Does the article on infant baptism come to a conclusion? It just seems to go on and on and on and on.
In late 1955, my mother took me to St. Francis of Rome in Azusa, CA, to be baptised. The priest told her, “There’s no way in hell I’m going to baptise a bastard.”
Who are these Protestants? Why are they frowning? And who let them into this caucused thread?
We have two young sisters (ages 9 and 11) in our parish who have never been baptized. The parents left the decision up to them. Mercifully, we were able to convince the father to enroll the two girls in Religious Education. Both have now expressed a desire to be baptized into the Catholic Church. Their reception will be scheduled sometime in the month of January. Praise be to God!
So, is there a special rite or ceremony by which an Orthodox person is received?
Unfortunately, because of this one rather innocuous phrase, the "caucus" status of this thread was removed. Seems trivial, but what can you do? It's a shame that this thread is likely to be completely co-opted for no real reason, so, in the future, perhaps ALL threads posted by Catholics for caucus status can be read through by the poster first, and ALL references to our separated brethren, no matter how innocuous, can be removed beforehand.
It's ridiculous that it has come to this, but let's go the extra mile and keep those threads that should be caucused "intact"!
