vatican II sect.


    Bishop Bernard Fellay, Conference in Denver, Co., Feb. 18, 2006:

    “We know that there are two other baptisms, that of desire and that of blood. These produce an invisible but real link with Christ but do not produce all of the effects which are received in the baptism of water… And the Church has always taught that you have people who will be in heaven, who are in the state of grace, who have been saved without knowing the Catholic Church.  We know this. And yet, how is it possible if you cannot be saved outside the Church? It is absolutely true that they will be saved through the Catholic Church because they will be united to Christ, to the Mystical Body of Christ, which is the Catholic Church. It will, however, remain invisible, because this visible link is impossible for them. Consider a Hindu in Tibet who has no knowledge of the Catholic Church. He lives according to his conscience and to the laws which God has put into his heart. He can be in the state of grace, and if he dies in this state of grace, he will go to heaven.” (The Angelus, “A Talk Heard Round the World,” April, 2006, p. 5.)

  • Just to not assume +Fellay is Satan, I will give him the benefit of the doubt that he at some point did not say the Hindu was immaculately conceived, and he was referring to the individual having made a perfect act of contrition as well

    Bishop Fellay is just teaching what he was taught at the SSPX seminary and what they continue to teach at the seminary. He believes that Hindus, Mohamedans, Buddhists, Jews..... can be saved without baptism, without desiring baptism, without desiring to be Catholic, without belief in Jesus Christ and the Holy Trinity, and without a perfect act of contrition. He believes that they can be saved by their belief in a god that rewards. They call it implicit faith.

    Do you think he is Satan for teaching that?

  • This thread defines "click bait."
    It has nothing whatsoever to do with the Immaculate Conception, just another smear tactic.

    Yeah this is utterly unrelated to the immaculate conception.  This is just a really, really weird way to bash Bishop Fellay for being on a side of the invincible ignorance debate that OP disagrees with.

    Doesn't Bishop Williamson hold this too?  Archbishop Lefebvre did as well.

  • This topic has nothing whatsoever to do with the Immaculate Conception of Mary.  And Bp Fellay, for whom I normally have little respect, should, nevertheless, not be impugned for allegedly declaring or implying that the Immaculate Conception  is "no big deal."  The bishop has never, to my knowledge, said or implied any such thing.
    Matthew needs to go through the CI topics and cull out all the worthless ones.  This is just one example of the many threads that are not worth the cyber space they're written in.

    It has everything to do with the Immaculate Conception because here you have a Hindu who Bp.

What he is actually teaching is teaching salvation by implicit faith, which is what Abp.

They call it implicit faith because they say that the religion that the person practices shows implicitly that he believes in Christ and the Holy Trinity. This implicit faith trumps all of the dogmas on EENS and thus the person can put himself in a state of grace.

    There is not saint that ever taught such a thing, but it is what 99% of people who defend baptism of desire believe, like yourself for example. Don't you believe that?

    If Bishop Fellay were to say the quote below to me, I would respond to him by asking; " Aren't you belittling the Immaculate Conception by teaching that a Hindu can be in a state of sanctifying grace, how did he get rid of original sin without baptism, was he born in a state of sanctifying grace like the Blessed Mother?

    Bishop Bernard Fellay, Conference in Denver, Co., Feb. 18, 2006:

    “We know that there are two other baptisms, that of desire and that of blood.

    Catechism of the Council of Trent, Tan Books, p. 243: “For the Eucharist is the end of all the Sacraments, and the symbol of unity and brotherhood in the Church, outside of which none can attain grace.”

    Catechism of the Council of Trent, Comparisons among the Sacraments, p. 154: “Though all the Sacraments possess a divine and admirable efficacy, it is well worthy of special remark that all are not of equal necessity or of equal dignity, nor is the signification of all the same.
        “Among them three are said to be necessary beyond the rest, although in all three this necessity is not of the same kind. The universal and absolute necessity of Baptism our Savior has declared in these words: Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God (Jn. 3:5).”

    Catechism of the Council of Trent, On Baptism – Necessity of Baptism, pp. 176-177: “If the knowledge of what has been hitherto explained be, as it is, of highest importance to the faithful, it is no less important to them to learn that THE LAW OF BAPTISM, AS ESTABLISHED BY OUR LORD, EXTENDS TO ALL, so that unless they are regenerated to God through the grace of Baptism, be their parents Christians or infidels, they are born to eternal misery and destruction.  Pastors, therefore, should often explain these words of the Gospel: Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God (Jn. 3:5).”

    Catechism of the Council of Trent, Definition of Baptism, p. 163: “Unless, says our Lord, a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God (Jn. 3:5); and, speaking of the Church, the Apostle says, cleansing it by the laver of water in the word of life (Eph. 5:26).  Thus it follows that Baptism may be rightly and accurately defined: The Sacrament of regeneration by water in the word.”

     
    Catechism of the Council of Trent, Baptism made obligatory after Christ’s Resurrection, p. 171: “Holy writers are unanimous in saying that after the Resurrection of our Lord, when He gave His Apostles the command to go and teach all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, the law of Baptism became obligatory on all who were to be saved.”


    Catechism of the Council of Trent, Matter of Baptism - Fitness, p. 165: “Upon this subject pastors can teach in the first place that water, which is always at hand and within the reach of all, was the fittest matter of a Sacrament which is necessary to all for salvation.”


    Catechism of the Council of Trent, On Baptism – Second Effect: Sacramental Character, p. 159: “In the character impressed by Baptism, both effects are exemplified.  By it we are qualified to receive the other Sacraments, and the Christian is distinguished from those who do not profess the faith.”

    I think "despising the Catholic Church", and "invincibly ignorant" are probably contradictory concepts.  I'm not certain its possible to be saved without a belief in the Holy Trinity, and I've never said I'm *certain* of this, but if they were, it would still be by the grace of God, not because they "put themselves in a State of Grace" but because God somehow did so. And nobody says any Hindu is born in a state of grace.

    More to the point, this still has nothing to do with the immaculate conception.

    If one says a Hindu is in a state of grace or can get in a state of grace without baptism, whether they know it or not, they are belittling the Immaculate Conception and the sacrament of baptism. Anyone that thinks that way, should read the Catechism of Trent quotes above, it is just teaching what the dogmas say. God does not make the obligation of baptism to later break it by giving sanctifying grace to any unbaptized in any or no religion. That excuse is just a novel end run around ALL the dogmas on baptism.

    Read the Catechism of Trent quotes. Those that have eyes to see, let them see.
