Actually having just seen it I would like clarification. I think the catechism and Catholic Apologists and theologians are quite clear on this subject. I think the subject was more than covered multiple times on this thread. If Fr Dye is advocating that baptism is not necessary until the age of reason then he would be contrary to the teachings of the church
We are bound by the sacraments but the Lord is not.
The Church baptizes babies because baptism is the new circumcision of the New Covenant (Col. 2:11-12), just as the circumcision of eight-day old babies was the sign of the Old Covenant (Gen. 17:12; Lev. 12:3). In Acts 2:39, Peter says baptism is for children as well as adults. The word used for children ("teknon") means infants, which is proved by Acts 21:21 in reference to eight-day old infants. We see in Acts 10:47-48; 16:15,33 and 1 Cor. 1:16 that entire households were baptized. Household ("oikos") included infants and children. There is nothing in the Bible about a "believer's baptism." It would have been unthinkable from a Jewish perspective to exclude children from God's covenant kingdom. See also in Matt. 9:2, Mark 2:3-5, Matt. 8:5-13, Luke 6:10, Mark 9:22-25 where people are healed based on another person's faith (just as babies are washed away of sin based on their parents' faith).
There is a difference between what is "truly necessary" and what is "allowed."
From its origins, the Church has alway allowed infant baptism.
We have rocked back and forth as to whether it is truly necessary.
For example, if we regard that infants who die before baptism have no salvation, then it would be silly to have a mass of Christian Burial for them. But with the children of Christians, the Church does this, commending such children to God's mercy.
Jesus said we must be born again, of water and the Spirit. There it is. Thunk.
So ... how to deal with the parents of a child who has died, when we have refused them baptism because they have not attained the age of reason?
It makes much more sense to do (as the very early Church seems to have done) baptism for infants presented to the Church for this, and continue in catechesis when they are capable of receiving it. The Holy Spirit can act as He chooses, and if He chooses to pour out sufficient grace for Heaven on an infant, baptized or unbaptized, who would we be to question it?
God is not bound by the sacraments, but WE ARE, and shoukd not act as roadblocks to God's grace.
