Kindly cite one post-Tridentine, distinguished* theologian who interpreted the Council of Trent and Ex Omnibus Afflictionibus in the same manner as you both have.  I have trouble following the private interpretations of laymen, neither of whom has a doctorate in sacred theology.  Thank you!  :)

That's almost too easy SouthpawLink...............Fr. Feeney was certainly distinguished, he is one that comes immediately to mind.

......the Rev. Leonard Feeney, 67, a defrocked Jesuit who in the '30s and '40s was one of the nation's best-known Catholic theological popularizers and convert seekers. Time Magazine Jan 01, 1965


Father Feeney’s genius as a writer, speaker and theologian, was attested to by some of the most prominent Catholic figures of his day.

John Cardinal Wright once referred to Fr. Feeney as "The greatest theologian in the Catholic Church today."

Bishop Fulton Sheen once said that the only substitute he would allow on his radio show was Father Feeney.

Frank Sheed, of Sheed and Ward said, "For Father Feeney, dogma is not only true; it is breathlessly exciting. That is his special vocation. . . to make his readers feel the thrill."

During Father's days at Oxford, Lord Cecil, the famous Oxford don admitted, "I am getting more out of my association with Leonard Feeney than he could possibly get from me." Of the Jesuit's writing, Cecil said, "it shines with a pure, clear light."

The Rev. John J. McEleny, S.J., Fr. Feeney's Jesuit Provincial, called him "The greatest theologian we have in the United States, by far."

The greatest theologian we have in the United States, by far." - — Rev. John J. McEleny, S.J., (Father's Jesuit Provincial)

After Father Feeney’s death in 1978, the great Scottish apostle of Christ the King, Hamish Fraser, eulogized him as "one of the most outstanding prophets of our time.
