Pope Francis said "You [the atheist he was writing to] can be saved if you turn to Him with a sincere and contrite heart."
That quote always kind of puzzles me. Doesn't it mean the atheist isn't an atheist anymore? How else could one turn to Him in whom the atheist doesn't believe exists? I conclude that atheists who remain atheists probably won't be saved but those who do not might well be (in other words, same as what we have believed all along).

(Some things aren't really true but you wouldn't be half surprised if they were.)
That's right. Nobody can reject Jesus Christ at the end, and be saved. Rejecting your only rescuer, is the same as refusing to be rescued!
