BAPTISM - KRSTENJE

1213 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."

from the Catechism of the Catholic Church

1213 Sveti krst je temelj cijeloga kršćanskog života, ulaz u život Duha (vitae spiritualis ianua) i vrata koja otvaraju pristup drugim sakramentima. Po krštenju smo oslobođeni od grijeha i nanovo rođeni kao sinovi Božji, postajemo Kristovi udovi i pritjelovljeni smo Crkvi te bivamo dionici njezina poslanja: "Krštenje je sakrament preporođenja vodom i riječju".
