This paper comes as a response to the ecumenical spirit and culture of a world primarily informed by the teaching of the Second Vatican Council. This paper will briefly introduce the theology of Karl Rahner, specifically his theologies of grace ands alvation. What is so striking to this author about Rahner’s views is that he saw a way tos tay faithful to the Catholic Tradition which he loved while at the same time broadening the borders of the church and hence extending the community of the saved. In that light,t his paper is inspired by a strong belief in the goodness of all humanity and the saving will of God towards all humanity.
