Baptismal Commitment

Together with the lighting of the candle is the Renewal of the Baptismal Promises/Vows made by the Godparents of the Child.

Renewal of Baptismal Promises

  1. Do you reject Satan?
    R. I do.
    V. And all his works?
    R. I do.
    V. And all his empty promises?
    R. I do.
    V. Do you believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth?
    R. I do.
    V. Do you believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary was crucified, died, and was buried, rose from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father?
    R. I do.
    V. Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting?
    R. I do.
    V. God, the all-powerful Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has given us a new birth by water and the Holy Spirit, and forgiven all our sins. May he also keep us faithful to our Lord Jesus Christ for ever and ever.
    R. Amen.

Taking into account the different symbols used in baptism and our call through it to be holy, to be of mission and be with others, COMPOSE three to five WELL-THOUGHT-OUT statements of your OWN Baptismal Commitment. After composing as much as you can, reflect prayerfully to this question: How would you truly live out your baptismal promises today?
