Encouraging the Gospel of Life

The head of the Georgian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Ilia II, has come up with an astonishingly successful incentive to counteract the country’s plummeting birth rate.
To encourage families to have more children the Patriarch has promised to personally baptize any baby born to parents who already have two or more children.
What a wonderful idea! I think Catholic bishops should take it up, especially in Europe. Heck, with the low birthrates on that continent, the Pope could probably promise to personally baptize any 3rd baby in a family!
Perhaps I can convince Archbishop Wuerl would baptize our next child…
