God's Catholic Dogma
It is 100% certain you're headed for Hell  ...   for rejecting the Catholic Dogma  ...   Warning: There are no bishops or priests in these times
<< On this site ... you will discover how you are being sent into Hell forever ...  your willingness to be deceived is making you eternally culpable >>
 
1.   The Original Sin of Adam closed Heaven for all men (sanctifying grace was lost) ... Hell became the only possible destination for the immortal souls of men.
2.   God re-opened Heaven by founding the Catholic Church and re-introducing sanctifying grace to men's souls ... the same grace which Adam and Eve had lost.

                          We are currently in the Great Apostasy (world-wide rejection of God's Catholic Dogma), these warnings apply:
3.   Warning 1:  A non-Catholic anti-Christ cult (the vatican-2 heretic cult) took over all Catholic properties on 8 Dec 1965 ("v-2 council" close date).     [Section 12, 13]
4.   Warning 2:  No one Ordained those that you think are Priests ... all Bishops of the "v-2 council" were automatically excommunicated on 8 Dec 1965.  [Section 13.2]
5.   Warning 3:  Your fake "priests" turned you into heretics ... the stage shows are not Mass ... participation in the vatican-2 heresy excommunicates. [Section 13.2.2]
6.   Warning 4:  All those dressed up like Catholic bishops and priests are ... automatically excommunicated heretics against the Catholic Dogmas.          [Section 13.6]
                          Vatican-2-ists: You are excommunicated from the Catholic Church … Abjuration of heresy > Section 19.1

7.    One can still be Catholic and get to Heaven with a proper baptism in water [Section 7] ... believing the Dogmas ... and keeping free from mortal sin.  [Section 10.1]
8.    All grace, both actual and sanctifying grace, starts with God and comes into the world through the Blessed Virgin ... as Jesus Christ Himself did.       [Section 4, 4.4]
9a.  The Old Testament Israelite religion was the Catholic Faith unfulfilled ... the "judaism" fable started about 200 B.C.  Jesus Christ was not a jew. [Section 39.1, 39.4]
9b.  The "koran" is wrong ... Mohammed was not a prophet ... "allah" does not exist.  Mohammed and "islam" contradict 4,000 years of previous prophets. [Section 113]
10.  All heretics are excommunicated from Christianity ... and are headed for Hell ... with the world's pagans (those not properly baptized in water).       [Section 7.2, 8]

Catholic Apostles in Scripture ... Verifying the Dogma:
There is No Salvation Outside of the Catholic Church

~     ~     ~

Catholic writing of Titus 3:10-11 >
"A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid: Knowing that he ... is subverted and sinneth, being condemned by his own judgment."

Note 1: Catholic St. Paul sees the heresies starting in the 1st Century. He writes to Catholic St. Titus under the inspiration of God the Holy Ghost, that heretics will be thrown into Hell.

Note 2: St. Ignatius saw the same thing as St. Paul (the starting of heresies) which is why, in the year 107 A.D., St. Ignatius started to use the word "Catholic" to identify the True Chruch founded by God.



Catholic writing of Saint James 2:10 >
"And whosoever shall keep the whole law, but offend in one point, is become guilty of all."

Note: The heretic who rejects even a single point of Dogma ... even if he observes all other points ... will not be saved.



Catholic writing of Saint Jude 1:11-13 >
11:  "Woe unto them, for they have gone in the way of Cain."
12:  "These are ... without fear, feeding themselves, clouds without water, which are carried about by winds, trees of the autumn, unfruitful, twice dead, plucked up by the roots."
13:  "Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own confusion; wandering stars, to whom the storm of darkness is reserved forever."



Catholic writing of 2 Saint Peter 2:1 >
"There shall be among you lying teachers who shall bring in sects of perdition and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction."

Note: The words "sects of perdition" ... means ... sects that send you into Hell.



Catholic writing in Acts of the Apostles 13:46 >
"Then Paul and Barnabas said boldly: To you it behoved us first to speak the word of God: but because you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life."

Note 1: Apostate (truth rejecting) jews (they were not Israelites) ... headed for Hell for not converting.

Note 2: The religion of the Old Testament Israelites (they were not jews) was the Catholic Faith unfulfilled ... it wasn't "judaism" ... proven on Section 39.4 of this site.



Catholic writing of Saint Matthew 18:17 >
"And if he will not hear them: tell the Church. And if he will not hear the Church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican."

Note 1: The Catholic Church has no physical properties, priests, or bishops in these times ... see Sections 12 and 13 of this site.

Note 2: One is in the Catholic Church if he ... (1) Is baptized in water, (2) Believes the Catholic Dogma whole and inviolate, and (3) Is not physically participating in a heretic cult (such as the anti-Christ vatican-2 heresy, founded in 1965).



Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Canticles 4:12 >
"My sister, my spouse, is a garden enclosed, a garden enclosed, a fountain sealed up."

Note 1: The Kingdom of God, the Catholic Church is "a fountain sealed up" in that there is no sanctifying grace (grace that brings the soul to a state of justification) that gets souls to Heaven outside of the Catholic Church. There are actual graces outside the Church that prompt people to become Catholic so that they can get to the justified state.

Note 2:Actual grace does not get you to Heaven. If you do some charity work (by the power of actual grace) outside of the Catholic Church this charity is not merit for your soul at that time. If at some point in the future you enter into the Catholic Church those works of charity done while you're a heretic then provide merit for your soul.



Catholic writing of Saint Luke 10:16 >
"He that heareth you, heareth Me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth Me; and he that despiseth Me, despiseth Him that sent Me."

Note 1: The Catholic Church has no physical properties, priests, or bishops in these times ... see Sections 12 and 13 of this site.

Note 2: Christ sent Saint Peter and the other Catholic Apostles and their successors. Hearing Christ is hearing the formal definitions of those sent by Christ ... these definitions of Faith are the Sources of Dogma of the Catholic Church, the De Fide list of which is on Section 3 of this site.



Catholic writing of Saint Mark 16:16 >
"But he that believeth not shall be condemned."

Note: The word "believeth" in this scripture means believe everything the Catholic Jesus Christ teaches through His Church which is the Dogma listed on Section 3 of this website. The false "Christs" of the heretics the "lutheran Christ", "baptist Christ", "methodist Christ", "pentecostal Christ", "vatican-2 Christ", etc. are man-made fables and do not even exist ... so they cannot be God.



Catholic writing of Saint Luke 11:23 >
"He that is not with me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth."

Note 1: The Catholic Church has no physical properties, priests, or bishops in these times ... see Sections 12 and 13 of this site.

Note 2: Christ sent Saint Peter and the other Catholic Apostles and their successors. Hearing Christ is hearing the formal definitions of those sent by Christ ... these definitions of Faith are the Sources of Dogma of the Catholic Church, the De Fide list of which is on Section 3 of this site.



Catholic writing of Saint Matthew 16:18 >
"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my Church (singular), and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it."

Note 1: On 8 December 1965 (the close date of the "vatican-2 council") the Catholic Church lost all of its property around the world to the anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult. The Catholic Church cannot be damaged or destroyed it can only increase and decrease in numbers depending on how many people are baptized in water and beleive the Dogmas whole and inviolate (and who are not physically participating in a heretic cult, such as vatican-2). See Sections 12 and 13 of this site, which prove that the Catholic Church has lost its properties.

Note 2: God (the Catholic Jesus Christ) states that He will build His Church on the Catholic St. Peter and that it (the Church) will be uninterrupted until the end of the world.
Question for heretics: Why do you say the opposite, that the Church is interrupted and that you need to start new man-made, fabricated fables, that you call "religions" ?




Catholic writing of Saint Matthew 28:20 >
"Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."

Note: Again God (the Catholic Jesus Christ) states that the Catholic Church He founds will be here "to the consummation", to the end of the world, continuous and uninterrupted. So why do the heretics say the opposite (that the Church Christ founded is ended and interrupted)?   Heretics: Why are you calling Jesus Christ a liar?



Catholic writing of 1 Saint John 2:19 >
"They went out from us, but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt have remained with us."

Note: You cannot be both inside and outside that which is one (Saint Cyprian). The Catholic Church, God founded, is one.



Catholic writing of Saint John 10:16 >
"And other sheep I have that are not of this fold: them also I must bring. And they shall hear my voice: And there shall be one fold and one shepherd."

Note: "Those also I must bring" ... to be saved they must be brought into the Catholic Church.



Catholic writing in Acts of the Apostles 2:47 >
"And the Lord increased daily together such as should be saved."

Note: Those who are to be saved are added together (in the one Church of God, the Catholic Church).



Catholic writing of Saint John 15:6 >
"If any one abide not in Me, he shall be cast forth as a branch and shall wither: and they shall gather him up and cast him into the fire: and he burneth."

Note: Those cut off from the True Vine (Christ and His Catholic Church) will be thrown into Hell. The Catholic Church has no buildings at this time, they have been lost to the anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult in 1965 at the close of the "vatican-2 council". See Sections 12 (and sub-sections) and 13 (and sub-sections) of this site.



Catholic writing of 2 Saint John 1:9 >
"Whosoever revolts, and continues not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God."

Note: Doctrine matters to God. The doctrine spoke of here are the defined Dogmas of the Catholic Church. The De Fide (of the Faith) summary list of the Dogma is on Section 3 of this site.



Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Psalm 5:7 >
"Thou art a God Who hatest all the workers of iniquity: Thou wilt destroy all who speak a lie."

Note: God will throw heretics (all of whom are lying against God's Catholic Truth) into Hell.



Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Psalm 18:8 >
"The law of the Lord is unspotted, converting souls.""

Note 1: The law of the Lord is the Catholic Sources of Dogma. The De Fide (of the Faith) summary list of the Dogma is on Section 3 of this site.

Note 2: As an adult, when one believes the Catholic Dogma and is baptized in water he is at that point converted. For one baptized as an infant, he must remain in the Catholic Church by believing the Dogma after reaching the age of reason.



Catholic writing of Apocalyse 22:15 >   ("revelation" in the false heretic "bibles")
"Outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and the unchaste, and murderers, and servers of idols, and every one who loves and makes a lie."

Note: This scripture depicts the states of all souls who are outside the Catholic Church. As a minimum all are servers of idols, in sin against the 1st Commandment because they are not worshiping the Catholic Jesus Christ. In these times when the Catholic Church has no buildings, you are still in the Catholic Church if you are baptized in water and believe the Catholic Dogmas.



Catholic writing of Saint John 17:21 >
"That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us."

Note: There is one Church, heretics are not in "churches" they are in meeting halls, set up by the devil, against God's Catholic Church. The Catholic Church has no physical buildings at this time.



Catholic writing of Saint John 3:16 >
"God so loved the world as to give his Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting."

Note: The word "believeth" in this scripture means believe everything the Catholic Jesus Christ teaches in the Catholic Dogmas. The false "Christs" such as the "lutheran Christ", "baptist Christ", "methodist Christ", "vatican-2 Christ", "pentecostal Christ", etc. do not even exist.



Catholic writing of Saint John 3:36 >
"He that believeth not the Son, shall not see light; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

Note: If you don't believe what the True and Catholic Jesus Christ teaches (the Catholic Dogmas), then you in fact do not believe and the wrath of God is upon your immortal soul. See Section 45 of this website which discusses curses on souls.



Catholic writing of Ephesians 4:5 >
"One Lord, one Faith, one baptism."

Note 1: God states there is One Faith (not 25,000). God, the Truth, cannot contradict Himself. The Holy Spirit is with the Catholic Church and so cannot be with heretic groups since He cannot deny Himself. The Catholic Church lost its buildings in 1965 to the anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult but the Dogma is always protected by God and is unchangeable.

Note 2: The Faith spoken of in this Scripture is the Catholic Sources of Dogma. The De Fide (of the Faith) summary list of the Dogma is on Section 3 of this site.



