eringobrough~iwhy were my husband and i told by a priest that if our older child were to be baptized in another denomination (that it would not be valid in the RCC and she would need to be baptized there, so as to be baptized "into the Church" (meaning RCC) as he put it?
I'm not exactly sure, because that's not quite the case. One exception I can think of is the LDS/Mormon church which baptizes in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit but do not have the proper understanding of the Trinity (they view it as three separate beings instead of One Being with Three Persons) so their baptisms are not valid in the Catholic Church.
However, having a valid baptism doesn't mean that she can receive other Catholic sacraments. So maybe that's what the priest meant (Continued)
