This is a beautiful candle, decorated with the associated symbols, to celebrate and commemorate the special day of Baptism.
The Roman Catholic Church considers baptism, even for an infant, so important that “parents are obliged to see that their infants are baptised within the first few weeks” and, “if the infant is in danger of death, it is to be baptised without any delay.” It declares: “The practice of infant Baptism is an immemorial tradition of the Church.
There is explicit testimony to this practice from the second century on, and it is quite possible that, from the beginning of the apostolic preaching, when whole ‘households’ received baptism, infants may also have been baptised”.
It is also the introduction of the child/adult into the Church and the first of the seven Sacraments.
