What happens in Baptism?

Mission Lab

In Baptism, God unites our soul to Himself. God’s love, the Holy Spirit, is poured into our soul. Our soul is lifted to a new kind of life which is a sharing in God’s own life.

Although Baptism gives us the supernatural gift of sanctifying grace, it does not bring us some special gifts which Adam and Eve alone received, such as freedom from suffering and death. But God has restored to us the really important gift of the supernatural life of grace. This gift was given to us through the sufferings and Death of His Son.
