I have to quibble with your quibble:

[indent]normal means of Baptism -- by a priest, using water and the proper form, etc. -- is the goal and is expected whenever possible, but if it's impossible for some reason, "Baptism of desire" will work.[/indent]

The minister if Baptism does not have to be a priest; anyone can baptize. And a person is not baptized by desire in place of regular baptism except at the moment if death.


Thanks for the link :)

I agree with your quibble of my quibble! But to quibble with your quibble of my original quibbling, I was contrasting the normative way of doing things with the non-normative, but I think you're right in that mentioning non-priestly ministers should've been the first thing listed (I mean, I didn't even mention it at all!)! So I'm glad you pointed that out for folks reading over our shoulders!

Anyway, wasn't it a good article?! I was so pleased to see something dealing with Catholicism that had no SNARK, no nastiness, no -- oh, you know the drill. And the writer responded to my note and came off even cooler. So yay!
