Baptism Symbolic Actions and Words
And What Happens Water cleansing and life-giving water is vital for human life ex)Jesus was baptized in the water of the Jordan River. Later, Jesus would refer to the life he offers people as "the living water." Baptism: to "dip" into the water People are plunged into the water to symbolize their being cleansed of sin and their dying to an old way of life.Their coming up again would show that they were rising to a new life, a new identity, in Christ. Oil "Healing, strengthening, and being chosen" Ex)During the Roman Empire, gladiators and soldiers prepared for battle by covering their bodies with oil for protection against abrasions and infections. Oil was used in ancient times for anointing a person as royalty.
The title Christ means the "the Anointed One." Anointing with oil on the breast or both hands occurs before the water ritual of Baptsim.
It symbolizes asking God for strength for the person. The annointing of the new Christian on the crown of the head with oil, which takes places after the water ritual. symbolizes being chosen and annointed as Christ was chosen, to share in his risen life and to receive the Spirit through him. White Garment Becoming a new creation To symbolize the radical newness of a life in Christ, of being "clothed in Christ," the baptized individual receives a white or new garment or a white cloth to wear after the water ritual. What's the bibical basis of Baptsim? Baptsim celebrates the good news that God takes the initiative with us human beings. Original sin, which was human being's doing, not God's, disrupted the harmonious relationship that was intended to exist between God and human-kind The Son of God, Jesus Christ, was sent to Earth to restore that relationship, to free human beings from the weight of sin Baptsim takes away original sin, forgives all personal sins and the punishment due to them, and gives grace Baptism being welcomed into the community of Jesus, the church beginning a lifelong conversion, turning away from sin to embrace the Christian way of life being reborn to a new identity as a son or a daughter of God sharing in the mission of Jesus and adopting it as one's own life purpose receiving the gift of the Spirit of Jesus that enables the Christian to share in God's life of love What does Baptsim celebrate? 1281: Those who die for the faith, those who are catechumens, and all those who, without knowing of the Church but acting under the inspiration of grace, seek God sincerely and strive to fulfill his will, can be saved even if they have not been baptized (Catechism) 1277: Baptism is birth into the new life in Christ. In accordance with the Lord's will, it is necessary for salvation, as is the Church herself, which we enter by Baptism. (Catechism) 1280:Baptism imprints on the soul an indelible spiritual sign, the character, which consecrates thebaptized person for Christian worship. Because of the character Baptism cannot be repeated (Catechism) Youth Update Article: Baptism: First But Forever

-Baptism is celebrated in hopes that you will better understand what it means to say you were plunged into the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

-Your parents, godparents, and parish community chose the most important thing of all for you:Baptism. They marked the name of Jesus Christ on your forehead forever, claiming you for Christ. This marking is permanent, unerasable. They chose this without your approval or consent. -After fully initiated the person is now ready to go forth and proclaim your faith to the world. Baptism Video Clip: -“Through the baptismal waters we began our relationship with the Lord and his body the church.” -“Sponsors are by our sides and are like bridges to welcome us to the community of faith.” -No private relationship, but hand of God claims us for God in, with or through, freedom from sin and life in the Spirit.

Stoutzenberger, Joseph. "Celebrating Sacraments." Saint Mary's Press. Winona, MN. 2000. Print. 144-47. History of Baptism Jesus was the first to be"baptized" and later his apostles were too by the Holy Spirt.
The apostles went on after Jesus's Ascension, to baptize and convert others.
The apostles baptized these new followers of Jesus with water to represent the recieving of the Holy Spirt as they did at Pentecost.
Illegal to be Christian "In the early second through fourth and fifth centuries, baptismal preparation called catechumenate developed,"(Stoutzenberger 145). It was against the law to be considered Christian, and if you decided to become part of the faith you had to keep it a secret. If a person wished to be Christian they would participate in a two-to-three year "class."
Forty days before the final step at Easter Vigil, a person took part in a preparation that consisted of "intensive instruction, prayer, fasting, and liturgies involving the group of candiates [and sponsers] lead by the bishop," (Stoutzenberger 145). Changes in the Ritual Symbolic Meanings: Other Changes: In the beginning of the mass, canidates faced the West and denined Satan and darkness.
Then they would face the East showing their commitment to God

East represented light and new life. Men and women were separated during this ritual.
After the blessing in the water, people were led into the sacrament know today as, Eucharist.
Also, the canidates had to enroll in the mystagogia, which was a period where they would learn more about the mysteries of faith, after the Easter Vigil mass. The church also realized that there were so many converting to Christianity and not enough bishops to perform the rite of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation at once that they decided to break the sacraments up. Now the bishops perform the rite of Confirmation and priests are able to perform Baptism and Eucharist.