Catholic writing of Hebrews 11:6 >
"But without faith it is impossible to please God."

Note: The Faith spoken of in this Scripture is the Catholic Sources of Dogma. The De Fide (of the Faith) summary list of the Dogma is on Section 3 of this site.



Catholic writing in Acts of the Apostles 13:48 >
"And as many as were ordained to life everlasting believed."

Note: Believed what? The true and Catholic Faith which comes to us from Heaven ... otherwise you're damned, forever.

Popes ... Verifying the Dogma:
There is No Salvation Outside of the Catholic Church

~     ~     ~

Pope Palagius II, 578-590 A.D. >
"Consider the fact that whoever has not been in the peace and unity of the Church cannot have the Lord..... Although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or, thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be for them that crown of faith but the punishment of faithlessness... such a one can be slain, he cannot be crowned... if slain outside the Church, he cannot attain the rewards of the Church."



Pope Saint Gregory the Great, 590-604 A.D. >
"Now the Holy Church proclaims that God cannot be truly worshipped saving within herself, asserting that all they that are without her shall never be saved." (Moralia)



Pope Sylvester II, 991 A.D. >
"I profess that outside the Catholic Church no one is saved." (Profession of faith made as Archbishop of Reims)



Pope Innocent III, 1198-1216 A.D., Fourth Lateran Council 1215 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"There is but one universal Church of the faithful, outside of which no one at all is saved."

Pope Innocent III, Fitts exemplo, to the Archbishop of Terraco, 18 December 1208 >
"By the heart we believe and by the mouth we confess the one Church, not of heretics but the Holy Roman, Catholic, and Apostolic (Church) outside which we believe that no one is saved."

Pope Innocent III, Fourth Lateran Council, Canon 3 on Heresy, 1215 A.D. -- Ex-Cathdra Dogma >
"Those who are only found suspect of heresy are to be struck with the sword of anathema, unless they prove their innocence by an appropriate purgation, having regard to the reasons for suspicion and the character of the person. Let such persons be avoided by all until they have made adequate satisfaction."



Pope Boniface VIII, 1302 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"There is only one Catholic Church; this we firmly believe and profess without qualification. Outside this Church there is no salvation nor remission of sin. For at the time of the Deluge there existed only one Ark, the figure of the one Church. And all things outside this Ark perished." (Unam Sanctum) & (Denzinger 468)



Pope Eugene IV, 1441 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"The most Holy Roman Church believes, professes, and proclaims that those not living within the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also jews and heretics and schismatic's cannot become participants in eternal life, but will depart " into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matt. 25:21), unless before the end of life the same has been added to the flock; and that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is so strong that only to those remaining in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fasting's, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of Christian service produce eternal reward, and that no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed his blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church." (Cantata Domino) Council of Florence



Pope Leo XII, 1823-1829 A.D. >
"We profess that there is no salvation outside the Church ... for the Church is the pillar and ground of the faith. With reference to those words Saint Augustine says: " If any be outside the Church he will be excluded from the number of sons, and will not have God for a Father since he has not the Church for a mother."



Pope Gregory XVI, 1831-1846 A.D. >
"It is not possible to worship God truly except in Her; all who are outside Her will not be saved." (Encyclical, Summo Jugiter)



Vatican Council of 1870, Pope Pius IX, Session 2, Profession of Faith -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"This true Catholic Faith, outside of which none can be saved, which I now freely profess and truly hold, is what I shall steadfastly maintain and confess, by the help of God, in all its completeness and purity until my dying breath, and I shall do my best to ensure that all others do the same. This is what I, the same Pius, promise, vow and swear."



Pope Pius IX, Quanto Conficiamur Moerore, On Promotion of False Doctrines, Paragraph 13, 10 Aug 1863 >
"Admonish and exhort them to be strong in our sacred faith, without which it is impossible to please God. Urge them to persevere firmly established in our divine religion, which alone is true and eternal and prepares for salvation."



Pope Pius IX, Nostis et Nobiscum, Paragraph 10, 8 Dec 1849 >
"In particular, ensure that the faithful are deeply and thoroughly convinced of the truth of the doctrine that the Catholic faith is necessary for attaining salvation. The Catholic laity and clergy should repeatedly offer special thanks to God in public prayers for the priceless gift of the Catholic religion. They should also beseech God to protect the profession of this faith in our country and to keep it unharmed."



Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, On Faith and Religion, Paragraph 20, 9 Nov 1846 >
"Never cease to instruct all men in it ... never tolerating and letting pass anything which could in the slightest degree defile the purity of this faith. With the same great strength of mind, foster in all men their unity with the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation."



Pope Pius IX, Ubi primum, Paragraph 10, 17 Jun 1847 >
"For there is one universal Church outside of which no one at all is saved; it contains regular and secular prelates along with those under their jurisdiction, who all profess one Lord, one faith and one baptism."



Pope Pius IX, Singulari Quidam, Paragraph 4, 17 Mar 1856 >
"There is only one Divine faith which is the beginning of salvation for mankind and the basis of all justification, the faith by which the just person lives and without which it is impossible to please God and to come to the community of His children."



Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, On Faith and Religion, Paragraph 3, 19 Nov 1846 >
"In your compassionate mercy you seek out and overtake with your love the straying and perishing sheep ... You place them paternally on your shoulders ant lead them back to the fold ... from the rage, assault and snares of ravening wolves. You keep them away from poisonous pasture land and drive them on to safe ground, and in all possible ways you lead them by deed, word and example to the harbor of eternal salvation."



Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, On Faith and Religion, Paragraph 15, 9 Nov 1846 >
Also perverse is the shocking theory that it makes no difference to which religion one belongs, a theory which is greatly at variance even with reason. By means of this theory, those crafty men remove all distinction between virtue and vice, truth and error, honorable and vile action. They pretend that men can gain eternal salvation by the practice of any religion, as if there could ever be any sharing between justice and iniquity, any collaboration between light and darkness, or any agreement between Christ and Belial."



Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, On Faith and Religion, Paragraph 19, 9 Nov 1846 >
"You must also care for and defend the Catholic faith with episcopal strength and see that the flock entrusted to you stands to the end firm and unmoved in the faith. For unless one preserves the Faith entire and uninjured, he will without doubt perish forever."



Pope Pius IX, 1846-1878 A.D. >
"It must be held by faith that outside the Apostolic Roman Church, no one can be saved; that this is the only Ark of salvation; that he who shall not enter therein will perish in the flood." Note: This quote by Pius IX implies a physical recognition of the Church, but since in 1965 the Catholic Church has had its buildings taken over by the anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult (see Sections 12 and 13). Those who are in the Catholic Church are those who are properly baptized in water (see Section 7) and believe all of the Dogma of the Faith (see Section 3).



Pope Leo XIII, 1878-1903 A.D. >
"This is our last lesson to you; receive it, engrave it in your minds, all of you: by God's commandment salvation is to be found nowhere but in the Church." (Encyclical "Annum Ingressi Sumus)



Pope Pius X, 1903-1914 A.D. >
"It is our duty to recall to everyone great and small, as the Roman Pontiff Gregory did in ages past, the absolute necessity which is ours, to have recourse to this Church to effect our eternal salvation." (Encyclical Jucunda Sane)



S u b - p a r t    C

Saints and others ... Verifying the Dogma:
There is No Salvation Outside of the Catholic Church

~     ~     ~

Pope St. Clement I, 88-97 A.D. >
"Heretical teachers pervert Scripture and try to get into Heaven with a false key, for they have formed their human assemblies later than the Catholic Church. From this previously-existing and most true Church, it is very clear that these later heresies, and others which have come into being since then, are counterfeit and novel inventions." (Epistle to the Corinthians)

Note 1: Heretics are not in "churches" they are in meeting halls. The Catholic Church is without buildings at this time, they were lost to the anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult in 1965.

Note 2: The heresies started in the 1st century. Heresy is a sin against the First Commandment and sends the unrepentant heretic into Hell.



Saint Ignatius of Antioch, a disciple of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, died 107 A.D. >
"For as many as are of God and of Jesus Christ are also with the Bishop. And as many as shall, in the exercise of repentance, return into the unity of the Church, these, too, shall belong to God, that they may live according to Jesus Christ. Do not err, my brethren. If any man follows him that makes a schism in the Church, he shall not inherit the kingdom of God. If any one walks according to a strange opinion, he agrees not with the passion of Christ." (Epistle to the Philadelphians)

Note: There are no Catholic bishops in these times, the anti-Christ vatican-2 heretic cult took over our formerly Catholic properties and formerly Catholic hierarchy on 8 December 1965 (the close date of the "vatican-2 council").



Saint Irenaeus, died 202 A.D. >
"[The Church] is the entrance to life; all others are thieves and robbers. On this account we are bound to avoid them... We hear it declared of the unbelieving and the blinded of this world that they shall not inherit the world of life which is to come... Resist them in defense of the only true and life giving faith, which the Church has received from the Apostles and imparted to her sons." (Against Heresies, Book III)



Saint Cyprian, died 258 A.D. >
"He who has turned his back on the Church of Christ shall not come to the rewards of Christ; he is an alien, a worldling, an enemy. You cannot have God for your Father if you have not the Church for your mother. Our Lord warns us when He says: 'he that is not with Me is against Me, and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth.' Whosoever breaks the peace and harmony of Christ acts against Christ; whoever gathers elsewhere than in the Church scatters the Church of Christ." (Unity of the Catholic Church)



Patrologiae Cursus Completus: Latina, extract, published by Father Migne >
"He who does not hold this unity, does not hold the law of God, does not hold the faith of the Father and the Son, does not hold life and salvation."

Note: The unity is of the Catholic Faith ... being baptized in water and believing the Catholic Dogma and Sources of Dogma. The anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult which took over our Catholic properties in 1965 at the close of the "vatican-2 council" do not hold to the unity of the Faith. See the vatican-2 cult heresies in Section 12 of this site.



Bishop Firmilean, died 269 A.D. >
"What is the greatness of his error, and what the depth of his blindness, who says that remission of sins can be granted in the synagogues of heretics, and does not abide on the foundation of the one Church." (Anti-Nicene Fathers)



Lactantius, died 310 A.D. >
"It is the Catholic Church alone which retains true worship. This is the fountain of truth, this is the abode of the Faith, this is the temple of God; into which if anyone shall not enter, or from which if anyone shall go out, he is a stranger to the hope of life and eternal salvation." (The Divine Institutes)



Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, died 386 A.D. >
"Abhor all heretics...heed not their fair speaking or their mock humility; for they are serpents, a 'brood of vipers'. Remember that, when Judas said 'Hail Rabbi', the salutation was an act of betrayal. Do not be deceived by the kiss but beware of the venom. Abhor such men, therefore, and shun the blasphemers of the Holy Spirit, for whom there is no pardon. For what fellowship have you with men without hope. Let us confidently say to God regarding all heretics, 'Did I not hate, O Lord, those who hated Thee, and did I not pine away because of Your enemies?' For there is an enmity that is laudable, as it is written, 'I will put enmity between you and the woman, between your seed and her seed.' Friendship with the serpent produces enmity with God, and death. Let us shun those from whom God turns away." (The Fathers of the Church)



Saint John Chrysostom, Doctor of the Church, died 407 A.D. >
"We know that salvation belongs to the Church alone, and that no one can partake of Christ nor be saved outside the Catholic Church and the Catholic Faith." (De Capto Eutropia)



Saint Jerome, died 420 A.D. >
"As I follow no leader save Christ, so I communicate with none but your blessedness, that is, with the Chair of Peter. For this, I know, is the rock on which the Church is built. ... This is the ark of Noah, and he who is not found in it shall perish when the flood prevails. ... And as for heretics, I have never spared them; on the contrary, I have seen to it in every possible way that the Church's enemies are also my enemies." (Manual of Patrology and History of Theology)



