The above statement highlighted in red is heretical, if interpreted to mean that those who are unknowingly separated from the Church may be saved while remaining in that state. This, indeed is false, as a simple reading of the Gospels will quite clearly reveal (St. John 3:5, 14:6), and as the Church has solemnly defined. At this point it behooves the reader to learn the proper meaning of invincible ignorance in Catholic theology, as taught by St. Thomas Aquinas and later by Pope Pius IX, which meaning we must believe Father Goffine was proposing, unless this is merely an insertion by the translator.
