Scripture quote appropriate for baptism : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread

I'm creating an invitation fot the baptismal ceremony of my son. I would like to include a very short, but appropriate quotation from the Bible on baptism (something about welcoming an infant to the Church and the teaching of Christ.)

Or, an appropriate prayer would also do.

Can anyone help?

There are many good Scripture quotes for Baptism.

John 3:5 Jesus Answered: Amen, amen I say to you, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.

Romans 6:4 For we were buried with Him by means of Baptism into death,in order that, just as Christ has arisen from the dead... so we may also walk in newness of life.

Lord, Surround this child with goodness. Lead him in Your light each day. Let him walk the path You've chosen. Guide his steps along the way. Teach him to trust Your wisdom and obey Your loving plan. Keep him from all harm. Protect him as he grows to be a man.

Dear Xandria: A lovely touch might be to have a little graphic representation of the Baptism of Our Lord by John Baptist in the waters of the Jordan. Place it in the frame of your invitation, as a sign of your baby's new life in Christ? May God bless you and him!