Saint Augustine, died 430 A.D. >
"No man can find salvation except in the Catholic Church. Outside the Catholic Church one can have everything except salvation. One can have honor, one can have the sacraments, one can sing alleluia, one can answer amen ... but never can one find salvation except in the Catholic Church." (Sermo ad Caesariensis Ecclesia plebem)



Saint Fulgentius, died 533 A.D. >
"Most firmly hold and never doubt that not only pagans, but also all jews, all heretics, and all schismatics who finish this life outside of the Catholic Church, will go into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels." (Enchiridion Patristicum)



St. Bede the Venerable, died 735 A.D. >
"Just as all within the ark were saved and all outside of it were carried away when the flood came, so when all who are pre-ordained to eternal life have entered the Church, the end of the world will come and all will perish who are found outside." (Hexaemeron)



Saint Thomas Aquinas, died 1274 A.D. >
"There is no entering into salvation outside the Church, just as in the time of the deluge there was none outside the ark, which denotes the Church." (Summa Theologiae)



Blessed Peter Canisius, died 1597 A.D. >
"Outside of this communion - as outside of the ark of Noah - there is absolutely no salvation for mortals: not for jews or pagans who never received the faith of the Church, nor for heretics who, having received it, corrupted it; neither for the excommunicated or those who for any other serious cause deserve to be put away and separated from the body of the Church like pernicious members...for the rule of Cyprian and Augustine is certain: he will not have God for his Father who would not have the Church for his mother." (Catechismi Latini et Germanici)



Venerable Robert Bellarmine, died, 1621 A.D. >
"Outside the Church there is no salvation...'I believe in the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins'...For this reason the Church is compared with the ark of Noah, because just as during the deluge, everyone perished who was not in the ark, so now those perish who are not in the Church." (De Sacramento Baptismi)



John Marie Vianny, died 1859 A.D. >
"My children, why are there no Sacraments in other religions? Because there is no salvation there! We have the Sacraments at our disposal because we belong to the religion of salvation."

Note: The only Sacrament available in these times is Water Baptism. Do not set foot into a vatican-2 cult meeting hall for baptism ... see Section 7 for the reasons for this, perform the baptisms yourself (instructions also on Section 7).

Chronological Listing, starting in the 1st Century, of Catholic Decrees and Teaching
that you must be Catholic to get to Heaven

~     ~     ~

Note on the below quotes ... which refer to the Office of the Papacy >

1.  Some of these quotes reference the Papacy, in that they say that those who are with and subordinate to the Pope are in the Catholic Church. There is a deception regarding these quotes in our time because the Papacy was lost to the jews and heretics in 1914.

2.  Some of the heresies of anti-Popes "Benedict XV", "Pius XI", and "Pius XII" are listed in Sections 20, 20.1, and 20.2 -- these three set up the anti-Christ vatican-2 cult apostasy which was founded on 8 December 1965 (the close date of the "vatican-2 council".

3.  Following the council, those who were the leaders of the anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult, "Paul VI", "John Paul I", "John Paul II", "Benedict XVI", and "Francis" cannot be called anti-Popes because an anti-Pope is a false claimant to the leadership of the Catholic Church. The anti-Christ vatican-2 cult is a non-Catholic heretical society from the Vatican on down so that "Paul VI", "John Paul I", "John Paul II", and "Benedict XVI" were/are not "anti-Popes" they were/are simply heretic group leaders of a heretical society.

4.  For the quotes below which reference the Papacy ... being with the Papacy in times like these (and all other times) means believing the formal teachings of the Popes -- these formal teachings are summarized in the De Fide Dogma list on Section 3 and the Sources of Dogma throughout this website.

Catholic St. Luke, 50 A.D. >
"And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord increased daily together such as should be saved." (Acts 2:46-7)



Catholic St. Luke, 50 A.D. >
"Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, "It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you (jews) but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, "I hath set thee to be a light to the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed." (Acts 13:46-8)



Pope St. Clement I, 88-97 A.D. >
"Heretical teachers pervert Scripture and try to get into Heaven with a false key, for they have formed their human assemblies later than the Catholic Church. From this previously-existing and most true Church, it is very clear that these later heresies, and others which have come into being since then, are counterfeit and novel inventions." (Epistle to the Corinthians)



Saint Ignatius of Antioch, a disciple of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, died 107 A.D. >
"Let no man deceive himself. Unless he believes that Christ Jesus has lived in the flesh, and shall confess His cross and passion, and the blood which He shed for the salvation of the world, he shall not attain eternal life, whether he be a king, or a priest, or a ruler, or a private person, a master or a servant, a man or a woman." (Epistle to the Smyrnaeans)

Note for heretics: The only Jesus Christ that exists is the Catholic One, your heretic "Christs" don't exist.



Saint Ignatius of Antioch, a disciple of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, Epistle to the Philadelphians, died 107 A.D. >
"For as many as are of God and of Jesus Christ are also with the Bishop. And as many as shall, in the exercise of repentance, return into the unity of the Church, these, too, shall belong to God, that they may live according to Jesus Christ. Do not err, my brethren. If any man follows him that makes a schism in the Church, he shall not inherit the kingdom of God. If any one walks according to a strange opinion, he agrees not with the passion of Christ."



Saint Justin Martyr, died 165 A.D. >
"And you deceive yourselves while you fancy that, because you are the seed of Abraham after the flesh, therefore you shall fully inherit the good things announced to be bestowed by God through Christ. For no one, not even one of them, has anything to look for, but only those who in mind are assimilated to the faith of Abraham, and who have recognised all the mysteries. (...) So that it becomes you to eradicate this hope from your souls, and hasten to know in what way forgiveness of sins, and a hope of inheriting the promised good things, shall be yours. But there is no other way than this, - to become acquainted with this Christ, to be washed in the fountain spoken of by Isaiah for the remission of sins, and for the rest to live sinless lives." (...)



Saint Justin Martyr, died 165 A.D. >
"Further, I hold that those of the seed of Abraham who live according to the law, and do not believe in this Christ before death, shall not be saved."



Saint Martial of Limoges, died A.D. 165 A.D. >
"All who do not confess Christ to be true God shall go into eternal fire."

Note: The real (and only) Jesus Christ is the Catholic one.



Saint Theophilus of Antioch, died A.D. 181 A.D. >
"And as, again, there are other islands, rocky and without water, and barren, and infested by wild beasts, and uninhabitable, and serving only to injure navigators and the storm-tossed, on which ships are wrecked, and those driven among them perish, - so there are doctrines of error - I mean heresies - which destroy those who approach them. For they are not guided by the word of truth; but as pirates, when they have filled their vessels, drive them on the fore-mentioned places, that they may spoil them: so also it happens in the case of those who err from the truth, that they are all totally ruined by their error." (To Autolyctus)



Saint Irenaeus, "Against the Heresies", died 202 A.D. >
"Since therefore we have such proofs, it is not necessary to seek the truth among others (heretics) which it is easy to obtain from the Church; since the apostles, like a rich man (depositing his money in a bank,) lodged in her hands most copiously all things pertaining to the truth: so that every man, whosoever will, can draw from her the water of life. For she is the entrance to life; all others are thiefs and robbers. On this account we are bound to avoid them, but to make choice of the things pertaining to the Church with the utmost diligence, and to lay hold of the tradition of the truth." (...)

"Wherefore it is incumbent to obey the presbyters who are in the Church, those who, as I have shown, possess the succession from the apostles; those who, together with the succession of the episcopate, have received the certain gift of truth, according to the good pleasure of the Father. But (it is also incumbent) to hold in suspicion others who depart from the primitive succession, and assemble themselves together in any place whatsoever, (looking upon them) either as heretics of perverse minds, or as schismatics puffed up and self-pleasing, or again as hypocrites, acting thus for the sake of lucre and vainglory. For all these have fallen away from the truth."

"And the heretics, indeed, who bring strange fire to the alter of God - namely, strange doctrines, - shall be burned up by the fire from heaven, as were Nadab and Abiud. But such as rise up in opposition to the truth, and exhort others against the Church of God, (shall) remain among those in hell, being swallowed up by an earthquake, even as those who were with Chore, Dathan, and, Abiron. But those who cleave asunder, and separate the unity of the Church, (shall) receive from God the same punishment as Jeroboam did."



Saint Pionius, died 250 A.D. >
"I am a Christian and belong to the Catholic Church. Would to God I could persuade all of you to become Christians, for it will be the worse for you to burn eternally after death."

Note: Only Catholics are Christians.



Saint Cyprian, died 258 A.D. >
"But if any one considers these things carefully, he will need no long discourse or arguments. The proof is simple and convincing, being summed up in a matter of fact. The Lord says to Peter, "I say to thee, that thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of Hell shall not overcome it. I will give to thee the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. And what thou shalt bind upon earth shall be bound also in Heaven, and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed also in Heaven." And He says to him again after the resurrection, "Feed my sheep." It is on him that He builds the Church, and to him that He entrusts the sheep to feed. (...) If a man does not hold fast to this oneness of Peter, does he imagine that he still holds the faith? If he deserts the Chair of Peter upon whom the Church was built, has he still confidence that he is in the Church?" (On the Unity of the Catholic Church)



Saint Cyprian, died 258 A.D. >
"For whereas in the Gospels, and in the epistles of the Apostles, the name of Christ is alleged for the remission of sins; it is not in such a way as that the Son alone, without the Father, or against the Father, can be of advantage to anybody; but that it might be shown to the jews, who boasted as to their having the Father, that the Father would profit them nothing, unless they believed on the Son whom He had sent. For they who know God the Father the Creator, ought also to know Christ the Son, lest they flatter and applaud themselves about the Father alone, without the acknowledgement of His Son, who also said, "No man cometh to the Father but by me." But He, the same, sets forth that it is the knowledge of the two that saves, when he says, "And this is life eternal, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent." Therefore, from the preaching and the testimony of Christ Himself, the Father who sent must be known first, then afterwards Christ, who was sent, and there cannot be a hope of salvation except by knowing the two together."



Saint Firmilian, "Epistle to Cyprian", died 269 A.D. >
"What is the greatness of his error, and what the depth of his blindness, who says that remission of sins can be granted in the synagogues of heretics, and does not abide on the foundation of the one Church."



Lactantius, "The Divine Institutes", died 310 A.D. >
"It is the Catholic Church alone which retains true worship. This is the fountain of truth, this is the abode of the Faith, this is the temple of God; into which if anyone shall not enter, or from which if anyone shall go out, he is a stranger to the hope of life and eternal salvation. No one ought to flatter himself with persevering strife." (The Divine Institutes)



Council of Nicea, First Ecumenical Council, 325 A.D. >
"Let the patriarch consider what things are done by the archbishops and bishops in their provinces; and if he shall find anything done by them otherwise than it should be, let him change it and order it, as seemeth to him fit; for he is the father of all, and they are his sons. And although the Archbishop be among the bishops as an elder brother, who hath the care of his brethren, and to whom they owe obedience because he is over them; yet the patriarch is to all those who are under his power, just as he who holds the seat of Rome is the head and prince of all patriarchs; inasmuch as he is first, as was Peter, to whom power is given over all Christian princes, and over all their peoples, as he who is the Vicar of Christ our Lord over all peoples and over the whole Christian Church, and whoever shall contradict this, is excommunicated by the synod."   (Arabic Canons, Canon XXXIX)



First Council of Constantinople, Canon 7, 381 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"Those who embrace orthodoxy and join the number of those who are being saved from the heretics, we receive in the following regular and customary manner ... we receive when they hand in statements and anathematise every heresy which is not of the same mind as the holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of God."

Note: Heretics are outside of the Catholic and Apostolic Church of God (which has no buildings at this time), in a heretic state they cannot be saved.



First Council of Constantinople, Canon 7, 381 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"Those who from heresy turn to orthodoxy, and to the number of those who are being saved, we receive according to the following method and custom: Arians, and Macerdocians, Quarto-decimans or Tetradites, and Appolinarians, we receive upon their giving a written renunciation of their errors and anathematize every heresy which is not in accordance with the Holy, Cathoilic and Apostolic Church of God."



