The first of the three sacraments of initiation, is also the first of the seven sacraments in the Catholic Church. Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water and in the word.” [CCC 1213]
Its signs are the pouring of water on the head while reciting the words of the trinitarian formula: “I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
