The sign of the Cross
4
  • At the door, the priest asks the parents and
    God-parents if they are willing to bring up the
    child as a Christian. When they say 'Yes' the
    priest welcomes and names the child and says, "I
    claim you for Christ our Saviour by the Sign of
    his Cross".
  • The priest then traces the sign of the cross on
    the child's forehead and the parents and
    God-parents do the same. The sign of the cross is
    a symbol that the child now belongs to God.

5
  • PRAYERS
  • After a reading from the Gospel, there are
    prayers. The prayers are for the baby and for the
    parents and God-parents to help them in their job
    of bringing up the child.

6
OIL
  • Oil of catechumens-strength and protection
  • Oil of Chrism this is olive oil mixed with
    balsam, a sweet-smelling perfume. The candidate
    is crowned as a new Christian. It is used to
    anoint Kings and Queens
  • Chrism is also used at confirmation, another
    sacrament of initiation.

7
Oil
  • The child is anointed with holy oil twice during
    baptism.
  • By using oil, the church dramatises its prayer
    that this child will be strengthened by God and
    by the prayer of the whole community.

8
Anointing
  • The cross is traced upon the child's tiny
    forehead, to mark him out for Gods service.
  • The oil of catechumens is a sign of strength and
    healing.

9
Promises are made
10
Water
  • Water This is for cleansing and is a sign that
    our sins are washed away..

11
WATER
  • The water used in Baptism reflects 3 aspects of
    belief
  • Cleansing the washing away of sins
  • Death to die a way of life that is not
    pleasing to God
  • New Life living a life pleasing to God
  • It is poured 3 times during the ceremony

12
  • Baptism is the rite by which a baby or adult is
    welcomed into the Catholic faith.
  • The use of water is symbolic of belonging to the
    family of God.

13
A name is given
14
White Garment
  • The baby is clothed with a white garment, often a
    shawl, as a sign of being clothed in Christ.

15
White Garment
  • This garment is a relic of the new clothes worn
    by Christians after baptism in the first
    centuries. It is a sign of innocence and the new
    life or resurrection.

16
CANDLE
  • The candle is lit from the Paschal candle
  • Receive the light of Christ
  • Jesus is the light of the world
  • It is entrusted to the parents and godparents to
    keep the flame of faith alive in his/her heart.

17
Light
  • The candle symbolises Christ - The Light of the
    World. The baptismal candle is lit from the
    Easter candle, which stands near the altar at
    Easter as a sign of the risen Christ. The
    baptismal candle reminds us that the light of
    Christ has entered the child's life and its
    flame symbolises the flame of faith which will
    burn through the life of the child.

18
Blessings
  • At the end, the Lord's prayer is said. Then the
    priest blesses the mother and father and all the
    people in the church.

19
  • Remember that symbols can be objects, words and
    actions.
  • Remember the symbols representing human needs
    that you have explored
