Abstract :
In the everyday life of the Church community, the application of CIC c. 868 §1, 2˚ not infrequently contributes to tensions between the faithful and their pastors. The primary goal of this article is to explain how this canon is to be interpreted in light of a variety of human and family situations, including the adoption of children by homosexual couples and a growing number of couples living in irregular marriages. May the infants of such parents be baptized in light of the condition of the canon that there must be a founded hope that the child will be raised in the Catholic religion?



Dans la vie quotidienne de la communauté ecclésiale, l’application du canon 868 §1, 2° contribue souvent aux tensions entre les fidèles et leurs pasteurs. L’objectif principal de cet article est d’expliquer comment ce canon doit être interprété à la lumière de diverses situations humaines et familiales, notamment l’adoption d’enfants par des couples homosexuels et le nombre croissant de couples vivant dans des mariages irréguliers. Est-ce que les enfants de ces parents peuvent être baptisés compte tenu de la condition du canon selon laquelle il doit exister un espoir fondé que l’enfant sera élevé dans la religion catholique?
