The Pope And The Martians
The Bishop of Rome has just stated if Martians were to land on the Earth and ask for Baptism, he would not refuse. I am assuming he means “if they believe in God and want to be good Christians”; but I ain't sure, either.
My reflection is, though, another one.
If the Martians were to land on earth and say “we desire to be baptised because we believe all that the Church believes and profess all that the Church professes, and are therefore persuaded that outside of the Only Church there can be no salvation….”
Would Francis still want to baptise them?
