Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE CHANGE OF WORDS
IN THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM.


Q. 1. I heard that two words were changed in the Sacrament of Baptism by Pope Benedict XVI before his retirement. What are those words and why was the change done?

A. 1. Indeed, at the end of the Rite of reception in the Rite of Baptism of Children, Pope Benedict XVI degreed the change of two words.

The 1969 Rite for the Baptism of Children stated "The Christian community welcomes you with great joy." The words "Christian Community" is a term that also signifies the individual local communities or non-Catholic confessions, like the Protestants.

To reflect that it is the Mother Church speaking, the words "Christian community" were changed to the "Church of God." Accordingly, the new words are "The Church of God welcomes you with great joy."
