Transcript of Things Used in Baptism

Things Used in Baptism Symbols of Baptism Water Learning Intentions What they are? Why they are used? 1. Identify and explain the things used in the
celebration of the sacrament of Baptism.

2. Work individually and collaboratively in pairs
and small groups to discuss the things used in
Baptism. How are they used? Did you know Three quarters of the
earth's surface is water. About 75% of your body is water. Water reminds us of life because everything and everyone needs water in order to live. In Baptism we use Water Water brings life and growth. Baptism makes God's gift
of life grow in us. Water also cleans. Baptism puts us in right
relationship with God. Cloth Did you know In ancient times people
used animal skins as clothes. As well as keeping us
warm, clothes protect
our bodies and our dignity. In Baptism we use White Clothing We wear special clothes for special occasions. For our Baptism Day, a special
white garment is put on us to show
our new life as followers of
Jesus and members of the Church. St Paul says,

"And when you were
baptised, it was as though
you had put on Christ
in the same way you put
on new clothes"
(Galatians 3:27). Light Did you know The sun is a source of
both heat and light. The Romans used
beeswax candles. We use candles for
all kinds of ceremonies. Candlelight helps to create
a calm atmosphere. In Baptism we use a
Baptismal Candle The Baptismal Candle is lit from the Easter candle. The Easter candle represents the Risen Jesus who said "I am the light of the world" (John 8:12). Jesus brings light to our lives
by telling us of God's love
and teaching us to love one another. Oil Did you know Ancient peoples used oil, mixed with
perfume, to anoint kings and leaders. Today people use scented oils for
massages and for making a room smell inviting. Rubbing oil on to our skin protects, soothes, strengthens and relaxes us. In Baptism we use Oil Before the Baptism the baby is anointed with blessed oil, call oil of catechumens. The priest prays that Christ will strengthen the baby with goodness. After the Baptism the baby is anointed with chrism, a sweet-smelling perfumed oil.

This reminds everyone of how God loves the baby.
