You are saying that there are NO Catholics in Heaven that died by Baptism of Desire as a catechumen who died before he/she received the Sacrament of Baptism ?
I am saying all who are in Heaven are there with the baptism of water in the Catholic Church this is the teaching of the dogma as it was interpreted over the centuries.
How sad that truly is for them? There are NO non Catholics in Heaven.
I believe that everyone who dies and is in Heaven since he/she died is in the Catholic Church.
If they are in Heaven they are Catholics in the Catholic Church.
The Church has NOT professed untold classes of Catholics for centuries????? Those saints who died from Baptism of Blood or Desire are recognizable by the Catholic Church in naming them over centuries. What do you possibly mean that they are not recognizeable or that countless Saints have been named and discussed over the centuries?
No one on earth could have seen or known in particular of someone who is in Heaven without the baptism of water.It is a physical issue.
Of course there are Saints in Heaven who died by Baptism of Blood and Desire who are KNOW to us. There are saints in Heaven who died through invincible Ignorance UNKNOWN to us. They are all Catholics. There are only Catholics in Heaven.
O.K if they have the baptism of water in the Catholic Church, yes.-Lionel Andrades
