A friend of mine, years ago, gave birth to a stillborn child. She was later told by a Catholic that it was a shame that the child did not live long enough to be baptised because the child could not go to heaven. Everytime I hear something strange like this, I research it and find that the position of the Church makes a tremendous amount of sense. I am assuming that the Catholic was mistaken. I cannot find the answer to this question in the Catechism. Can someone tell me what the Church teaches on this subject?
Thanks and God Bless You All, Tim
