When two of our new immigrant children, Lebanese boys, were taken by their parents to be enrolled at one of the Catholic parochial schools, the parish priest (who has to approve non-Catholic enrolments) refused to allow their enrolment even thought they had baptismal certificates from Lebanon. Before he would allow them to enroll at school he re-baptized them.stanley123 said:[Why would God make it so difficult for a person who is concerned about his eternal salvation and who is concerned about receiving valid, efficacious and true Sacraments from his Church? Is it reasonable to suppose that God would set it up like this so that it is impossible to determine which Church has the true Sacraments ?
These boys now have a full immersion Orthodox baptism and a Catholic baptism by sprinkling.
Seems to me that Catholics get a bit fluffy minded about who has and who does not have true Sacraments.
