Catholics believe that "the message of Jesus is intended for all"

"10Be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God hath raised from the dead, even by him this man standeth here before you whole.

" 11This is the stone which was rejected by you the builders, which is become the head of the corner.

"12Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved."

-- Acts, Chapter 4
