Yet more on Limbo

Super-hero Liechtenstein priest Johannes Maria Schwarz, on kath.net - the book of his doctoral thesis is on the subject.

I would like to add one more personal remark. In my study I found that limbo is not only valid as an explanation, it also has a greater probability than most other theories and as a model of non-salvation a longstanding tradition with authority. I do not rejoice over the fact, that such a state could be the state of unbaptized children. But then, there are many things in this world, I find hard and difficult. I often fail to understand why God permits this or that, but I do not believe in God because he conforms to my image, but simply because God is. I trust, that how he ordains things it is right, just and merciful.

And Zadok Romanus also offers a theological overview. ('...the ITC would be prudent to say no more than the Cathechism of the Catholic Church...')
