A Joyous Welcome: The Baptism of Umma Azul - ReligiousLeftLaw.com:
by Prof. Charles Reid, St. Thomas Law School (MN)
Welcoming -- the sacrament of Baptism in the Catholic Church is the sacrament of welcoming. The child is presented to the Church, the community of believers, usually by the parents. The priest calls upon the parents, the godparents, and the entire congregation, to assume the solemn obligation of raising the child in the faith. And then the child is baptized, water poured over her head, as the priest pronounces the time-honored formula -- "in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit." - See more at: http://www.religiousleftlaw.com/2014/04/a-joyous-welcome-the-baptism-of-umma-azul.html#sthash.ApXDN16H.dpuf
