Not that many seem much to care about Fr. Feeney truth, but the following has the history of their story. They wanted it out as the media and liberal Catholics ("pious frauds") - in lock-step with the condemned Modernist Church - would not give their efforts to defend Catholic Doctrine a fair hearing. They were quick to bury the Center and Fr. Feeney, as many here are quick to do. But - oh! - we must hear the story of Arch. Lefebvre, we must read about him and understand his point of view and give him fair time and etc. etc. Maybe God raises up other people besides the Archbishop - even just a "lowly" priest (who was considered the finest theologian in the US). Where is objectivity, a love of truth - and charity in this regard?? It is grievous to see how some people go at Fr. Feeney as though he is the second coming of Martin Luther. At least say that his intention was right. Pray, with detachment, to the Holy Ghost. You will see "the finger of God is here." https://hieronymopolis.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/architects-of-confusion-scanned-by-hieronymopolis.pdf
To mention again, the original version of the Catechism of the Council of Trent has no mention of Bap. of Blood or Desire, but makes WATER an absolute necessity. It's what the Council of Trent says and it is of definition.
If St. Thomas Aquinas lived after the following definitions were made - he died in 1274 - it is assumed that as a Catholic and priest and teacher and preacher he would have dropped any "desire" theory he held --
#2 “We declare, say, define, and pronounce that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” (Pope Boniface VIII, the Bull Unam Sanctam, 1302.)
#3 “The most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics, can have a share in life eternal; but that they will go into the eternal fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that only those remaining within this unity can profit by the sacraments of the Church unto salvation, and they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, their almsgivings, their other works of Christian piety and the duties of a Christian soldier. No one, let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Christ, can be saved, unless he remain within the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church.” (Pope Eugene IV, the Bull Cantate Domino, 1441.)
And thank God and Our Lady for OLOP and Fr. Bitzer.
