Quote:17 Q: Can the absence of Baptism be supplied in any other way?
A: The absence of Baptism can be supplied by martyrdom, which is called Baptism of Blood, or by an act of perfect love of God, or of contrition, along with the desire, at least implicit, of Baptism, and this is called Baptism of Desire.

Um...firstly the Catechismo della Dottrina Cristiana was never bound on the universal Church when it was published in 1908...and secondly, that quotation is from another book called Compendium of Catechetical Instruction by one Msgr. Hagan which was published in 1910.
