I am talking to a non Catholic and he asked me what immemorial tradition is? We are discussing infant baptism and he wanted to know what the term specifically meant. thanks
1252 The practice of infant Baptism is an **immemorial tradition **of the Church. There is explicit testimony to this practice from the second century on, and it is quite possible that, from the beginning of the apostolic preaching, when whole “households” received baptism, infants may also have been baptized.
