Reasons for hope
This is a reason for hope.
and even this.
And don't forget this.
But this is not. A document on the shelving of Limbo. First of all what does the document really say? It says that "we may hope" that infants who die without Baptism may be saved. It does not say that infants who die without Baptism will be saved.
But in our rush to oversentimentalize everything- THAT will be completely lost.
And the practical effects will be a further erosion in the importance of Baptism and its necessity for Salvation.
I wonder why we are falling all over ourselves worrying about the effects of the Motu Proprio as if that will be the great cataclysm? And this?
I don't get it.
But happily over at Rorate Caeli they do.
