Invalid Baptism – Example
Tags : Baptism, Humor, Nacho Libre
Baptism conferred in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit conforms to the command of the Lord found at the end of Matthew’s Gospel: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt 28:19). The Church has no right to change what Christ himself has instituted. Therefore, any Baptism is invalid when it does not contain the invocation of the Most Holy Trinity, with the distinct expression of the three Persons with their respective names. Throughout the ages, the Magisterium of the Church has repeatedly taught that Christian Baptism is administered in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. There is no need here to compile a complete list of the relevant magisterial documents; it may suffice to cite some of the more notable ones: the Tomus Damasi (382), the decretals Desiderabilem mihi of Pope Saint Gregory II (726) and Sacris liminibus of Pope Saint Zacharias (748), the chapter De fide catholica of the Fourth Lateran Council (1215), the constitution Fidei catholicae of the Council of Vienne (1312), the bull Exsultate Deo of the Council of Florence (1439), the decree De sacramentis of the Council of Trent (1547). The liturgical documents on the Rite of Baptism do not offer alternatives to the terms Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thought you might like to know!
