New forum: the Seven Sacraments

Postby ianJM » Sat Oct 19, 2013 1:02 am

The Sacraments, as we all know "are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church. They are 'the masterworks of God' in the new and everlasting covenant (CCC1116)". They are what Christ instituted and provided for the life, health and growth of the Church and each of Her members, and I believe they deserve a section all of their own. I hope this also makes it easier in finding the most suitable forum to file your posts.

For those seeking to understand the Catholic Church, the Seven Sacraments are:

1. Baptism
2. Reconciliation (Confession)
3. Eucharist (Communion)
4. Confirmation
5. Matrimony (Marriage)
6. Holy Orders (Priesthood)
7. Anointing of the Sick (Last Rites or Extreme Unction)

But one of the seven sacraments that are a part of the Catholic faith is Baptism. This opportunity is one that not only holds importance in the life of the mother and father, but also in the life of the baby. To add meaning to this day, the child about to receive the sacrament of Baptism traditionally wears a white gown or suit. Christening gowns can be modern, depending on family traditions.

A Baptism is a baby's official welcome to the church. During the ceremony, the parents of the baby promise to bring up the child to adhere the faith and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Baptism calls for the child to be dressed in an all-white dress that stands for Christian dignity. However, it has to be bought well in advance of the day of the baptism.

Why is it important to buy the dress "well in advance", and how far in advance should that be?

All,

This is not a post which is inviting discussion. It is the announcement of the existence of a new forum where such discussions can occur. Please move the discussion of the Sacrament of Baptism there.

Thread Locked.
