Limbo...how low can you go?

Before you read the below article, you should open this link either in a separate window or tab, but only do that if you have more than dial up speed.

Okay, new link: I've been waiting for this story about limbo. It clears up a lot of confusion, especially among certain old faishioned catholics that believed we still taught limbo was a truth. It was a theological opinion that was never verified by the universal church. I was especially appreciative of the statements...

"Grace has priority over sin, and the exclusion of innocent babies from heaven does not seem to reflect Christ's special love for "the little ones," it said."Our conclusion is that the many factors that we have considered ... give serious theological and liturgical grounds for hope that unbaptized infants who die will be saved and enjoy the beatific vision," the document said."We emphasize that these are reasons for prayerful hope, rather than grounds for sure knowledge"
