Pope Francis baptises baby of an unmarried couple in the Sistine Chapel during Baptism Of The Lord mass at the Vatican
Pope Francis was conducting Baptism Of The Lord mass today
He baptised 32 children, including one of unmarried parents
Francis has supported baptising the children of unmarried mothers
Pretty standard stuff of course. It’s the baby’s soul at issue, not whatever sins its parents may or may not have committed.
Of course, you can indeed say that you’ve no interest in all this Sky Fairy stuff, but it has always been true that within the Church, baptism is indeed about the child being baptised, nothing else.
Priests who have refused have been doing very much the wrong thing.