Saint Ambrose, Doctor of the Church, died 397 A.D. >
"Peter is he to whom the Lord said: "You are Peter, and on this rock I will build the Church." Therefore where Peter is, there is the Church; where the Church is, there is no death but only eternal life. And therefore Christ added: "And the gates of Hell shall not prevail, and I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven."

Note: The phrase "Gates of Hell" has been formally defined by the Catholic Church as ... heresy not causing the Catholic Dogma to disappear from the world. See Section 13.3 of this site.



Saint John Chrysostom, Doctor of the Church, died 407 A.D. >
"We know that salvation belongs to the Church alone, and that no one can partake of Christ nor be saved outside the Catholic Church and the Catholic Faith."   (De Capto Eutropia)



Saint John Chrysostom, Doctor of the Church, died 407 A.D. >
"We should mourn for those who are dying without the Faith. (...) And well should the pagan weep and lament who, not knowing God, goes straight to punishment when he dies!"



Saint Gaudentius of Brescia, died 410 A.D. >
"It is certain that all men of Noah's time perished, except those in the Ark, which was a figure of the Church. Likewise, they cannot in any way now be saved who are aliens from the Apostolic Faith and the Catholic Church."   (De Lect. Evangel.)



Saint Jerome, Doctor of the Church, died 420 A.D. >
"As I follow no leader save Christ, so I communicate with none but your blessedness, that is, with the Chair of Peter. For this, I know, is the rock on which the Church is built. This is the house where alone can the Paschal Lamb be rightly eaten. This is the ark of Noah, and he who is not found in it shall perish when the flood prevails."   (Letter to Pope Damasus)



Saint Jerome, Doctor of the Church, died 420 A.D. >
"Behold we have left all things and have followed thee ... shall possess life everlasting." (Saint Matthew 19:27-29) (...) He said not: "You who have left all things;" for even the philosopher Crates did this, and many others have despised riches; but: "You who have followed me;" which applies to the Apostles and all the Faithful."   (Homily on St. Matthew)



Athanasian Creed, c. 370 A.D. >
"Whoever wishes to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith, which unless each one preserves whole and inviolate, without doubt he will perish everlastingly. (...) This is the Catholic faith, which unless each one believes faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved."



Saint Augustine, Doctor of the Church, 430 A.D. >
"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 ... but never can one find salvation except in the Catholic Church."   (Sermon to the People of Caesaria)



Saint Augustine, Doctor of the Church, 430 A.D. >
"For if, according to the word of truth, no one is delivered from the condemnation which was incurred through Adam except through faith in Jesus Christ, and yet from this condemnation they shall not deliver themselves who shall be able to say that they have not heard the gospel of Christ, on the ground that "faith cometh by hearing," how much less shall they deliver themselves who shall say, "We have not received perseverance!" (...) thou mightest persevere if thou wouldest. And, consequently, both those who have not heard the gospel, and those who, having heard it and been changed by it for the better, have not received perseverance, (...) are not made to differ from that mass which it is plain is condemned, as all go from one into condemnation."   (On Rebuke and Grace)



Saint Augustine, Doctor of the Church, 430 A.D. >
"They who are not liberated through grace, either because they are not yet able to hear, or because they are unwilling to obey; or again because they did not receive, at the time when they are unable on account of youth to hear, that bath of regeneration, which they might have received and through which they might have been saved, are indeed justly condemned; because they are not without sin, either that which they have derived from their birth, or that which they have added from their own misconduct. "For all have sinned" - whether in Adam or in themselves - "and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23.)"" (On Nature and Grace)

Note: Regarding the text ... "all have sinned" ... the obvious exceptions being the Lord and the Blessed Virgin (Please see Section 4 of this website).



Saint Augustine, Doctor of the Church, 430 A.D. >
"The comparison of the Church with Paradise shows us that men may indeed receive baptism outside her pale, but that no one outside can either receive or retain the salvation of eternal happiness. For, as the words of the Scripture testify, the streams from the fountain of Paradise flowed copiously even beyond its bounds. Record is indeed made of their names; and through what countries they flow, and that they are situated beyond the limits of Paradise, is known to all; and yet in Mesopotamia, and in Egypt, to which countries those rivers extended, there is not found that blessedness of life which is recorded in Paradise. Accordingly, although the waters of Paradise are found beyond its boundaries, yet its happiness is in Paradise alone. So, therefore, the baptism of the Church may exist outside, but the gift of the life of happiness is found alone within the Church, which has been founded on a rock, which has received the keys of binding and losing."

Note: Valid infant water baptisms in heretic cults ... bring the infants into the Catholic Church. If the person is still in a heretic cult after the age of reason (seven years old) ... it is at that point that he is automatically removed from the Catholic Church for participation in a heresy.



Saint Augustine, Doctor of the Church, 430 A.D. >
"Nor indeed, is it of heresies alone that the apostle says, "that they that do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." But it may be worth while to look for a moment at the things which he groups together. "The works of the flesh," he says, "are manifest, which are these; fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God." Let us suppose someone, therefore, chaste, continent, free from covetousness, no idolater, hospitable, charitable to the needy, no man's enemy, not contentious, patient, quiet, jealous of none, envying none, sober, frugal, but a heretic; it is of course clear to all that for this one fault only, that he is a heretic, he will fail to inherit the Kingdom of God."

Note: Heretics are idol worshipers because they worship false gods, such as, in our time, the false "lutheran Jesus", the false "methodist Jesus", etc. These false heretic "Christs" do not even exist ... thus all heretics are idolaters.



Saint Augustine, Doctor of the Church, 430 A.D. >
"Our faith - that is, the Catholic faith, - distinguishes the righteous from the unrighteous not by the law of works, but by that of Faith, because the just by Faith lives. By which distinction it results that the man who leads his life without murder, without theft, without false witness, without coveting other mens' goods, giving due honour to his parents, completely chaste, most liberal in almsgiving, most patient of injuries; who not only does not deprive another of his goods, but does not even ask again for what has been taken away from himself; or who has even sold all his own property and appointed it to the poor, and possesses nothing which belongs to him as his own; - with such a character as this, laudable as it seems to be, if he has not the true and Catholic Faith in God, must yet depart from life to condemnation."

Note: In other words there is no such thing as a "good heretic".



Saint Augustine, Doctor of the Church, 430 A.D. >
"Salvation," he says, "is not outside the Church." Who says that it is? And therefore whatever men have that belongs to the Church outside the Church, it profits them nothing toward salvation outside the Church."   (On Baptism against the Donatists.)

Note 1: Those who are baptized as infants in heretic meeting halls are in fact baptized into the Catholic Church, if the form (words), matter (water), and intention (intention to remit Original Sin) of the sacrament are correct. When they reach the age of reason (7 years) if they are still in the heretic meeting halls they are automatically excommunicated for physical participation in a heretical society ("lutheran", "vatican-2", "baptist", "methodist", "evangelical", etc.) -- they are no longer Catholic and thus are removed from Christianity.

Note 2: Of course there is no such thing as post age of reason baptism outside of the Catholic Church since one cannot be baptized into a heresy. For those past the age of reason, you must believe the Catholic Faith in the Dogma at the moment of baptism for the baptism to be valid.

Note 3: See Section 7 of this site ... for Dogma and information on Baptism.



Pope Saint Leo the Great, Doctor of the Church, 440-461 A.D. >
"But this mysterious function, the Lord indeed wishes to be the concern of all the Apostles, but in such a way that he has placed the principle charge on the Blessed Peter, chief of the Apostles: and from him as from the Head wishes His gifts to flow to all the body: so that any one who dares to secede from Peter's solid rock may understand that he has no part or lot in the divine mystery."   (Letter X)



Pope Saint Hormisdas, 514-523 A.D. >
"The first thing required for salvation is to keep the norm of correct faith and to deviate in no way from what the Fathers have established, because it is not possible to lay aside the words of our Lord Jesus Christ who said, "You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church." These words are proved true by their effects because, in the Apostolic See, the Catholic religion has always been preserved immaculate. Desiring in no way to be separated from this hope and faith and following in all things what has been established by the Fathers, we anathematize all heretics."   (Profession of faith prescribed for the Church; Inter ea quae)



Saint Fulgentius, died 533 A.D. >
"Most firmly hold and never doubt that not only all pagans, but also all jews, all heretics, and all schismatics who finish this life outside of the Catholic Church, will go into the eternal fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels."   (To Peter on the Faith)



Saint Fulgentius, died 533 A.D. >
"Whoever is outside this Church which has received the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven is not teaching the path to heaven but to hell; nor is he heading toward the house of eternal life, but he is hurrying toward the punishment of eternal death; not only if he remains a pagan without baptism but also, even if he perseveres as a heretic after baptism."   (On the Forgiveness of Sins)



Pope Pelagius II, 578-590 A.D. >
"Consider the fact that whoever has not been in the peace and unity of the Church cannot have the Lord. (...) Although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or, thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be that crown of faith but the punishment of faithlessness. (...) Such a one can be slain, he cannot be crowned. (... If) slain outside the Church, he cannot attain the rewards of the Church."   (Dilectionis Vestrae)



Pope Pelagius II, 578-590 A.D. >
"We can no more pray for a deceased infidel than we can for the devil, since they are condemned to the same eternal and irrevocable damnation."   (Dialogues, IV)



Pope Saint Gregory the Great, Doctor of the Church, 590-604 A.D. >
"Now the holy Church universal proclaims that God cannot be truly worshipped saving within herself, asserting that all they that are without her shall never be saved."   (Moralia)



Pope Saint Gregory the Great, Doctor of the Church, 590-604 A.D. >
"Consider that therefore whoever is not in the peace and unity of the Church cannot have God." (Epistle to Schismatic (former) Bishops)



Pope Saint Gregory the Great, Doctor of the Church, 590-604 A.D. >
"Since, then, by my own public profession you know the entireness of our belief, it is fitting that you have no further scruple concerning the Church of Saint Peter, Prince of the Apostles. But persist in the true Faith, and ground your life on the rock of the Church, that is, in his confession: lest your many tears and your good works avail nothing, if they be separated from the true Faith. For as branches wither without a root, so works, however good they seem, are nothing if separated from the solidity of the Faith."   (To Theodelinda, Queen of the Lombards)



John Moschus, died 619 A.D. >
"There dwelt on the sacred river Jordan a certain old man, Cyriacus by name, of great merit before God. To him came a stranger named Theophanes to ask advice concerning temptations. The old man began to encourage him with talk about temperance. Greatly edified and strengthened, he said to the old man, "Truly, my father, if it were not that in my own country I communicate with the Nestorians, I would remain with you." Now, when the aged man heard the name "Nestorians," distressed for the ruin of a brother, he began to rebuke him, and entreated him to withdraw from that most evil and baneful heresy, and to seek admission into the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, telling him at the same time that there is no other hope of salvation. "But my father and master," said the brother, "surely this is what all heretics say: that, "Unless you communicate with us, you will not be saved." Miserable that I am, I do not know what to do! Therefore beseech the Lord to make me know for certain which is the true faith." The old man was full of joy, and said to him, "Come; sit in the cave with me, and have complete hope in God, for His goodness will discover to you the true faith." Then, leaving the brother in the cave, Cyriacus went forth to the dead sea to pray to God for him."

