  • In the Gospel of St. John 3, we read of the converted Pharisee Nicodemus. It so happens that this Christian convert has left us an account of Christ's descent into hell and the manner in which He communicated the merits of His Passion to the ot patriarchs to heal them of the last remnants of original sin tainting their person.

    The archangel Michael farther commanded us to go beyond Jordan, to an excellent and fat country, where there are many who rose from the dead along with us for the proof of the resurrection of Christ.

    5 For we have only three days allowed us from the dead, who arose to celebrate the passover of our Lord with our parents, and to bear our testimony for Christ the Lord, and we have been baptized in the holy river of Jordan. And now they are not seen by any one.

    6 This is as much as God allowed us to relate to you; give ye therefore praise and honour to him, and repent, and he will have mercy upon you. Peace be to you from the Lord God Jesus

    These things are related. Thoughts? Comments?

    It was to him the Lord said, "Jesus answered: Amen, amen, I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    3:5  Respondit Jesus: Amen, amen dico tibi, nisi quis renatus fuerit ex aqua, et Spiritu Sancto, non potest introire in regnum Dei.

    Do make Acts of Consecration to the Twin Hearts, Spiritual Offerings of the Precious Blood of Jesus in Union with the Holy Mass, like in St. Gertrude's Chaplet, along with Spiritual Communions at least every hour. The Saints say Spiritual Communions are a way to quickly advance to Union with God.

  • This question is worth re-examining and it supports the theory of St. Augustine, of Fr. Feeney and others; namely, that the grace of justification, the first necessary grace for salvation, is often bestowed on the soul before Baptism through Baptism of Desire. But the grace of final perseverance, the last and sufficient grace that completes salvation, is bestowed on the person after the Sacrament of Baptism. It seems to be a striking confirmation of that theory that we have some ancient sources in Tradition that say those waiting in Limbo were apparents the recipients of the sacrament of baptism in some extraordinary way, after which they went straight to Heaven.

    Those in Limbo fell under the Old Law, so Baptism was not required for them.  If they received some sort of "extraordinary baptism", this is not in any way related to the New Testament, or BOD, or anything of the sort.  It would simply be a spiritual fulfillment of the Old Testament circumcision rite.

    Asking other laymen nobodies for speculation about a quote from a fallible non-canonical book. 

    I'd suggest the OP get busy with his money earning work, if he has any. If not, get busy finding one.
