Not any more, since the RC belief in Limbo of Infants was abolished in 2007 by Pope Benedict XVI. The very idea that unbaptised infants who were personally sinless could nevertheless be barred from Heaven by the sins of their ancestors was repugnant even to those RC faithful who unquestioningly believed the RC magisterium, as elaborated by the Pope.


Oh that's good... did that work retrospectively?
Creating a kind of refugee crisis for the celestial city?
Or did it only apply to kids mis-baptised afterwards?

ah - this possibly explains why in Sunday's "Call the Midwife" there was something i hadn't followed as to why a still born/dead baby was buried in a coffin of an adult with that adult, so it could be buried in consecrated ground (whatever year was being portrayed in this latest episode but I'm guessing the 60s? )

Yes it was certainly in the catechism I was taught that "original sin" would be a bit of an issue in that regard
