Interesting article. As I was reading it I was reminded of a topic I would like some clarification on. Perhaps this is not the proper place to ask, but is there an existing thread on the topic "Outside the Church there is no salvation"? If not I would be grateful to see one started.
I have always thought of this as something like, "without" the Church, or "except for" the Church, since it is certainly possible for God to save someone who is not a practicing member of the Catholic Church. I understand that any baptized Christian is actually a member of the Church and that others can be baptized by blood or by desire, but I still don't feel entirely confident if I were asked to explain all of this.