"Now, about the ninth hour the following day, the brother beheld some one standing before him of terrible appearance, who said, "Come and see the truth!" And, taking him, he led him to a darksome and fetid place where their burned fire and flames; and, in these flames he saw Nestorius, Eutyches, and certain others. And he who had appeared to him said, "This place is prepared for heretics and for those who follow their teachings. If this place pleases you, then continue in your present doctrine; but if you do not want to undergo this punishment, join yourself to the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church which that old man is teaching you to do. For I tell you that, although a man should practice all the virtues and yet not believe rightly, he will have to suffer in this place!" At these words, the brother regained consciousness, and told Cyriacus, on his return, all that he had seen. And then he joined the Holy Catholic Church."   (The Spiritual Meadow)



Saint Maximus the Confessor, died 650 A.D. >
"Therefore if a man does not want to be, or to be called, a heretic, let him not strive to please this or that man ... but let him hasten before all things to be in communion with the Roman See. If he be in communion with it, he should be acknowledged by all and everywhere as faithful and orthodox. He speaks in vain who tries to persuade me of the orthodoxy of those who, like himself, refuse obedience to his Holiness the Pope of the most holy Church of Rome: that is to the Apostolic See."   (Quoted by Pope Leo XIII in Satis Cognitum)

Note: In these times when there is no Pope, being with the Papacy is believing the formal teachings of the Papacy which is the Catholic Sources of Dogma. Please see Sections 12 and 13 and their sub-sections which prove that a heretic cult, the anti-Christ vatican-2 cult, has taken over our formerly Catholic properties. This happened on 8 December 1965 at the close of the "vatican-2 council".



Saint Bede the Venerable, O.S.B., Doctor of the Church, died 735 A.D. >
"He who will not willingly and humbly enter the gate of the Church will certainly be damned and enter the gate of Hell whether he wants to or not."   (Sermon 16)



Saint Bede the Venerable, O.S.B., Doctor of the Church, died 735 A.D. >
"Without this confession, without this Faith, no one can enter the Kingdom of God."   (Sermon 16)



Saint Bede the Venerable, O.S.B., Doctor of the Church, died 735 A.D. >
"Blessed Peter in a special manner received the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and the headship of judiciary power, that all believers throughout the world might understand that all those who in any way separate themselves from the unity of this faith and communion - such can neither be absolved from the bonds of their sins, nor enter the gate of the Heavenly Kingdom."   (Homily on the day of Saints Peter and Paul)



Alcuin of York, died 780 A.D. >
"He then gives the reason why he who believes not is condemned, viz. because he believeth not on the name of the only begotten Son of God. For in this Name alone is there salvation."   (cf. Catena Aurea by Saint Thomas Aquinas, St. John 3:18)

Note: Only Catholics "believe in the name of Christ" because the only Jesus Christ that exists is the Catholic One. The heretics "believe in" a fiction and fable they made up ... that they call Jesus Christ (such as the fake "lutheran Jesus", or the fake "baptist Jesus", etc.)



Saint George of San Saba, died 852 A.D. >
"Mohammed was a disciple of the devil, and his followers are in a state of perdition."   (In "Victories of the Martyrs" by Saint Alphonsus)

Note: Perdition means Hell.



Pope Sylvester II, 999-1003 A.D. >
"I profess that outside the Catholic Church, no one is saved."   (Profession of Faith made as Archbishop of Rheims, June 991)



Pope Saint Leo IX, 1049-1054 A.D. >
"So little does the Roman Church stand alone, as you think, that in the whole world any nation that in its pride dissents from her is in no way a church, but a council of heretics, a conventicle of schismatics, and a synagogue of Satan."



Pope Saint Leo IX, 1049-1054 A.D. >
"As far as the pillars of the empire are concerned and its wise and honoured citizens, the city is most Christian and orthodox. But we, not enduring the unheard-of offense and injury done to the Holy Apostolic and First See, wishing to defend in every way the Catholic Faith, by the authority of the Holy and Undivided Trinity and of the Apostolic See, whose legates we are, declare that Michael, patriarch by abuse; (...) Leo called bishop of Achrida; (...) and all their followers in the aforesaid errors and presumption shall be: anathema ... with all the heretics and with the devil and his angels, unless they repent. Amen."   (Sancta Romana Prima)

Note: The "orthodox" schismatics were thus excommunicated to burn with the devil and his angels. When they came to the Council of Florence to be momentarily reconciled, they professed to the Pope that: "We have come to you our head. You are the foundation of the Church. Every member that has left you is sick, and wild beasts have devoured the flock that has separated itself from you. (...) You who have the power of the heavenly keys, open to us the gates of eternal life."



Fourth Lateran Council, Pope Innocent III, 1215 A.D. -- Ex-Cathdra Dogma >
"One indeed is the universal Church of the faithful, outside which no one at all is saved."



Pope Innocent III, Fitts exemplo, to the Archbishop of Terraco, 18 December 1208 >
"By the heart we believe and by the mouth we confess the one Church, not of heretics but the Holy Roman, Catholic, and Apostolic (Church) outside which we believe that no one is saved."



Fourth Lateran Council, Canon 3 on Heresy, 1215 A.D. -- Ex-Cathdra Dogma >
"Those who are only found suspect of heresy are to be struck with the sword of anathema, unless they prove their innocence by an appropriate purgation, having regard to the reasons for suspicion and the character of the person. Let such persons be avoided by all until they have made adequate satisfaction."



Saint Francis of Assisi O.F.M., Founder, died 1226 A.D. >
"And so the Friars who are inspired by God to work as missionaries among the Saracens [Mohammedans] and other unbelievers must get permission to go from their minister, who is their servant. (...) We Friars Minor, servants and worthless as we are, humbly beg and implore everyone to persevere in the true faith and in a life of penance; there is no other way to be saved.

We beseech the whole world to do this, all those who serve our lord and God within the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, together with the whole hierarchy, priests, deacons, subdeacons, acolytes, exorcists, lectors, porters, and all clerics and religious, male or female; we beg all children, big and small, the poor and the needy, kings and princes, labourers and farmers, servants and masters; we beg all virgins and all other women, married or unmarried; we beg all lay folk, men and women, infants and adolescents, young and old, the healthy and the sick, the little and the great, all peoples, tribes, families and languages, all nations and all men everywhere, present and to come; we Friars Minor beg them all to persevere in the true faith and in a life of penance."   (Rule of 1221)



Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, died 1274 A.D. >
"But the unity of the Church exists primarily because of the unity of the Faith; for the Church is nothing else than the aggregate of the faithful. And because without faith it is impossible to please God, for this reason there is no room for salvation outside the Church."   (Expositio Primae Decretalis ad Archdiaconum Tudertinum)



Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, died 1274 A.D. >
"There is no entering into salvation outside the Church, just as in the time of the deluge there was none outside the ark, which denotes the Church."   (Summa Theologica III. 73, 3.)



Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, died 1274 A.D. >
"The Church's intention in baptizing is to cleanse from sin in accordance with Isaiah, "This is full fruit that sin be taken away." Thus, as far as the Church is concerned, it does not intend to give baptism except to those who have [the] true faith, without which there is no forgiveness of sins. And for this reason, the one being baptized is asked whether he believes. If, however, a person without [the] true faith receives baptism outside the Church, the sacrament does not work to his salvation. Hence, Augustine says, "The Church compared to Paradise indicates to us that men can receive her baptism even outside her, but the salvation of blessedness no one can receive or hold outside her."     (Summa Theologica III, 68, 8, 2. As above.)



Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, died 1274 A.D. >
"And because the consecration of the Eucharist is an act based on the power of Holy Orders, those (validly ordained priests) who are separated from the Church by heresy, schism or excommunication, are able to consecrate the Eucharist, which when consecrated contains Christ's true body and blood; yet they act not rightly and sin by so doing. Consequently they do not gather the fruit of the sacrifice, which is a spiritual sacrifice."   (Summa Theolgica, IIIa, 82, 7. As above.)



Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, died 1274 A.D. >
"On the other hand, the power of jurisdiction is that which is conferred by a mere human appointment. Such a power as this does not adhere to the recipient immovably: so that it does not remain in heretics or schismatics; and consequently they neither absolve nor excommunicate, nor grant indulgence, nor do any thing of the kind, and if they do, it is invalid."   (Summa Theologica, II, II, 39, 3.)



Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, died 1274 A.D. >
"It is shown also that it is necessary for salvation to be subject to the Roman Pontiff."   (Against the Errors of the Greeks. Opuscula Theologica, Vol. I, Part 2, Chap. 36



Saint Bonaventure, Doctor of the Church, died 1274 A.D. >
"Once these conditions [intention and Orders] are present, the sacraments may be conferred by either the good or the wicked, the faithful or the heretical, within the Church or outside it: but within the Church, they are conferred both in fact and in effect, while outside it, although conferred in fact, they are not effective." (...)

"Because none may be saved outside of the communion of faith and love which makes us members of the Church, whenever the sacraments are received outside of it, they are received with no effect toward salvation, although they are true sacraments. They may become effective however, when the recipient returns to Holy Mother Church, the only bride of Christ, whose sons are the only ones Christ the Spouse deems worthy of the eternal inheritance. Wherefore Augustine writes to the Donatists: "A comparison of the Church with paradise reveals that while strangers to the Church may receive its baptism, no one outside the Church may receive or possess beatific salvation."   (Breviolquium VI.)

Note 1: Those who are baptized as infants in heretic meeting halls are in fact baptized into the Catholic Church, if the form (words), matter (water), and intention (intention to remit Original Sin) of the sacrament are correct. When they reach the age of reason (7 years) if they are still in the heretic meeting halls they are automatically excommunicated for physical participation in a heretical society ("lutheran", "vatican-2", "baptist", "methodist", "evangelical", etc.) -- they are no longer Catholic and thus are removed from Christianity.

Note 2: For Mass, Confession, Confirmation, Ordination, Extreme Unction, and Consecrations ... jurisdiction must be granted by the Pope for a geographical Diocese or a Catholic Order (none of which exists in these times).



Pope Boniface VIII, 1294-1303 A.D. >
"We declare, we say, we define, and we pronounce that it is wholly necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff. The Lateran, November 14th, in our eighth year. As a perpetual memorial of this matter."   (Ex-Cathedra, Infallible, Unam Sanctam, A.D. 1302)



Pope Boniface VIII, 1294-1303 A.D. >
"We are compelled, our faith urging us, to believe and to hold; and we do firmly believe and simply confess; that there is one holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside of which there is no salvation or remission of sins; her Spouse proclaiming it in the canticles, "My dove, my undefiled is but one, she is the choice one of her that bore her;" which represents one mystical body, of which body the head is Christ, but of Christ, God. In this Church there is one Lord, one Faith, and one Baptism. There was one ark of Noah, indeed, at the time of the flood, symbolizing one Church; and this being finished in one cubit had, namely, one Noah as helmsman and commander. And, with the exception of this ark, all things existing upon the earth were, as we read, destroyed."



Pope Boniface VIII, 1294-1303 A.D. >
"This Church, moreover, we venerate as the only one, the Lord saying through His prophet, "Deliver my soul from the sword, my darling from the power of the dog." He prayed at the same time for His Soul; that is, for Himself the Head, and for His Body; which Body, namely, He called the one and only Church on account of the unity of the Faith promised, of the sacraments, and of the love of the Church. She is that seamless garment of the Lord which was not cut but which fell by lot. Therefore of this one and only Church there is one body and one head; not two heads as if it were a monster: Christ, namely, and the vicar of Christ, Saint Peter (who are one head, Christ and His Vicar:) "Feed my sheep." My sheep, He said, using a general term, and not designating these or those particular sheep; from which it is plain that He committed to him all His sheep."



Pope Boniface VIII, 1294-1303 A.D. >
"If, then, the Greeks or others say that they were not committed to the care of Peter and his successors, they necessarily confess that they are not of the sheep of Christ; for the Lord says, in John, that there is one fold, one shepherd, and one only."



