EENS - Extra Ecclesia Nulla Sallus - Outside the Church there is No Salvation

Feast of Saint Marcelino Champagnat

EENS is an acronym for the Latin phrase "Extra Ecclesia Nulla Sallus" which means "Outside the Church there is No Salvation. It is church doctrine. But because humans can be so dense, it has had to be defined THREE times by THREE different popes! (One time is enough to make it doctrine.) Anyway, Father Z over at What Does the Prayer Really Say? wrote a post on today's papal audience regarding the Holy Father's comments on EENS and how it may/may not relate to the motu proprio & the SSPX.
