Vatican Document due on limbo


Taken from above link:

Now that Pope is overseeing an advisory board of theologians who are revisiting the idea and thus far have come to the conclusion that it makes more sense to hope unbaptized babies go to Heaven than to any place that is in-between.

The Vatican theologians met October 2-6 to continue work on a statement explaining why the concept of limbo entered the common teaching of the Church.

“We cannot say we know with certainty what will happen” to unbaptized babies, said Father Paul McPartlan, a member of the commission and a professor at the Catholic University of America in Washington, “but we have good grounds to hope that God in his mercy and love looks after these children and brings them to salvation.”
