12 – Ecumenism of Blood is a Priceless Contribution toward Christian Unity

From our most basic notions of Catechism we know that “Baptism of blood” incorporates into the Holy Church those who have died for their faith in Christ, even though they have not yet received sacramental Baptism. Francis, in turn, speaks of an “ecumenism of blood”, which would unite all of those who suffer persecution; Catholics, Orthodox, Copts and Lutherans, at times even including Muslims and ministers of other religions on the list. Consequently, many questions arise…

  1. Your basic premise that ‘baptism of blood’ can be a substitute for water baptism is false and contrary to the canons of the Council of Trent 2 & 5 in particular. Water baptism is the sacrament necessary for salvation/entry into the Church. As the creed says ‘There is one Lord, one faith and one baptism.’

    ST. JOHN 3
    5 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.

    “If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary in Baptism, and therefore interprets metaphorically the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ: “Unless one be born again of water and the Holy Ghost”: Let him be anathema.”
    Council of Trent Canon 2

    “If anyone saith that baptism is optional, that is, not necessary to salvation; let him be anathema.”
    Council of Trent, Session 7, Canon 5. (Mar. 3, 1547)
