What is baptism for Catholic Christians

With baptism, Christians accept a new member into their denomination.

Baptism is a sacrament for Christians. This is what they call actions with which they show their great bond with God during important events. Baptism is also a very special event for all Christians.

A baptismal font with holy water belongs to every baptism. Usually it is in the church in the chancel. All those involved gather around the pool. Since the baptized are often babies or small children, their parents are part of them, as well as the godparents and either the pastor, the deacon or the deacon. You pour or rub some holy water on the forehead of the person to be baptized, put your hand on his head and say the words:

"I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."

Christians believe that the person to be baptized is now a child of God and is under his special protection.

Each person to be baptized receives a baptismal message and often a christening candle. The saying is a sentence from the Bible. He should accompany the person to be baptized through life. The person to be baptized can light the candle on special occasions. Then she reminds him of baptism, of celebration, and of the promise to live a life with God.
