The Catholic church has rescinded limbo. From now on babies that die without being baptized won’t be left hanging. Well, maybe they will be – but the Catholic Church “hopes” God will take them anyway.
The Church made no statement about the millions that were placed into limbo before this revision of doctrine – are they now out of limbo, and if so, where are they? Heaven, or hell? God only knows I guess. Because it’s pretty clear the Catholic Church isn’t sure.
