The Sacrament of Baptism
Baptism is the Sacrament of Initiation which cleanses us of original sin and makes us a child of God.
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Baptism is the Sacrament which brings us into the Body of Christ and allows us to participate in the life of the Church. The Catholic Catechism tells us that Baptism may only be administered to a person who has never been previously baptized.
Baptism of infants is a blessed tradition of the Catholic Church and it’s asked that children be Baptized as soon after birth as possible. This ensures the child becoming of God’s graces and provides the first sacrament to the baby after birth. When an adult is baptized he or she undergoes preparation for the sacrament called the Catechumenate. The candidate for Baptism is called a Catechumen and should be properly initiated into the mystery of salvation and the practice of the Evangelical virtues.
