Baptism

Published on Jan 9th, 2015 by Parish Office | 0

Through Baptism we fulfill the commandment of Jesus Christ as stated in Matthew 28:18, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”

The Baptism of Christ is a fresco by the Italian Renaissance painter Pietro Perugino and his workshop, completed around 1482 in the Sistine Chapel, Rome.

“From the time of the apostles, becoming a Christian has been accomplished by a journey and initiation in several stages. This journey can be covered rapidly or slowly, but certain essential elements will always have to be present: proclamation of the Word, acceptance of the Gospel entailing conversion, profession of faith, Baptism itself, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Confirmation), and admission to Eucharistic communion.” CCC 1229
