The contagious joy of baptism


Aleteia . | Abr 29, 2017

Never like now a beautiful scene of a baby, his family and the experience of faith is conquering smiles and tenderness in social networks: the baptism of little Gustavo, a Brazilian baby who literally “found grace” in the middle of baptismal font!

During the ritual of baptism by immersion, the celebrant priest immerses the baby three times in the baptismal font while pronouncing the formula “I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” After the first partial immersion, Gustavo releases an enormous and spontaneous laughter, of the type that only the babies manage to give, infecting the whole church with his joy.

To complete this true feast, the new baptized clap his hands together with the assembly, who applauded him by welcoming him as a Catholic! The contagious joy of baptism, in a video that will not leave you indifferent.
