A Baptism Sourcebook
Though a one-time event,
baptism is a lifelong project. This sourcebook contains a wealth of text
gathered for reading and reflection by all those baptised.
Use this book in a
variety of ways:
- To explore the enormous richness of the symbols and gestures of your own
- As a way to pray for those who will be baptised as infants or adults.
- As an inspiration for homilies and liturgy preparation.
- As a gift to someone newly baptised or to their godparent or sponsor.
A flood of texts gathered
for pondering by all the baptised. Taken from prose, poetry, hymnody, scripture
and liturgical and patristic texts, this collection unfolds the mystery of
Baptism as an event that extends into every moment of life. Section titles suggest
the richness of symbols and gestures of christening: election, faith and creed,
water, naming, godparents, anointing, dressing, light, festivity and mission.
