This is a bit crazy or off the wall. But I was just wondering, because of a question posed by many non-Catholics and Catholics. Some people want to be baptized NOW or they want their children baptized NOW. I understand the desire. So,
what would actually happen if those people desireing to be Catholic or their children to be Catholic went to a baptistry before, during or after mass and actually used correct formula to publicly baptize their own child while taking videos/pictures for proof? It seems to me that a non-Catholic desiring to become Catholic (but also wanting to be immediately baptized) should go to any Church that uses a valid formula for baptism. I’ve known of many people getting baptized that the leaders/preacher did not actually baptize them or allow someone to perform a baptism on their own child.
Sounds kind of messed up, but if their are witnesses the deed is done and the person can go straight into RCIA as a candidate (already baptized / Christian) rather than a catechumen (non-baptized / non-Christian).
