Baptism | Physically Spiritual S2E5

Updated: Oct 21, 2021

If no one told you that you were Baptized, would you know you were? Maybe you were baptized as an adult, and some never have been baptized, but many were baptized as infants. What difference did this make in our lives? Did our parents take something from us by not waiting for us to choose? In this episode of Physically Spiritual we will explore how to live the Sacrament of Baptism.

Notes


Aquinas 101 on Baptism and Confirmation - https://youtu.be/LVXV0B26ABs

In the 10th minute, I mentioned Angus Barbieri’s 382 day fast - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angus_Barbieri's_fast

“Incorporated into Christ by Baptism, the person baptized is configured to Christ. Baptism seals the Christian with the indelible spiritual mark (character) of his belonging to Christ. No sin can erase this mark, even if sin prevents Baptism from bearing the fruits of salvation. Given once for all, Baptism cannot be repeated.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1272 - http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p2s2c1a1.htm
“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word." Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213
“By Baptism all sins are forgiven, original sin and all personal sins, as well as all punishment for sin. In those who have been reborn nothing remains that would impede their entry into the Kingdom of God, neither Adam's sin, nor personal sin, nor the consequences of sin, the gravest of which is separation from God.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1263
“Yet certain temporal consequences of sin remain in the baptized, such as suffering, illness, death, and such frailties inherent in life as weaknesses of character, and so on, as well as an inclination to sin that Tradition calls concupiscence, or metaphorically, "the tinder for sin" (fomes peccati); since concupiscence "is left for us to wrestle with, it cannot harm those who do not consent but manfully resist it by the grace of Jesus Christ." Indeed, "an athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules." Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1264

“Because the loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf. Look at Israel according to the flesh; are not those who eat the sacrifices participants in the altar?” 1 Cor 10: 17 - 18 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/1corinthians/10
“One bread; what is this one bread? The one body which we, being many, are. Remember that bread is not made from one grain, but from many. When you were being exorcised, it's as though you were being ground. When you were baptized it's as though you were mixed into dough. When you received the fire of the Holy Spirit, it's as though you were baked. Be what you can see, and receive what you are” St. Augustine, Sermon 272 (trans. Edmund Hill, O.P.) - https://stanselminstitute.org/files/Augustine,%20Sermon%20272.pdf
