Baptism of Desire, if attained, is a one-time deal at the time of death, due to perfect contrition and charity.  Really, why are you trying to make this so hard, when it really is simple?

Who says it's a "one-time" deal at the time of death?...and where is that taught?

If it is so simple  :eyeroll:, please post the comprehensive doctrine re: baptism of desire...

You have been pointed to the relevant parts of Trent, the commentaries on Trent and the perennial theological teachings of the Church.  If you persist in your error after all of that, that is your problem, and is between you and God.  Claiming that you have not been shown is clearly not true, and again as Father Cekada argues, is probably sinful.
