Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI: The Catholic Church Is Absolutely Necessary for Salvation – Proclaims the Dogma of Extra Ecclesiam Nula Solas
Pius belief has it that very few of the Old Testament prophets were assured heaven – We know of The Holy Innocents , we know of the Immaculate Conception (Our Queen) we know of the predestination of Saint Joseph and Saint John the Baptist to which Catholic predestined Scriptures primarily apply Many others were lifted from Limbo when the Jesus rose from the dead – The graves opened up and many people roamed the byways Mathew 27th Chapter
51And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top even to the bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks were rent. 52And the graves were opened: and many bodies of the saints that had slept arose, 53And coming out of the tombs after his resurrection, came into the holy city, and appeared to many. 54Now the centurion and they that were with him watching Jesus, having seen the earthquake, and the things that were done, were sore afraid, saying: Indeed this was the Son of God.
The Catacombs of San Gennaro – Depicts Bishop Quodvultdeus quite well – He converted many Arians, which today are called Adventists , which was his apologetics specialty of the Faith https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catacombs_of_San_Gennaro and he preached of the Holy Innocents to them as recorded in the reflection section of the Second Reading of the new Rite’s Liturgy of the Hours – Office of the Readings, as we invoke their intercession in union with our Lady unto the feet of our Savior & King, Jesus Christ
From a sermon by Saint Quodvultdeus, bishop “They cannot speak, yet they bear witness to Christ”
A tiny child is born, who is a great king. Wise men are led to him from afar. They come to adore one who lies in a manger and yet reigns in heaven and on earth. When they tell of one who is born a king, Herod is disturbed. To save his kingdom he resolves to kill him, though if he would have faith in the child, he himself would reign in peace in this life and for ever in the life to come.
Why are you afraid, Herod, when you hear of the birth of a king? He does not come to drive you out, but to conquer the devil. But because you do not understand this you are disturbed and in a rage, and to destroy one child whom you seek, you show your cruelty in the death of so many children.
You are not restrained by the love of weeping mothers or fathers mourning the deaths of their sons, nor by the cries and sobs of the children. You destroy those who are tiny in body because fear is destroying your heart. You imagine that if you accomplish your desire you can prolong your own life, though you are seeking to kill Life himself.
Yet your throne is threatened by the source of grace – so small, yet so great – who is lying in the manger. He is using you, all unaware of it, to work out his own purposes freeing souls from captivity to the devil. He has taken up the sons of the enemy into the ranks of God’s adopted children.
The children die for Christ, though they do not know it. The parents mourn for the death of martyrs. The child makes of those as yet unable to speak fit witnesses to himself. See the kind of kingdom that is his, coming as he did in order to be this kind of king. See how the deliverer is already working deliverance, the savior already working salvation.
But you, Herod, do not know this and are disturbed and furious. While you vent your fury against the child, you are already paying him homage, and do not know it.
How great a gift of grace is here! To what merits of their own do the children owe this kind of victory? They cannot speak, yet they bear witness to Christ. They cannot use their limbs to engage in battle, yet already they bear off the palm of victory.
