The Apostles were baptized before they received the Eucharist, the Last Supper were they not? Does anyone have an idea on when they were baptized? Children can be baptized shortly after Birth and receive confirmation later. I have someone attending the RCIA. She is mentally challenged. She comes with another who is a Cradle Catholic and also mentally challenged. She is like a child, he is like a child. All she knows right now is that she wants to be Catholic. She loves the Church, the Mass and Jesus. She has been attending Mass the last couple of months. She has begun the RCIA in just the last few weeks. She was not asked to go to the right of acceptance. I was told last night that she would have to wait until next year to be baptized. She is hurt, He is sad. They do not understand. But because she is special she will most likely stick around. Christ in me tells me that there is a problem here.
