51:06 – . Julie… Rochester, MN… I’m a cradle Catholic and I have a two-part question about baptism:  I’ve had relatives who wished to have their children baptized by a priest, but the priest denied them because of their living situations and lack of practicing their faith themselves. I understand that any Christian baptism is valid as long as proper form is used, so these relatives likely could have gone to another Christian church and had their children baptized and it would have been seen as valid by the Catholic Church. So what is the reasoning for just not baptizing the children in the Catholic Church as requested, when other baptisms would be considered equally valid? It seems that the other Christian churches are more willing to offer the grace to the innocent child. Also, in the Catholic Church, holy water is used for baptism. This is not available in other Christian churches, and often not available in emergency situations either, so I’m having difficulty seeing those baptisms as equally valid.
