“Thus in the great religions, which the Church considers with respect and esteem in the way indicated by the Second Vatican Council, Christians recognize the presence of saving elements, which nevertheless operate in dependence on the influence of Christ’s grace. Therefore, by virtue of the mysterious action of the Holy Spirit who “blows where he wills” (Jn 3:8), these religions can contribute to helping men on their way to eternal happiness. But this role is also the fruit of Christ’s redemptive activity. Thus, with regard to other religions, Christ the Savior is also mysteriously at work.”

So does this mean that other religions are able to ‘save’, albeit their salvatory power is via Jesus?
