    hearts to bring them into communion with the
    Blessed Trinity.

    subjectively applied to the life of each
    individual, who may or may not respond to grace.

    transform men from within.

  • What does extra Ecclesiam nulla salus mean?
  • Literally, it means outside the Church there is
    no salvation.

24
2. The Mystical Body Necessary for Salvation
FOCUS QUESTIONS
  • What is the relationship between the necessity of
    the Church for salvation and the missionary
    enterprise?
  • Because the Church is necessary for salvation,
    the Church has the obligation to preach the
    Gospel to the whole world.
  • If the Church is necessary for salvation, are all
    those who are not Catholics damned to Hell?

  • ANTICIPATORY SET
  • Ask the students to imagine they are Christians
    living AD 200.

    prophet Mani who tells them that their form of
    Christianity is in error and that the following
    doctrines are, in fact, true
  • There is a cosmic battle under way between two
    gods.
  • Satan is the evil creator of the evil material
    world.
  • God is the good creator of the good spiritual
    world. Satan stole some of the light of the
    spiritual world and put it in human beings.
  • Secret knowledge and asceticism can liberate
    this light, which is the way that the elect are
    saved.
  • This missionary can give you this secret
    knowledge if you join his sect. Then, have the

    they would begin to defend their Christian faith
    against these ideas.

FOCUS QUESTIONS
  • What effect should the Kingdom of God have on
    earthly realities?
  • In her preaching of the Gospel, the Church
    proposes the ethical principles to guide the
    transformation of the world and provides the
    graces necessary for men to act in accord with
    them. The laity, then has the major
    responsibility to reconstruct the secular world
    so that Gods will be done on earth.
  • What would be the effect if each person embraced
    the Kingdom of God within them?
  • People would be free from the slavery of sin and
    reconciled with God. Private and public life
    would be characterized by real liberty,
    well-ordered discipline, peace, and harmony.
