comment Can a Catholic priest conduct a Catholic baptism upon the request of non-Catholic parents, assuming that they will raise the child Catholic?
And you will see it uses the word "guaranteed" about the child's Catholic upbringing. It does rather assume that parental consent (which to me implies only an openness) indicates such a guarantee, but it is for the priest to assess the validity of the "guarantee", and I emphasise that point myself. I'm afraid I don't think your answer says anything mine does not.

While I link to an internet source for an internet readership, I do actually possess the (two-volume) book I reference in my answer. I used that to write the answer and then found it online -- which was surprisingly difficult. The Roman Ritual has not yet been republished as the Roman Missal was recently, and the 1964 edition is still current. It needs to be interpreted in accordance with the 1984 CIC (for example, what infidel should be taken to mean), but I don't believe what I have written in my answer conflicts. And even when it is republished, the answer is date-stamped.

It might help to spell out the initialisms, I think.

comment What did Jesus mean by seventy times seven?
@curiousdannii This question specifically asks for Catholic teaching, which is conspicuously absent in the other question and its answers. That may not preclude this being a duplicate, or a merge candidate, but a kneejerk reaction to close may benefit from consideration.

comment What are the major Christian Festivals
Mardi Gras is a Christian festival called Shrove Tuesday, when sins are shriven before Lent. "Mardi Gras" comes from using up food which should not be consumed in Lent (or at least, on Ash Wednesday) -- which is where the British custom of pancakes comes from: various things can be used as fillings.

comment What pronoun do Catholics typically use to refer to the Eucharist?
The pronouns in this answer refer to the Lord, not to the wafers or wine specifically. I think it's right that pronouns are not used for the sacrament itself. "I'm just going to put him in the tabernacle" is facetious; "I'm just going to put it (or this) in the tabernacle" might deny the supernatural nature of a sacrament. "I'm just going to put the Sacrament in the tabernacle" would be far more common.

comment How do Catholics view physical and digital copies of the Bible?
There are still two questions here. I am fairly sure the one about tablet/electronic devices is objectively answerable.

comment How do Catholics view physical and digital copies of the Bible?
There are still three questions here: on digital bibles; on handling the bible; and on approved translations. All are only tangentially related.

comment Vatican approved miracles
@MattGutting Actually, I would say Yes, in general. Miracles are important in the progress to canonisation, and the Holy See does pronounce on authentic visions and associated miracles. I suspect everything is reported in the Acta, but they only go back to 1870ish, are in Latin and don't easily show classifications like "Miracles recognised".

comment Why did the Roman soldiers compete to possess Jesus' clothes?
It strikes me that removing the two words "blood soaked" would do wonders for this question.

comment What is the Orthodox canon?
Looks to me like it's the same as Catholicism because the canon was settled before the Great Schism, so it's something which is shared.
