In the Catholic Church, there are sacraments. Those sacraments have rules that must be followed when a sacrament is administered and received.
Some baptisms have been performed using a feminist ideology that has become quite popular.
According to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), the proper formula to baptize is to use the words, “I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” the words Jesus instructed the apostles to use as cited in the Gospel of St. Matthew.
But baptisms have been performed saying, "in the name of the Creator, and of the Redeemer, and of the Sanctifier." The words “Father and Son” were replaced because they were considered chauvinistic.
The feminist version is invalid.
A statement by the Vatican on Friday says the feminist formula undermines faith in the Holy Trinity. If a celebrant uses the terminology, "in the name of the Creator, and of the Redeemer, and of the Sanctifier," the ceremony is not a true sacrament and the baby needs to be baptized again.
My pastor talked about this in church today.
He suggested that if you know of anyone who was baptized with the invalid formula or know of anyone who is using the invalid formula that you contact the Archbishop’s office.
The reach of the feminists has even gotten to Catholic baptisms.
Shame on them.
