I spent several hours tonight significantly revising and expanding the thing. If nothing else, pray over the following image, which I’m tempted to get tattooed on my shoulder blades.-Elliot Bougis
18.AFTER MASS REVIEW YOUR CATECHISM
I believe that nevertheless all those outside the Church though no fault of their own will be saved if they follow their conscience and do not die in mortal sin - and will have received the baptism of water and Catholic Faith.
I believe that those who labour under ignorance of the true religion, if this ignorance be invincible are not before God burdened by guilt of this thing- and if they are saved God will send a preacher to them who will instruct them and baptise them, as St. Thomas Aquinas taught.
I believe that this is what I mean when I say outside the Church there is no salvation - it is, that every one needs to be formal members of the Catholic Church with 'faith and baptism'(AG 7) and being saved in invincible ignorance is not an exception to the dogma, since we do not know of any explicit case in 2015.There cannot be any exceptions for us.
