Question 360

Hello Pater, if one person christens an adult, a female then can that same adult then christen a male. Can they then marry siblings. Even though they are not blood related        

   

 

Answer to Question 360

 

I not sure I have fully understood your question, I got lost somewhere between the adult and the female, so let's see how I understood it. Someone baptizes an adult female. The adult female then baptizes a male. Now who is going to marry siblings? the Adult female and the male she baptized or the first person who baptized the adult female? See my confusion  

 

Same member

 Sorry about that let me try and explain it again if I can. One adult baptises two adults. Can they, the baptised, then marry two siblings.

According to the canons of the church they may marry.
