        Through the sacrament of baptism, a Catholic enters into the family of Christ and shares in His divine sonship as a true son or daughter of God. Baptism is no mere symbol, but a true transformation which allows us to enter into death with Christ, and rise with him to new life. After such transformation takes place, the Catholic must be a continuing member of the family of God by allowing Grace to work in his life. He must cooperate with God’s Grace by faithfully participating in the Sacraments of the Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation, and the one time sacrament of Confirmation. A faithful Catholic strives every day to give his entire life to Christ in thanksgiving and preparation for his heavenly home. By so doing, he is a living witness to Christ in thoughts and actions. A faithful Catholic is obedient to the Body of Christ which is the Church and God’s kingdom on earth. Through faith and works, the Catholic joins with the angels and saints in Heaven to glorify God.

        The following is the prayer we recite. It is called the Apostles Creed.

        1. I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
        2. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
        3. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
        4. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
        5. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again.
        6. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 7. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
        8. I believe in the Holy Spirit,
        9. the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints,
        10. the forgiveness of sins,
        11. the resurrection of the body,
        12. and the life everlasting.
        Amen.
