“By the power of the Holy Spirit give to this water the grace of your Son,

so that in the sacrament of baptism all those whom you have created in your likeness

may be cleansed from sin and rise to a new birth of innocence

 by water and the Holy Spirit.”

“I baptize you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son

and of the Holy Spirit.”

“You have become a new creation and have clothed yourself in Christ.

See in this white garment the outward sign of your Christian dignity.

With your family and friends to help you by word and example, bring that dignity unstained into the everlasting life of heaven.”