Pope Boniface VIII, 1294-1303 A.D. >
"We are told by the word of the Gospel that in this His fold there are two swords; a spiritual, namely, and a temporal. For when the apostles said, "Behold here are two swords", the Lord did not reply that this was too much, but enough. Surely he who denies that the temporal sword is in the power of Peter wrongly interprets the word of the Lord when He says, "Put up thy sword in its scabbard." Both swords, the spiritual and the material, therefore, are in the power of the Church; the one, indeed, to be wielded for the Church, the other by the Church; the one by the hand of the priest, the other by the hand of kings and knights, but at the will and sufferance of the priest. One sword, moreover, ought to, be under the other, and the temporal authority to be subjected to the spiritual. For when the Apostle says "There is no power but of God, and the powers that are of God are ordained," they would not be ordained unless sword were under sword and the lesser one, as it were, were led by the other to great deeds."



Pope Clement VI, 1342-1352 A.D. >
"We ask if you believe and the Armenians obedient to you, that no man of those travelling outside the faith of the same Church and obedience to the Pontiff of the Romans can finally be saved; (... and) if you have believed and believe that all those who have set themselves up against the Faith of the Roman Church and have died in final impenitence have been damned and have descended to the perpetual torments of hell ?"   (Super Quibusdam)



Blessed Nicholas Talvilich, died 1391 A.D. >
"You mohammedans are in a state of everlasting damnation. Your koran is not God's law nor is it revealed by Him. Far from being a good thing, your law is utterly evil. It is founded neither in the Old Testament nor in the New. In it are lies, foolish things, buffooneries, contradictions, and much that leads not to virtue and goodness but to evil and to all manner of vice."

Note 1: Regarding the text "everlasting damnation" ... whatever mohammedan dies in his un-baptized pagan state and not believing the Catholic truths which come to us from Heaven ... loses his soul.

Note 2: Please see Section 113 and it's sub-sections ... which prove "islam" is a fraud.



Saint Vincent Ferrer, died 1419 A.D. >
"One who dies a jew will be damned." (He converted tens of thousands of them by his preaching.)



Juliana of Norwich, died 1423 A.D. >
"I knew in my faith that the jews were accursed and condemned without end, except those who were converted." (Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love)



Pope Eugene IV, Council of Basel, Session 19, Sept. 7, 1434 >
"Moreover, we trust that with God’s help another benefit will accrue to the Christian commonwealth; because from this union, once it is established, there is hope that very many from the abominable sect of Mahomet will be converted to the Catholic faith."

Note: This text is addressing the hopeful return of the Greek heretics ... back into the union of Christianity, which is the Catholic Church.



Council of Florence, Session 11, Pope Eugenius IV, 1442 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"It (the Catholic 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 Catholic Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the Church's sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed his blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church."



Pope Paul III, 1534-1549 A.D. >
"To all faithful Christians to whom this writing may come, health in Christ our Lord and the apostolic benediction. The sublime God so loved the human race that He created man in suchwise that he might participate, not only in the good that other creatures enjoy, but endowed him with capacity to attain to the inaccessible and invisible Supreme Good and behold it face to face; and since 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, it is necessary that he should possess the nature and faculties enabling him to receive that faith; and that whoever is thus endowed should be capable of receiving that same faith. Nor is it credible that any one should possess so little understanding as to desire the faith and yet be destitute of the most necessary faculty to enable him to receive it. Hence Christ, who is the Truth itself, that has never failed and can never fail, said to the preachers of the faith whom He chose for that office "Go ye and teach all nations." He said "all," without exception, for all are capable of receiving the doctrines of the faith. The enemy of the human race, who opposes all good deeds in order to bring men to destruction, beholding and envying this, invented a means never before heard of, by which he might hinder the preaching of God's word of Salvation to the people: he inspired his satellites who, to please him, have not hesitated to publish abroad that the Indians of the West and the South, and other people of whom We have recent knowledge should be treated as dumb brutes created for our service, pretending that they are incapable of receiving the Catholic Faith. We, who, though unworthy, exercise on earth the power of our Lord and seek with all our might to bring those sheep of His flock who are outside into the fold committed to our charge, consider, however, that the Indians are truly men and that they are not only capable of understanding the Catholic Faith but, according to our information, they desire exceedingly to receive it. Desiring to provide ample remedy for these evils, We define and declare by these Our letters, or by any translation thereof signed by any notary public and sealed with the seal of any ecclesiastical dignitary, to which the same credit shall be given as to the originals, that, notwithstanding whatever may have been or may be said to the contrary, the said Indians and all other people who may later be discovered by Christians, are by no means to be deprived of their liberty or the possession of their property, even though they be outside the faith of Jesus Christ; and that they may and should, freely and legitimately, enjoy their liberty and the possession of their property; nor should they be in any way enslaved; should the contrary happen, it shall be null and have no effect. By virtue of Our apostolic authority We define and declare by these present letters, or by any translation thereof signed by any notary public and sealed with the seal of any ecclesiastical dignitary, which shall thus command the same obedience as the originals, 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."   (Sublimus Deus)



Grouped together here are quotes from the English martyrs during the period of the demonic revolt
of some of the English heretics and (as usual) the jews against the Catholic Church in England ...
followed by a return to the general chronological presentation:

~ ~ ~ ~

Blessed Edmund Campion, S.J., died 1581 A.D. >
"There is but one plain known road: when you wander from this you are lost. You must be altogether within the House of God, within the walls of salvation, to be sound and safe from injury. If you wander or walk abroad ever so little, if you carelessly thrust hand or foot out of the Ship, you shall be thrust forth: the door is shut, the ocean roars, you are undone."



Henry Walpole, S.J., died 1595 A.D. >
"That by the grace of God he was in peace with all the world, and prayed God for all, particularly those who were the cause of his death; yet he heartily prayed for them, that God would enlighten them with His truth, bring them back to His Church, and dispose them for His mercy."



Henry Walpole, S.J., died 1595 A.D. >
"May His Divine Majesty never suffer me to consent to the least thing by which He may be dishonoured, nor you to desire it of me, and God is my witness, that to all here present, and particularly to my accusers, I wish as to myself the salvation of their souls, and that to this end they may live in the true Catholic Faith, the only way to eternal happiness."



Robert Southwell, S.J., died 1595 A.D. >
"Embrace His mercy before the time of rigour and return to His Church lest He debar you from His Kingdom. He cannot have God for his Father who does not possess the Catholic Church for his Mother. Turn now the bias of your heart towards the Sanctuary of Salvation and the city of refuge."



Robert Southwell, S.J., died 1595 A.D. >
"He cannot have God for his Father that refuses the Catholic Church for his Mother; neither can he attain to the Church Triumphant who is not a member of the Church Militant."



James Duckett, died 1602 A.D. >
"James Duckett showed great alacrity in his mind, and spoke boldly and cheerfully, to the astonishment of many beholders. He said of how he professed that he died a Catholic, and that so he had lived; [...] telling the people in general that he was most willing to die for that cause, and that it was as impossible for any one to be saved outside of the Catholic Church as for any to avoid the deluge that was outside of Noah's ark. (...) And so the cart was drawn from him."   (Life of James Duckett, Duckett's Bookshop)



Edmund Arrowsmith, S.J., died 1628 A.D. >
"You gentlemen, who are come hither to see my end, bear witness with me that I die a constant Roman Catholic, and for Jesus Christ's sake. Let not my death be a hindrance to your well-doing and going forward in the Catholic religion, but rather an encouragement therein. For Jesus' sake have a care for your souls, than which nothing is more precious; and become members of the true Church as you tender your salvation; for hereafter that alone will do you good. Nothing doth so much grieve me as this England which I pray God soon convert."



Fr. William Ward or Webster, died 1641 A.D. >
"Hereunto the Sheriff replied, saying, "You die not for point of religion, but for seducing the King's liege subjects." To this the Holy Martyr answered, he had seduced none, but reduced or converted many, the which he was glad of, and did wish he could not only have converted more, but even all England; because there was no other saving faith than that of the Roman Catholic Church, "and as for this faith, I die myself most willingly, so I say unto you all, that will hope for salvation, you must die in the same faith at least, if not for it." He hung till he was dead."



Fr. Hugh Green or Ferdinand Brooks, died 1642 A.D. >
"I am here condemned to die for my religion, and for being a priest. (...) Against this Roman Faith all the sectaries cried out; and all heretics that have been since Christ oppugn this faith, and yet truly out of it none can be saved."



Fr. Edward Morgan or Singleton, died 1642 A.D. >
"Before he spoke the servant of God kneeled down in the cart, (...) He began by signing himself with the sign of the cross, (...) "There is but one God," said he, "one faith, one baptism, one true Church in which is found true hope of salvation, out of which there can be none; and for this true Church of Christ I willingly die." (...) Then after he had recommended his departing soul by prayer to God, the cart was drawn away, and he was suffered to hang until he was dead, and then he was cut down, bowelled, and quartered."



Fr. Thomas Holland, S.J., died 1642 A.D. >
"Arising from the sledge, and perceiving the people to be very silent and attentive in expectation of what he should say, he began to speak to them (making the sign of the cross) to this effect: (...) Then he proceeded to tell the people that there could be but one true faith, one true Church, and no salvation out of it. (...) Then shutting his eyes for a while in silent prayer, then looking towards his confessor who was there in the crowd, at this signal given, received his last absolution; after which the cart was drawn away and he was left hanging till he quietly expired; his eyes being observed to remain fixed on heaven, and his hands all the while joined before his breast."



Venerable Francis Bell O.S.F., died 1643 A.D. >
"Many officers and other were drawn to the place where he was imprisoned. One of them asked him what religion he was of. (...) In fine, at parting, he told them plainly and sincerely that no salvation could be hoped for out of the Catholic Church, and that he wished them all to be even as he was, excepting his present state of confinement. (...) Then being put up into the cart, and having leave of the Sheriff (who treated him with a great deal of humanity) to speak to the people, he delivered himself to them in these, or the like words: " ... But above all, I exhort you to renounce heresy, in which you have been so long engaged; for this (with grief I speak it) has cut you off like putrid members from the true body of Christ, and like dead branches from the tree of His Church. (...) There can be only one Catholic Church, of which I am a member. This, with the help of God, I will profess till my dying hour. Rest assured, outside the Catholic Church there is no salvation." He hanged for the space of one Miserere, and then was cut down, dismembered, bowelled, and quartered."



Henry Morse, S.J., died 1645 A.D. >
"I am come hither to die for my religion, for that religion which is professed by the Catholic Roman Church, founded by Christ, established by the Apostles, propagated through the ages by an hierarchy always visible to this day, grounded on the testimonies of holy scriptures; upheld by the authority of fathers and councils, out of which, in fine, there can be no hope of salvation."



John Kemble, died 1679 A.D. >
""It will be expected I should say something, but as I am an old man, it cannot be much. (...) I die only for professing the old Roman Catholic religion, which was the religion that first made this kingdom Christian, and whoever intends to be saved must die in that religion." (...) The cart was drawn away, and he hanged at least half an hour before he was quite dead, the knot of the rope not being rightly applied; though this, as it is believed, happened rather by accident than design."




Return to the general chronological presentation of the Salvation Dogma

~ ~ ~ ~

Saint Francis Xavier, S.J., died 1552 A.D. >
"Many, many people hereabouts [the East] are not becoming Christians for one reason only: there is nobody to make them Christians. Again and again I have thought of going round the universities of Europe, especially Paris, and everywhere crying out like a madman, riveting the attention of those with more learning than charity: "What a tragedy: how many souls are being shut out of Heaven and falling into Hell, thanks to you!"   (Letter to Saint Ignatius Loyola, S.J.)

