Pope Benedict steps down.

Recommended Posts

So it is my understanding that this Pope eliminated "limbo"? Is that correct? Can a Pope do something like that? I would think only God could do that.

Seriously I intend no offense or ridicule. I am curious about how that came about.

Limbo was never church dogma. So there was nothing to eliminate. Ratzinger merely felt that the importance of baptism stood on its own merits without the need for limbo to motivate believers to baptize their infants. Others have disagreed.
