You're breaking the rule of non-contradiction there ma'am. The ecclisology of return IS seeking the return of souls to the one true church.

"Ecclesiology of return"  means talking about unity in terms of non-Catholic Christians returning to the Church.  A person could have this unity as a goal while believing that a different way to talk about it would be more effective.
Evangilization by deception? No thanks. All this has gotten us is a world where the vast majority of Catholics don't believe there is such a thing as one true church. And that's a fact.

It is not about deception.  If you and I went shopping together and you asked a store clerk where we could find solanum lycopersicum, I would advise you not to use that term.  I would tell you to ask him about tomatoes instead.  A botanist will know what you mean if you say solanum lycopersicum, but it is not an effective way to communicate with a clerk.  Using a more effective term is not deception.
Look, if you believe - as the Church has for 2000+ years - that souls outside her must enter her for the salvation of their souls, then you do not reject the ecclisiology of return. you can not believe the former and reject the latter. If you reject the latter you deny the former and have lost the faith. Period.

Spin it how you like. The word games are dragging souls to hell because those who should speak the truths of the faith boldly are worried more about offending people with the truth than in offending God with half truths and deceptions.
You cease to proclaim the truth that souls outside the One True Church need to enter her for salvation, eventually you will no longer believe it. And if you somehow manage to still believe it, your kids won't. we're about two generations into this mess and the evidence is all around us. Good grief.
