Does the water mentioned in John 3:5 refer to the water of baptism, or can it mean amniotic fluid?


The Living Bible for Catholics has a distressing footnote on John 3:5 (&quot;Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God&quot;). The footnote says that the water in the passage may refer to &quot;the normal process observed during every human birth.&quot; Aren&#039;t Catholics required to say that this refers to water baptism rather than to the &quot;waters&quot; of human birth?
