Hi! I just registered to this forum and I absolutely LOVE the advice given on here! After hearing today’s Gospel and reflecting on it throughout the day, a question crossed my mind. If someone has not been fortunate enough to be baptized, are they not to be considered a dearly loved child of God? I know that we are adopted through the Sacrament of Baptism and become God’s children, but for those who never had access to Baptism or just simply never heard of it nor God, are they still dearly loved children of God? I know that someone can be baptized through desire and by blood if not by water, but I also know that there are some communities out there in the world that have simply never been exposed to the truth of Baptism.
