The Graces of Baptism
Baptism is one of the Sacraments of Initiation through which we become members of the Church, the Body of Christ. The sign of Baptism is the pouring of water, which is used to cleanse us of all sin, Original and actual. This sacrament is received once.
Jesus answered, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.
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, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.
