Summary
Through our Baptism, we are made into a new
creation. Christ had to be sacrificed and to
suffer his Passion in order to free us from
death and the slavery of sin, washing us clean in
the waters of Baptism. Because of his love and
everlasting covenant, he builds up the Church,
which is sustained by the Eucharist and the Word.
In order to guide our ways, he gives the Spirit
of Christ, putting in us a new heart and a new
spirit, united under Gods love.

    (future),ethical action (present)

  • Saved according to ways in which we apply the
    means of salvation

Gospel Christ is risen!

  • Conform our lives to that of the risen
    Christ

    definitive life
