Hope or Presumption?

Melkite Wrote:I've skimmed over the first couple of pages of this thread, and am not really willing to waste any more time reading it, so forgive me if this has already been said.  It seems to me the problem with this particular topic is the traditionalist (not traditional) understanding in which Limbo is a must and unbaptized infants can only go to limbo, based on the teaching that without baptism one cannot enter heaven.  I don't really see why it is so hard for the rad-trads to see that even though the Church has definitively taught that baptism is necessary for salvation, the Church has NEVER taught that God does not make a way possible for those who did not receive baptism through no fault of their own (unbaptized infants, those who die before birth, etc.).  I'm not sure why the trads are so hell-bent on such a pharisaical understanding of God.  While one can't presume God does make a way possible, those who prefer to believe in Limbo have neither right nor grounds to condemn those who believe God's mercy will make a way possible for unbaptized infants to enter heaven.

It is not for the faithful to believe in made up theories with no basis in Catholic teaching.  That's creating a new religion. 

Saint Augustine:

<font color="#000000"><font face="Baskerville BE Regular"><font size="2"><font face="Arial, sans-serif">
Quote:If you wish to be Catholic, do not believe, do not say, and do not teach that children who die without baptism can obtain the remission of original sin,
</font></font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Arial, sans-serif"><font style="font-size: 8pt;" size="1"><i>De anima et eius origine</i>, Bk. III, Ch. 9.</font></font></font>

Cardinal Journet

<font color="#000000"><font face="Baskerville BE Regular"><font size="2"><font face="Arial, sans-serif">“in response to the question of whether children who die without baptism, before attaining the use of reason, have some other way of salvation..., all the indications of the Magisterium converge towards one response: No</font></font></font></font>" La Volonte Divine Salvifique sur les Petits Enfants

I see no reason why you should believe that.  It tends towards modernism:

<font size="3"> <font size="2" face="Arial">
Quote:Others destroy the gratuity of the supernatural order, since God, they say, cannot create intellectual beings without ordering and calling them to the beatific vision. </font></font><i><font size="2" face="Arial">Humani Generis 26</font></i><font size="3"> </font><font size="2" face="Arial">
