Batismo de bebês por imersão: gloob-gloob de Jesus!

E aí, pode ou não pode? Saiba o que a Igreja ensina

Tem gerado muito bafafá nas redes sociais os vídeos de padres mergulhando bebês inteiramente na água no momento do batismo. O mais curioso é que, pelo visto, a “moda” está pegando aqui no Brasil. Mas pode isso?

Sim, pode! A Igreja Católica admite o batismo de crianças e adultos dessa forma, por imersão. Porém, historicamente, esse rito é muito mais usado pelas igrejas católicas orientais sui iuris.

O Código de Direito Canônico diz:

“Cân. 854 – O batismo seja conferido por imersão ou por infusão, observando-se as prescrições da Conferência dos Bispos”.

Por sua vez, a CNBB diz que, no Brasil, o costume é batizar por infusão (jogando água sobre a cabeça); essa é a praxe. Porém, “permite-se o batismo por imersão, onde houver condições adequadas, a critério do Bispo Diocesano”.

Muita gente não sabe, mas nos primórdios da Igreja, o batismo era feito preferencialmente por imersão. Porém, como nem sempre havia um lugar apropriado para realizar o rito dessa forma, era também admitido o batismo por infusão. Com o tempo, nas igrejas do Ocidente, por uma questão de maior praticidade, o batismo por infusão acabou se tornando o mais comum, enquanto no Oriente permaneceu a prática do rito por imersão.

Então, já sabemos que pode. Mas será que se deve batizar bebês, aqui no Brasil dessa maneira? É mesmo uma boa ideia? Bem, cada diocese tem sua própria realidade. Daí a importância do zelo e bom senso de cada bispo.

Mas, já que muitos de nossos leitores pediram a nossa opinião, eu – eu – acho que o batismo de adultos por imersão, por seu simbolismo forte e rico, pode muito bem ser aplicado para os adultos em nossas paróquias. Mas quanto aos bebês, a coisa não é tão simples assim.

Por não estarem acostumadas com o rito do batismo por imersão, as famílias costumam ficar muito apreensivas ao ver seus bebês sendo mergulhados na água. É possível que alguns pais nem mesmo queiram que seus filhos sejam batizados assim. Sinceramente, é necessário expor os fiéis a esse tipo de tensão?

Outro problema é que, por não ser parte da nossa cultura, nem todo o padre tem a “manha” de afundar o bebê de forma causar a ele o mínimo desconforto possível. No vídeo abaixo, podemos ver o batismo de uma criança ortodoxa. O sacerdote faz tudo com tanta delicadeza que ninguém se mostra preocupado, e o bebê quase nem chora.

Nessa outra igreja ortodoxa, os padres se mostram muito habilidosos em um batismo coletivo, em que 500 bebês foram batizados:

Porém, um erro pode ser fatal. Apesar de raros, acidentes em batismos de bebês por imersão acontecem. Em 2010, um bebê morreu após ser submerso três vezes durante batismo, em uma igreja ortodoxa na Moldávia. Uma desgraça!

Portanto, não dá para um padre do Rito Latino um dia acordar e, do nada, resolver fazer batismo de bebês por imersão. Ele precisa refletir se, do ponto de vista pastoral, essa novidade será realmente frutífera, e também precisa estar bem seguro do que está fazendo, para não haver acidentes nem pimpolhos traumatizados.
