During the Protestant Reformation Lecture...

I was telling my students about the possible [looking for a confirmed source that it has been done] abolition of limbo for those who die unbaptized (apparently, they'll go to heaven now?).

One of my students asked, and logically so, "What happens to the dead infants before now?"

I gave a response that still makes my head spin (and makes me giggle like an insane schoolgirl):
"I don't know if there's a grandfather clause for dead unbaptized infants in limbo."

I do have a way with words...
