If you're baptized, you're Catholic. You just don't know it ;-)
Marcus Grodi's guest on this week's edition of Journey Home was a former Baptist Minister. After leading many catholics away from their faith, he decided to join the Catholic Church. He was quite surprised to learn that his previous baptism was valid. There was no need to be re-baptized.

It won't feel like home until I am Pope teeing off on hole #1 odf the Totus Tuus Three Par course on the grounds of the Vatican.
But, you did spark a potential ex cathedra pronouncement, " A special dispensation for those baptized by immersion by your truly in the water hazzard adjacent to the ninth green."
Mrs. Pope will not fee at home until she visits the Outlet Mall complex being constructed adjacent to the Vatican. The kids are anxious to hear the Dolby surround system in the Sistine Chapel Theater.
I have sold rights to Disney to film a sequel to "The Beverley Hillbillies, entitled the "The Eternal City Cajuns."

Of course it was valid. It is on the right side of the cross.Can't say the same for infant Baptisms.
