I might do a longer post on here or IGI (or crosspost) later this weekend if people are in the specifics of the Catholic view of salvation with regards to other belief systems.
Translation: I'll do some bullshitting for the Pope so we can get out of this mess. If I type enough fluff and stuff it will sound like he didn't mean what he said. Three or four paragraphs of bullshit and religious mumbo-jumbo ought to be enough
Fortunately, as others have said, it doesn't really mean a damn thing since it's all imaginary anyway.
