Transcript of Catholic Signs and Symbols - Baptism

The Oil of Chrism
The Oil of Chrism is Greek for The Oil of Anointing (Chrism = anointing). The oil is smeared on the forehead and used to let God enter the body of the participant. The Oil of Chrism is also known to be sign of God's mercy.
The Sign of the Cross
Baptismal Certificate
Steps in Baptism
In Baptism, the priest will trace the sign of the cross on your forehead, you are then lowered into Holy Water by a priest, and the top of your head is dipped into it. Oil is then put on your forehead and chest, this is called the Anointing. Next is the Baptismal Promise, where the parents of the person stand around the baptismal font, (a large bowl - usually marble) and make promises for the person being baptized.

Baptismal Ceremony
Baptism is one of the Seven Sacraments that is sometimes called the 'first sacrament' and the 'door of sacraments'. It is frequently called the 'door of sacraments' because Baptism leads a person to many other ceremonies of Catholicism. Baptism usually occurs at a very young age, often a few months after birth, although it can happen at any age.
Catholic Signs and Symbols - Baptism
The importance of Baptism
Baptism marks the life of the start of a Catholic life. It prints a label in our heart that we forever belong to God. Early Catholics saw Baptism as a gift of the Holy Spirit, a time where one person was blessed to become a part of God's holy family.
The white garment that a child wears during Baptism represents the purity of the Holy Spirit. White also represents the sin of a persons soul being wiped away in Baptism.
The Baptismal Certificate is a certificate given to someone after they've been Baptized to show that they are a true child of God. Your Baptismal Register is signed by the participants parent and will then be recorded in the Parish Baptismal Register, where all recorded Baptisms are kept.

The Sign of the Cross is similar to Baptism itself - meaning that both of these mark you as a follower of God. The Sign of the Cross is important because it shows our faith in God, and it constantly reminds us of him.
