Talk 1:    Are All Predestined to be Saved?

Does God want all to be saved, or are only some predestined to salvation and others predestined to perdition?  The fact of creation means that we are all graced by God to share in His love and life.  God is the Saviour of all human beings since He is the God of all.  His eternal Salvific Will for all is called predestination.  If God wants all to be saved, then it implies that His Redemptive Will must be able to reach out to all.  How can all be saved?

Talk 2:    Is There Salvation Outside the Church?

St Paul underscores that it is God’s Will that “all should find salvation and come to know the truth.” (1 Tim 2:4)  What about those who are ignorant of Christ, can they be saved outside the Church?  If they can be saved, how are they saved? Can they be saved through their own religions?  How does the grace of Christ reach out to those who are non-Christians?
