In this weeks episode, we respond to a question we received from a listener – Is there Salvation outside of the Church? Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus. This is a big question and one that often requires a nuanced answer, so we have done our best to explore this question as such.
“No man can find salvation except in the Catholic Church. Outside the Catholic Church one can have everything except salvation. One can have honour, one can have the sacraments, one can sing alleluia, one can answer amen, one can have faith in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and preach it too, but never can one find salvation except in the Catholic Church.”
Saint Augustine (died A.D. 430), Sermo ad Caesariensis Ecclesia plebem
