Luke 18:15-17 (DRB) And they brought unto him also infants, that he might touch them. Which when the disciples saw, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus, calling them together, said: Suffer children to come to me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Amen, I say to you: Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a child, shall not enter into it.
I'm aware of course that this most likely means:
Not only must you allow them to partake in the Kingdom of God, but unless you become innocent and simple like these infants, you yourselves cannot enter the Kingdom.
However, has Luke 18:17 ever been interpreted by the Fathers of the Church as a direct teaching of infant baptism (i.e. the impossibility of the inheritance of heaven for the unbaptized)?
That is, interpreted it as having the meaning:
Let the infants come to Me: the Kingdom of God is for them also [and they, too, are in need of it as sons of Adam]. Indeed, unless a child is born again in baptism, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God [i.e. a potential tragedy to be avoided by the above teaching].
Thanks in advance.
