Note: “…many elements of sanctification and of truth” are found
outside the visible confines of the Catholic Church: “The written
Word of God; the life of grace; faith, hope, and charity, with the
other interior gifts of the Holy Spirit, as well as visible elements.”
Christ’s Spirit uses these Churches and ecclesial communities as
means of salvation, whose power derives from the fullness of grace
and truth that Christ has entrusted to the Catholic Church. All these blessings come from Christ and lead to him, and are in themselves
calls to “Catholic unity.” (Cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 819)
 
“Let the Church always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven.” (Pope Francis)
