[quote:2t6lidi3]NO! Salvation is NOT found otuside the Catholic Church! Other churches can HAVE part of Catholicism in them, or non-Catholics can have part of it in them, but there IS NO SALVATION outside of the Catholic Church, which the Catechism is VERY clear on.[/quote:2t6lidi3]
Not sure what Catechism you are reading….

819 “Furthermore, 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.” [color=red:2t6lidi3]Christ’s Spirit uses these Churches and ecclesial communities as means of salvation[/color:2t6lidi3], whose power derives from the fullness of grace and truth that Christ has entrusted to the Catholic Church.

You seemed so very sure of yourself…. what a pity.

Peace,
