The question "No Salvation Outside the Church?" is difficult to answer because it requires a long historical examination of theology with implications for the way today's Catholics interact with people of other faiths. Fr. Dias asked us to consider that since God desires all to find salvation, God will give all people sufficient grace. This grace moves all people closer to salvation by helping us communicate together in four ways:
1. We share together in the joys and sorrows of life, informally through sharing feelings or formally through interfaith marriages or funerals.
2. We work together in one community to achieve the the liberation of people.
3. We respectfully exchange theological perspectives to achieve mutual understanding of each other's faith backgrounds.
4. We pray together.
