:salute:

According to the Church's teaching, all those who die in the state of justification are infallibly saved. Fr. Feeney made an exception for this by saying that those who had been justified by baptism of desire only could not be saved. When asked where they would go, he said that he didn't know.

Can you post the infallible teaching declaring salvation to the unbaptized just?

With all due respect, you are very subtly changing the topic of discussion.

This discussion does not concern an "infallible teaching declaring salvation to the unbaptized just". This discussion concerns Fr. Feeney's views on justification.

These are the facts:

(1) Justification is, effectively, the state of sanctifying grace. (Council of Trent)

(2) A person who dies in the state of sanctifying grace is infallibly saved. (Council of Trent)

(3) Fr. Feeney acknowledged that baptism of desire can put a soul into a state of justification.

(4) Fr. Feeney denied that such a person who dies in the state of justification (devoid of water baptism) could be saved.
Bread of Life, Chapter 7 Wrote:Q. What. does "Baptism of Desire" mean?
A. It means the belief in the necessity of Baptism of Water for salvation, and a full intent to receive it.

Q. Can "Baptism of Desire" save you?
A. Never.

Q. Could "Baptism of Desire" save you if you really believed it could?
A. It could not.

Q. Could it possibly suffice for you to pass into a state of justification?
A. It could.

Q. If you got into the state of justification with the aid of "Baptism of Desire," and then failed to receive Baptism of Water, could you be saved?
A. Never.

Fr. Feeney then goes on to explain that a soul can be in the state of justification (state of sanctifying grace) via Baptism of Desire yet not be saved. This is his own summary of his answer:
Bread of Life, Chapter 7 Wrote:Q. Can anyone now be saved without Baptism of Water?
A. No one can be saved without Baptism of Water.

Q. Are the souls of those who die in the state of justification saved, if they have not received Baptism of Water?
A. No. They are not saved.

Q. Where do these souls go if they die in the state of justification but have not received Baptism of Water?
A. I do not know.

Q. Do they go to Hell?
A. No.

Q. Do they go to Heaven?
A. No.

Q. Are there any such souls?
A. I do not know! Neither do you!

Q. What are we to say to those who believe there are such souls?
A. We must say to them that they are making reason prevail over Faith, and the laws of probability over the Providence of God.

Whether or not desire for baptism can, of itself, save a soul, the belief that a person who attains to the state of justification does not go to Heaven is contrary to the Council of Trent and the constant unwavering teaching of the Church, which proclaims that those who die in the state of justification are saved.

You see, in attempting to counter one error, Fr. Feeney simply--and most certainly lamentably--made another error. He reacted boldly to one error with another, in the same way that the Monothelites and Monophysites reacted to Arian heresy by going to the extent of practically denying Christ's humanity. It is a lamentable fact, no doubt, but a fact nonetheless.

So the Fr. Feeney debates, which always center around whether or Fr. Feeney believed in baptism of desire, are radically offtrack. Instead of discussing whether baptism of desire can save a soul, the discussion should center around Fr. Feeney's views on justification, which apparently deviated from the Church's teachings.
