Baptism is the door to life and the kingdom of God. Christ offered this first sacrament of the new law to all that they might have eternal life. He entrusted this sacrament and the gospel to his Church when he told his apostles: ‘Go, make disciples of all nations, and Baptise them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.’ It is the role of the father and mother, accompanied by the Godparents, to present their child to the Church for Baptism.
