Baptism of Desire and Theological Principles by Fr. Cekada

(12-29-2011, 08:30 PM)Parmandur Wrote: "CANON IV.-If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law are not necessary unto salvation, but superfluous; and that, without them, or without the desire thereof, men obtain of God, through faith alone, the grace of justification;-though all (the sacraments) are not indeed necessary for every individual; let him be anathema."

Trent itself says that the desire for a sacrament has a certain grace in it.  Following the universal, Ordinary teaching of the Church.

So we simply neglect reading the first part of the canon all together?
It does have a certain grace in it - what it does not have in it is salvation.
