If you believe the modernists that they did not intend [to] change Catholic doctrine, you have missed the the last boat off of the island.
They did not intend to follow canonical procedure to change it, they simply stopped teaching the old and started to teach the new. And prior teaching was now subject to the new "deeper" understanding. (heretical).
The council cannot be "read in the light of Tradition", because is was not written to conform but to overturn Traditional doctrine, and it is a false proposition to say that it can. Its authors and the conciliar popes have admitted to this.
You do not make a document Traditional by reading into it what you want it to say when it was intended to say another thing. To think that you can and make everything all right is an error.
The conciliar church is a heresy because it is built upon ecumenism which is a grave heresy, in that it denies that the Church of God is present in the world. It instead proposes that the Church [is] broken and in pieces and will only be whole and present when the parts of the Truth which are contained in the various Christian [sects] and the other religions unite to bring it together.
Lumen Gentium is not ambiguous it is heretical on its face, and in its words and intent.
Certainly LG was written with the intent to deceive -- and their scheme of deception included imprecise language that would hide their real objective. One way of attempting to make the best of it (which is really a waste of time, but anyway...) is to accuse this "seemingly awkward text" of being ambiguous, and then endeavoring to clear it up by using more traditional vocabulary.
That's a nice intention, but it amounts to making a silk purse of a sow's ear. The authors deliberately chose awkward vocabulary in order to deceive, and in order to drag novelties into the Church right in the open for all to see.
It seems to me that the only way of overcoming its defects and error is to trash the whole thing, not to attempt to fix it.
It was not the words that they were sneaking in, the unsuitable words were used to sneak in heterodox ideas, False ideas as a subtext to the seemingly awkward words on the page.
