My First Convert

Through further conversations with the parents on other questions, I just realized that I baptized a Jewish baby the other day. Some of the baptism paperwork had been done by someone else and I had not noticed that the mother was Jewish, making the baby a Jew. He's my first convert!

Since nobody's born a Christian, and we become Christians at our baptism, aren't we all converts, in a sense? I thought that was why the term "cradle Catholic" was used, rather than "born Catholic".
