I was so pleased to read this and know it expresses how I feel. I have a very close friend that does good deeds but misses the spirit that was described in the article. She makes feel turned against the catholic faith. She reads that her close friends will turn against her because of her true following and that you first must learn to hate those closest to you before you can learn truly how to love no one above Jesus?? I do not recognize the true warm spirit she used to be. So sad.

Hi Fr Walter,

How do you make out what CCC #1261 teaches us? That is: “As regards children who have died without Baptism, the Church can only entrust them to the mercy of God, as she does in her funeral rites for them. Indeed, the great mercy of God who desires that all men should be saved, and Jesus’ tenderness toward children which caused him to say: “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them,” allow us to hope that there is a way of salvation for children who have died without Baptism. All the more urgent is the Church’s call not to prevent little children coming to Christ through the gift of holy Baptism.”

I believe “Limbo” was previously suggested as the place unbaptised children go to but it is now taught that these children now enter into a state of “natural happiness” instead of enjoying the Beautific Vision.

I am glad the church has softened its position on unbaptized infants since the nuns taught me in the 50’s. Same with original sin – now guilt by association not personal guilt. But the improvements are still but polishing the turd. It’s all bronze age nonsense.

I am neither cathloic or jew but am a christian from birth. I did not fully understand what a christian was untill much later in my life. My own faith into whic I was born, practiced the baptism of infants. As I grew into manhood, my faith never left me and Christ is more alive to me today then He ever was in my youth. My study of the scriptures and a desire know the truth and a willingness to listen have revealed much of the spirit of the word rather than just the letter. I came to understand that baptism was by choice and nobody could choose it for me. Baptism is unto the sick and those who recognize and acknowledge their sin an desire to surrender it to Christ even though they fail to keep the Word with perfection due to a recognition of their imperfection and need for redemption. Thank God for the revelation of this truth, that I may be born of Christ and in this symbolic gesture, proclaim Christ to be the Author and Finnisher of my faith. In Jesus name, Amen.
