"An Enormous Sin" To Deny Outside The Catholic Church There Is No Salvation
St. John Eudes, Man's Contract With God In Baptism, 17th century: "... that you may have a true faith in those things which God has revealed, it is necessary that you should believe in the Catholic Church, in which alone you can learn with certainty what God has revealed... Certainly those who do not believe in the Catholic Church cannot have divine faith in the mysteries which they believe, but only natural and human faith... 'Without faith it is impossible to please God.'... When, therefore, you observe that those who believe not in the Church, practice some good works, offer many prayers, and lead an austere life, do not believe that they are on this account on the way of salvation, unless they have the true faith; you commit an enormous sin if you believe that they can be saved outside of the Church; that they can have faith without believing in her, or that they can be saved without the faith."
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, ex cathedra, 1441: "The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives... and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church."
Pope Paul III, Bull Sublimis Deus, May 29, 1537: "... man, according to the testimony of the sacred scriptures, has been created to enjoy eternal life and happiness, which none may obtain save through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ…
‘Go ye and teach all nations’ He said all, without exception, for all are capable of receiving the doctrines of the faith… By virtue of Our apostolic authority We define and declare by these present letters… that the said Indians and other peoples should be converted to the faith of Jesus Christ by preaching the word of God and by the example of good and holy living.”
Pope Pius VIII, Traditi humilitati, #4, May 24, 1829: "Against these experienced sophists the people must be taught that the profession of the Catholic faith is uniquely true, as the apostle proclaims: one Lord, one faith, one baptism. Jerome used to say it this way: he who eats the Lamb outside this house will perish as did those during the flood who were not with Noah in the ark. Indeed, no other name than the name of Jesus is given to men, by which they may be saved. He who believes shall be saved; he who does not believe shall be condemned."
St. John Eudes, Man's Contract With God In Baptism, 17th century: "What were you before Baptism but the unhappy slave of Satan, and subject like him to eternal punishment? But by Baptism you have been delivered from this unhappy subjection... which procures for yo uthe enjoyment of eternal happiness, if you observe all its conditions. Yes, dear reader, before your Batism you were a member of Satan, and now you are a member of Jesus Christ; you were the child of the Devil, and now you are the child of God.
When you had been presented to the Church to receive Baptism, you were treated as a person in the possession of the Devil, for the priest pronounced over you the exorcism of the Church, commanding the wicked spirit to depart from you, and to give place to the Holy Ghost.
... Baptism imprints on your soul a spiritual character... This character is a proof that from this time you do not belong to yourself, but that you are the property of Jesus Christ, who has purchased you by the infinite price of His blood and of His death.
... Baptism enables you to enter the society of Jesus Christ, and of all the faithful who compose the house or family of God... By this ceremony you are likewise taught that, in order to be united to Jesus Christ, and to have eternall life, it is necessary to be a member of the Church, and to persevere therein to the end, believing all that she teaches, obeying all that she commands."
