Kansas Archbishop Offers to Himself Baptize Babies to Encourage Large Families

TFP:,  Francis Slobodnik  In a 2014 column in the archdiocesan paper, The Leaven, the archbishop stated, “The question for Catholic couples should not be: How many children do we want to have?” Archbishop Naumann then outlined his new policy saying that “as a small gesture to encourage Catholic married couples to be generous in their openness to life, I am offering to baptize any child who is at least a couple’s third child…. My purpose in doing this is to demonstrate my personal support for those couples who take seriously the call to be generous in cooperating with God’s grace in giving life.” More here.
