Dear CAF sisters/brothers in Christ,
My paternal grandfather was a Protestant and was baptized in the Protestant tradition. He died suddenly of a heart attack in his sleep. I was thinking of him the other day, and I remember reading that “there is no salvation outside of the Catholic Church.” Although my grandfather was a Christian and followed Christ, would not being Catholic disqualify him from attaining eternal salvation?
Thankfully, my maternal relatives are all Catholic, even my now deceased great-grandmother and grandfather.
Many thanks and Pax Christi.
