Thank you for taking the time to answe this. A very dear friend of mine has started the RCIA to be baptised. She was told a few months ago in passing by her father that her grandmother may possibly have baptised her as a child. The father doubts that it did happen and it seems there was no-one there to witness it and no real evidence that the baptism even occurred or, if it did occur, that it was validly carried out. My friend is terrified as she has not lived a godly life and she now looks to her upcoming baptism as a real washing away of her past and the start of a whole new chapter. Should she be concerned that she is already baptised? Is it reasonable to proceed on the assumption that she is not baptised?
You help is hugely appreciated.