Note: All persons (before they die) receive the actual grace which prompts them to pursue the sanctifying grace of water baptism. This quote by Saint Francis should be read as an allegory -- that he was in need of help to instruct and baptize more people. >



Pope Saint Pius V, 1566-1572 A.D. >
"He Who reigns on high, to Whom is given all power in Heaven and on earth, has entrusted His Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside of which there is no salvation to one person on earth alone, namely: to Peter, the prince of the Apostles and to Peter's successor, the Roman Pontiff, to be governed by Him with the fullness of power." (Readings in Church History)



Pope Saint Pius V, Roman Catechism, 1566 A.D. >
"That faith thus understood is necessary to salvation no man can reasonably doubt, particularly since it is written: "without faith it is impossible to please God." For as the end proposed to man as his ultimate happiness is far above the reach of human understanding, it was therefore necessary that it should be made known to him by God. This knowledge, however, is nothing else than faith, by which we yield our unhesitating assent to whatever the authority of our Holy Mother the Church teaches us to have been revealed by God." (Part One, The Creed)



Pope Saint Pius V, Roman Catechism, 1566 A.D. >
"Infidels are outside the Church because they never belonged to, and never knew the Church, and were never made partakers of any of her Sacraments. Heretics and schismatics are excluded from the Church, because they have separated from her and belong to her only as deserters belong to the army from which they have deserted." (Part 1 article 9 section 3)



Pope Saint Pius V, Roman Catechism, 1566 A.D. >
"Among these figures [of the Church] the ark of Noah holds a conspicuous place. It was built by the command of God, in order that there might be no doubt that it was a symbol of the Church, which God has so constituted that all who enter therein through Baptism, may be safe from danger of eternal death, while such as are outside the Church, like those who were not in the ark, are overwhelmed by their own crimes." (Part 1 article 9 section 5)



Pope Saint Pius V, Roman Catechism, 1566 A.D. >
"Moreover, the Church alone has the legitimate worship of Sacrifice, and the salutary use of the Sacraments, which are efficacious instruments of Divine grace, used by God to produce true holiness. Hence, to possess true holiness, we must belong to this Church. (...) All other societies arrogating to themselves the name of "church", must necessarily, because guided by the spirit of the devil, be sunk in the most pernicious errors, both doctrinal and moral. (...) In Jerusalem only was it lawful to offer sacrifice to God, and in the Church of God only are to be found the true worship and true Sacrifice which can at all be acceptable to God." (Part 1 article 9)




Original Douay-Rheims Bible (1582 A.D.) with original commentary and marginal notes which address the Salvation Dogma

~ ~ ~ ~

Catholic writing of Ephesians 5:23 > "Because the man is the head of the woman: as Christ is the head of the Church. Himself, the Saviour of His Body."

Margin note: "No salvation out of the Catholic Church."

"23. "Saviour of His body". "None hath salvation or benefit by Christ, that is not of His Body the Church. And what Church that is, Saint Augustine expresseth in these words. "The Catholic Church only is the Body of Christ, whereof He is head. Out of the Body the Holy Ghost quickeneth no man.""

Note: In these times, when the Catholic Church has lost its buildings to the anti-Christ vatican-2 jew-heretic cult, one is still in the body of the Church if properly baptized (see Section 7) and believes the Dogmas of the Church. One is outside the Body of Christ (the Catholic Church) if physically participating in the anti-Christ vatican-2 heretical society (or other heretic group) - participation in a heretical society after the age of reason (7 years) causes your automatic excommunication (see Section 13.2.2).



Catholic writing of Hebrews 11:6 > "But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God, must believe that he is, and is a rewarder to them that seek him."

Margin note: "No salvation out of the Catholic Church."

"6. "He that cometh". "Faith is the foundation and ground of all other virtues and worship of God, without which no man can please God. Therefore if one be a jew, a heathen, or a heretic, that is to say, he be without the Catholic Faith, all his works shall profit him no whit to salvation."

Note: The heathen-pagans and jew-pagans are in the identical pagan (un-baptized) state.



Catholic writing of 1 St. John 1:3 > "That you also may have society with us, and our society may be with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ."

Margin note: "No salvation but in the Society of the Church."

"3. "You may have society". "St. John showeth manifestly, that whosoever desire to be partakers with God, must first be united to the Church's society, learn that Faith, and receive those Sacraments, which the Disciples received of the Truth Himself, conversant with them in flesh. So saith Venerable Bede upon this place. Whereby we see there is no society with God in sects or schisms, nor anywhere but in the unity, fellowship, and commandment of that Church which can prove itself to descend from the Apostles."

Saint Charles Borromeo, died 1584 A.D. >
"I wish to die in the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church in which all the saints since Jesus Christ have died, and out of which there is no salvation."   (Prayer to Guardian Angel)



Blessed Peter Canisius S.J., died 1597 A.D. >
"Outside of this communion, as outside of the ark of Noah, there is absolutely no salvation for mortals: not for jews or pagans who never received the faith of the Church, nor for heretics who, having received it, corrupted it; not for schismatics who left the peace and unity of the Church; and finally neither for the excommunicated or those who for any other serious cause deserve to be put away and separated from the body of the Church like pernicious members. For the rule of Cyprian and Augustine is certain: he will not have God for his Father who would not have the Church for his Mother." (Catechismi Latini et Germanici)



Venerable Robert Bellarmine S.J., died 1621 A.D. >
"Outside the Church there is no salvation ... therefore in the symbol (Apostles Creed) we join together the Church with the remission of sins: "I believe in the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins" ... For this reason the Church is compared with the ark of Noah, because just as during the deluge, everyone perished who was not in the ark, so now those perish who are not in the Church." (On the Sacrament of Baptism)



Venerable Robert Bellarmine S.J., died 1621 A.D. >
"I believe that for the good Christians there is eternal life full of every happiness and free from every sort of evil; as, on the contrary, for the infidels and bad Christians, there is eternal death full of every misery and deprived of every good."   (Compendium)

Note: Regarding the text ... "bad Christians" ... this means Catholics who have sadly fallen into mortal sin. "Bad Christians" is not referring to heretics ("lutherans", "vatican-2", "baptists", "methodist", etc.), heretics are not Christians.



Saint Francis de Sales, Doctor of the Church, died 1622 A.D. >
"Either you had the true Faith, or you had it not. If not, O unhappy ones, you are damned! ... Or else men can be saved outside the true Church, which is impossible! Here is the definition of the Church: The Church is a holy university or general company of men united and collected together in the profession of the one same Christian Faith; in the participation of the same Sacraments and Sacrifice; and in obedience to the one same Vicar and lieutenant-General on earth of Our Lord Jesus Christ and Successor of St. Peter; under the charge of lawful bishops. Thank God we are not jews; we are Catholics! (...) The Word of God is infallible; the Word of God declares that Baptism is necessary for salvation; therefore, Baptism is necessary for salvation."   (Catholic Controversies)



Saint Peter Claver S.J., died 1654 A.D. >
"Saint Ursula gave her life, together with that of all her friends, for the sake of that faith which I am now describing to you, and think how contrary is the religion you profess to that which they professed; and that Saint Lucius, King of England, was so obedient to the Roman Apostolic See, and had so great a respect for the Chair of Peter, that every year he sent to Rome rich gifts and jewels as tokens and tributes of his recognition. So too did all his descendants until Henry VIII and Ann Boleyn. And consider how that you and all your flock, misled, are following a road that ends in Hell!"



Blessed John Eudes, died 1680 A.D. >
"If I had died as a pagan, a heretic, or an apostate, you would have reason indeed to weep. (...) Weep! Weep! Burst into tears, tears of blood! For those are the people who are really dead. (...) It is for such a death that one must shed tears of blood, for those who have not lived as Christians. (...) Let infidels and heretics, let the relatives and the friends of bad Catholics weep without consolation and weep unceasingly for the death of their departed ones!"

Note: Needless to say, weeping for those that Blessed John Eudes is describing here does not help them as they are in Hell forever.



Pope Clement XI, 1700-1721 A.D. >

Response of the Holy Office: (D. 1349a):

"Question: Whether a minister is bound, before baptism is conferred on an adult, to explain to him all the mysteries of our faith, especially if he is at the point of death, because this might disturb his mind. Or, whether it is sufficient, if the one at the point of death will promise that when he recovers from the illness, he will take care to be instructed, so that he may put into practice what has been commanded him."

"Response: A promise is not sufficient, but a missionary is bound to explain to an adult, even a dying one who is not entirely incapacitated, the mysteries of faith which are necessary by a necessity of means, as are especially the mysteries of the Trinity and the Incarnation."

and ...

Response of the Holy Office: (D. 1349b):

"Question: Whether it is possible for a crude and uneducated adult, as it might be with a barbarian, to be baptized, if these were given to him only an understanding of God, and some of His attributes, especially His justice in rewarding and in punishing, according to the remark of the Apostle: "He that comes to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder", from which it is inferred that a barbarian adult, in a certain case of urgent necessity, can be baptized although he does not believe explicitly in Jesus Christ.

Response: A missionary should not baptize one who does not believe explicitly in the Lord Jesus Christ, but is bound to instruct him about all those matters which are necessary, by a necessity of means, in accordance with the capacity of the one to be baptized."



Blessed Louis Marie de Montfort, died 1716 A.D. >
"The learned and pious Jesuit, Suarez, the erudite and devout Justus Lipsius, doctor of Louvain, and many others have proved invincibly, from the sentiments of the Fathers (among others, Saint Augustine, Saint Ephrem, deacon of Edessa, Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, Saint Germanus of Constantinople, Saint John Damascene, Saint Anselm, Saint Bernard, Saint Bernardine, Saint Thomas and Saint Bonaventure), that devotion to our Blessed Lady is necessary to salvation, and that it is an infallible mark of reprobation to have no esteem and love for the Holy Virgin; while on the other hand, it is an infallible mark of predestination to be entirely and truly devoted to her."   (True Devotion to Mary)



Blessed Louis Marie de Montfort, died 1716 A.D. >
"The heretics, all of whom are children of the devil and clearly bear the sign of God's reprobation, have a horror of the Hail Mary."   (The Secret of the Rosary)



Blessed Louis Marie de Montfort, died 1716 A.D. >
"My heart is penetrated with grief when I think of the almost infinite number of souls who are damned for lack of knowing the true God and the Christian religion. The greatest misfortune, O my God, is not to know thee, and the greatest of punishments not to love thee."



Pope Benedict XIV, 1740-1758 A.D. >
"Without this faith of the Catholic Church no one can be saved."   (Profession of Faith for the Orientals, Nuper ad Nos)



Blessed Pompilio Mary Pirrotti, died 1756 A.D. >
"In the presence of the Most Holy Trinity, the Blessed Virgin Mary, my Holy Guardian Angel, and the entire Heavenly Host, I protest that I wish to live and die under the standard of the Holy Cross. I firmly believe everything our Holy Mother, the Catholic and Apostolic Roman Church, believes and teaches. It is my steadfast intention to die in this Holy Faith in which all the Holy martyrs, confessors and virgins of Christ have died, as well as all those who have saved their souls."   (The Raccolta)



Saint Alphonsus Maria Liguori CSSR., Doctor of the Church, died 1797 A.D. >
"We must believe that the Roman Catholic Church is the only true Church; hence, they who are out of our Church, or they who are separated from it, cannot be saved."   (Instructions on the Commandments and Sacraments)



Saint Alphonsus Maria Liguori CSSR., Doctor of the Church, died 1797 A.D. >
"The Holy, Roman, Catholic, and Apostolic Church is the only true Church, outside the pale of which no one can be saved."   (Instructions on the Commandments and Sacraments)



Saint Alphonsus Maria Liguori CSSR., Doctor of the Church, died 1797 A.D. >
"The so called reformers have revived ancient heresies and have sought by sophisms and false doctrines to destroy the faith of Jesus Christ, and, if possible, to bring with themselves all souls to eternal perdition."   (On the Council of Trent.)



Elizabeth Mother Seton of New York, Founder, died 1821 A.D. >
To Mrs. Livingston a heretic: "I told her it was a curious contradiction in principles which allowed every sect that could obtain a name to be right and in the way of salvation."   (Mother Seton by Father Feeney, Ravensgate Press, 1975.)



