Council of Carthage and limbo

Thanks for the replies! :)

Shin, the link helped me to finally understand how Limbo is related to God's Justice and Mercy.. and how it's not unmerciful. I mean the revelations to St Brigid.. that helped a lot. I was more confused before but now Limbo makes more sense. I don't have an objection to it. I mean it shows God's Justice because the infants have original sin, but it shows God's Mercy because they are not suffering... they are deprived of the Beatific Vision but they don't suffer torments of hell, which probably makes their existence sort of like a happy life on earth? I mean - maybe better than that because there's suffering on earth.

I'm still wondering about St Thomas and whether unbaptized babies like those who die before birth can have their original sin removed... I agree that with original sin people can't go to Heaven, and that Baptism is the ordinary way to remove original sin. So this makes Limbo the most likely. With adults, they can make a choice and have baptism of blood / desire... infants can't make choices yet... so that points to Limbo. I wonder what St Thomas meant though. I can just leave that part of it to God. As it says in the CCC we leave them to God's Mercy.. (which doesn't exclude Limbo cause they are close to God's Mercy in Limbo)
