The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! “Father, the atheists?” Even the atheists. Everyone!…We must meet one another doing good. “But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!” But do good: we will meet one another there.

Pope Francis, proclaiming that even non-believers will be redeemed by Christ, as long as they “do good” (not all Christians subscribe to this theory).

I have to say, I don’t think the Pope was conditioning his statement on good works. I think he was just imploring us to do them regardless of our beliefs, while simultaneously proclaiming the gospel. To paraphrase: “All are saved, so be good to each other.”