Pope Leo XII, 1823-1829 A.D. >
"It is impossible for the most true God, who is Truth Itself, the best, the wisest Provider, and rewarder of good men, to approve all sects who profess false teachings which are often inconsistent with one another and contradictory, and to confer eternal rewards on their members. For we have a surer word of the prophet, and in writing to you We speak wisdom among the perfect; not the wisdom of this world but the wisdom of God in a mystery. By it we are taught, and by Divine Faith we hold, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and that no other name under heaven is given to men except the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth by which we must be saved. This is why we profess that there is no salvation outside the Church. (...) For the Church is the pillar and ground of the truth. With reference to those words Augustine says: "If any man be outside the Church he will be excluded from the number of sons, and will not have God for Father since he has not the Church for mother."   (Ubi Primum)



Pope Pius VIII, 1829-1830 A.D. >
"Among these heresies belongs that foul contrivance of the sophists of this age who do not admit any difference among the different professions of faith and who think that the portal of eternal salvation opens for all from any religion. (...) 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."   (Traditi Humilitati)



Pope Gregory XVI, 1831-1846 A.D. >
"Now we examine another prolific cause of evils by which, we lament, the Church is at present afflicted, namely indifferentism, or that base opinion which has become prevalent everywhere through the deceit of wicked men, that eternal salvation of the soul can be acquired by any profession of faith whatsoever, if morals are conformed to the standard of the just and the honest. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that "there is one God, one faith, one baptism" may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbour of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that those who are not with Christ are against Him, and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore "without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate." Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: "He who is for the See of Peter is for me." A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: "The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?"" (Mirari Vos Arbitramur)



Pope Gregory XVI, 1831-1846 A.D. >
"For in fact, you know as well as We do, Venerable Brothers, with what constancy our Fathers endeavoured to inculcate this article of faith which these innovators dare to deny, namely, the necessity of Catholic faith and unity to obtain salvation. This is what was taught by one of the most famous of the disciples of the Apostles, Saint Ignatius Martyr, in his Epistle to the Philadelphians: "Do not deceive yourselves," he wrote to them, "he who adheres to the author of a schism will not possess the kingdom of God." Saint Augustine and the other bishops of Africa, assembled in 412 in the Council of Cirta expressed themselves in the following terms on the subject: "He who is separated from the body of the Catholic Church, however laudable his conduct may otherwise seem, will never enjoy eternal life, and the anger of God remains on him by reason of the crime of which he is guilty in living separated from Christ." And without citing here the witness of almost innumerable other ancient Fathers, we will limit Ourselves to quoting Our glorious predecessor, Saint Gregory the Great, who gives explicit testimony to the fact that such is the teaching of the Catholic Church on this head. "The holy universal Church," he says, "teaches that God cannot be truly adored except within its fold: she affirms that all those who are outside her will not be saved." It is also stated in the decree on faith published by another of Our predecessors, Innocent III, in concert with the Fourth Ecumenical Council of the Lateran, "one indeed is the universal Church of the faithful, outside of which no one at all is saved." Finally, the same teaching is expressed in the professions of faith which have been proposed by the Apostolic See; in the one which all the Latin Churches use; as also in the two others, one of which is received by the Greeks, and the other by all other Eastern Catholics. If we have cited these authorities among so many others We might have added to them, it was not, Venerable Brothers, with the intention of teaching you an article of faith as if you were ignorant of it. Far be it from us to entertain so absurd and so damaging a suspicion in your regard! But the astonishing boldness with which certain innovators have dared to attack one of our most important and obvious Dogmas has made so painful an impression upon Us that We could not prevent Ourselves from speaking at some length on this matter. Strive to eradicate these slithering errors with all your strength." (Summo Iugiter Studio)



Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, On Faith and Religion, Paragraph 19, 9 Nov 1846 >
"You must also care for and defend the Catholic faith with episcopal strength and see that the flock entrusted to you stands to the end firm and unmoved in the faith. For unless one preserves the Faith entire and uninjured, he will without doubt perish forever."



Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, On Faith and Religion, 9 Nov 1846, Paragraph 20 >
"Never cease to instruct all men in it ... never tolerating and letting pass anything which could in the slightest degree defile the purity of this faith. With the same great strength of mind, foster in all men their unity with the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation."



Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, On Faith and Religion, 9 Nov 1846, Paragraph 31 >
"In your compassionate mercy you seek out and overtake with your love the straying and perishing sheep ... You place them paternally on your shoulders ant lead them back to the fold ... from the rage, assault and snares of ravening wolves. You keep them away from poisonous pasture land and drive them on to safe ground, and in all possible ways you lead them by deed, word and example to the harbor of eternal salvation."



Pope Pius IX, Ubi primum, Paragraph 10, 17 Jun 1847 >
"For there is one universal Church outside of which no one at all is saved; it contains regular and secular prelates along with those under their jurisdiction, who all profess one Lord, one faith and one baptism."



Pope Pius IX, Nostis et Nobiscum, 8 Dec 1849, Paragraph 10 >
"In particular, ensure that the faithful are deeply and thoroughly convinced of the truth of the doctrine that the Catholic faith is necessary for attaining salvation. The Catholic laity and clergy should repeatedly offer special thanks to God in public prayers for the priceless gift of the Catholic religion. They should also beseech God to protect the profession of this faith in our country and to keep it unharmed."



William Joseph Chaminade, died 1850 A.D. >
"The union of Christ with the members of the Mystical Body is obtained only by membership in the Church, for outside this chaste Spouse there is no union with the Bridegroom. She alone has the advantages of this divine union, and she alone has received the keys which are a mark of the power attached to the union. She alone is united to the Bridegroom, and she alone possesses the fecundity which is the fruit of this union. There is no life outside the Church for all the life that is to be had can come only from her, and no one possesses this life unless he belongs to her. Outside the Church there is no salvation."   (Mary in Our Christ-Life)



Pope Pius IX, Singulari Quidam, Paragraph 4, 17 Mar 1856 >
"There is only one Divine faith which is the beginning of salvation for mankind and the basis of all justification, the faith by which the just person lives and without which it is impossible to please God and to come to the community of His children."



Blessed John Marie Vianney, died 1859 A.D. >
"The Cur of Ars once gave a medal to a heretic who visited him, who exclaimed: "Dear sir, you have given a medal to one who is a heretic. At least I am a heretic from your point of view. But although we are not of the same religion, I hope we shall both one day be in heaven." The holy priest took the gentleman's hand in his own, and giving him a look which seemed to reach into his very soul, answered him, "Alas! My friend, we cannot be together in heaven, unless we have begun to live so in this world. Death makes no change in that. As the tree falls so shall it lie. Jesus Christ has said, "He that does not hear the Church, let him be to thee as a heathen and a publican." And He said again, "There shall be one fold and one shepherd." and He made Saint Peter the chief shepherd of His flock." Then in a voice full of sweetness, he added, "My dear friend, there are not two ways of serving Jesus Christ; there is only one way, and that is to serve Him as He Himself wishes to be served." Saying this the priest left him. But these words sank deeply into the man's heart, and led him to renounce the errors in which he had been brought up, and he became a fervent Catholic."   (Life of the Cure of Ars)



John Neumann, died 1860 A.D. >
"Can we be saved in every religion? No, we can be saved only in the religion that Jesus Christ has taught. Where do we find this religion of Jesus Christ? We find it in the Roman Catholic Church."   (Catechism of the Christian Religion)



Pope Pius IX, Quanto Conficiamur Moerore, On Promotion of False Doctrines, Paragraph 13, 10 Aug 1863 >
"Admonish and exhort them to be strong in our sacred faith, without which it is impossible to please God. Urge them to persevere firmly established in our divine religion, which alone is true and eternal and prepares for salvation."



Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, Condemning Current Errors, Paragraph 6, 8 Dec 1864 >
"Amidst, therefore, such great perversity of depraved opinions, we, well remembering our Apostolic Office, and very greatly solicitous for our most holy Religion, for sound doctrine and the salvation of souls which is intrusted to us by God, and (solicitous also) for the welfare of human society itself, have thought it right again to raise up our Apostolic voice. Therefore, by our Apostolic authority, we reprobate, proscribe, and condemn all the singular and evil opinions and doctrines severally mentioned in this letter, and will and command that they be thoroughly held by all children of the Catholic Church as reprobated, proscribed and condemned."



Vatican Council of 1870, Session 2, Profession of Faith, Pope Pius IX, 1846-1878 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"This true Catholic Faith, outside of which none can be saved, which I now freely profess and truly hold, is what I shall steadfastly maintain and confess, by the help of God, in all its completeness and purity until my dying breath, and I shall do my best to ensure that all others do the same. This is what I, the same Pius, promise, vow and swear."



Vatican Council of 1870, Session 3, Chapter 3 On Faith, Paragraphs 8-9, Pope Pius IX, 1846-1878 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"Wherefore, by Divine and Catholic Faith all those things are to be believed which are contained in the word of God as found in scripture and tradition, and which are proposed by the Church as matters to be believed as Divinely revealed (...) Since, then, without Faith it is impossible to please God and reach the fellowship of his sons and daughters, it follows that no one can ever achieve justification without it, neither can anyone attain eternal life unless he or she perseveres in it to the end."



Anthony Mary Claret > died 1870 A.D. >
"When we say, I believe in the Holy Catholic Church, we are not speaking of the material church (alone), the place in which we faithful unite to pay God that tribute of love, honour, and attention which we owe to Him, and which is called religion. In this sense "church" means temple, house of God, or house of prayer. But by those words of the Creed, we affirm belief in the Church as the society or congregation of the faithful, united by the profession of one and the same Faith, united also by participation in the same Sacraments, and by submission to the legitimate prelates, principally to the Roman Pontiff. (...) In the first place He made it One. Not having more than One God, nor been given more than One Faith, as Saint Paul says, and One Baptism, which is the door of His Church and of the other Sacraments, neither can there be more than One True Religion in which men can please God and accomplish His most holy will. (...) By this the true Church is distinguished from the synagogues of Satan or heretical sects, of which some teach one thing, others another. (...) And, actually, there have been, there are now, and there always will be saints in the Catholic Church.

But heretical sects can count not even one, nor will they ever have them. Do you know how they evade this argument? They make fun of the saints and even of the Most Holy Virgin Mary. (...) They will find that those Catholics who observed the laws and doctrine taught by our Holy Church are saved while heretics, even though they observed their own "laws", are condemned! (...) She is Catholic also with respect to places, or to Her reach and diffusion throughout all the world, clasping to Her breast all groups of people without distinction of nations, classes, ages, or sexes. In all times, in all countries, and in all groups of people where She is found, She has held, and will continue to hold, one and the same Faith, one and the same doctrine of morality, and one and the same form of government under the Roman Pontiff. And Her members, wherever they are found, will always be united by the same beliefs, by the same hope, and by charity, being alive by grace. Thus, She embraces all those who are to be saved. For She is another ark of Noah. Outside of the ark everyone drowned in the flood; and so also will everyone drown or be damned who does not choose to enter into this mystical ark, the Church of Jesus Christ. "Who does not have the Church for a mother," says Saint Cyprian, "cannot have God for a father." [...] Here you have explained for you, my son, the four marks which I told you God left us in order that we may know the true Church. By these we cannot confuse Her with the many synagogues of Satan, which also pretend to be the Church of God. We can see that none are in peace or unity except ours. Furthermore, we can conclude that ours is the only truth, in which and with which we must live and die united in order to be able to go to heaven. (...) Consequently, the evasions of the heretics are futile. For this reason you cannot doubt that the only true Church is our Catholic, Apostolic, and Roman Church, in which you must persevere, inwardly and outwardly. And with all preciseness must you observe Her holy laws if you want to save your soul. Otherwise, you will be lost forever." (The Catechism Explained)

All grace starts with God, goes to the hands of the Blessed Virgin, and then into the world. God (Grace Himself) came into the world
by the Blessed Virgin, God never changes, all grace follows the same path to this day and until the end of the world.
