For many their baptism was an event they attended, but do not have any recollections of because they were an infant at the time. They know it occurred because they were told so, have a photo or two, perhaps church documents or inscribed bible. In any event, it was “done”, and they feel confident they can attest to it. But what really took place on that occasion, from a theological and spiritual perspective? An amazing amount of divine grace and love surrounded that event; to where libraries are filled with books on the subject. For example, you were initiated, sealed, received the Holy Spirit, adopted, prayed over, cleansed of sin, illuminated with the light of Christ by a candle, welcomed, reborn, and, finally, given a name.
