I started attending a prayer group at one of my local parishes. At the end of the prayer group they pray for aborted children, their mothers and all involved in the abortion. They follow this with praying a decade of the Rosary for the aborted children. After this comes what they call a “SPIRITUAL BAPTISM” The ritual is as follows: “For all the boy babies aborted I name you John Paul and I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” They sprinkle Holy Water three times like a normal baptism. Then they do the same for all the girl babies aborted.
My question is “Is this Catholic Theology?” It was started by a Carmalite Sister in the group and I just don’t feel right about it. Should this practice be stopped? If so, what can I use as an authority to stop it?
Any help would be most welcome. Thank you.
