Baptism Gold Medal - Medalla de Bautizo Oro 14k - 14 K Gold Medal
The Sacrament of Baptism is also known as “The Door of the Church” since it is a rite of initiation in which the baptized person becomes a full member of the Catholic Church. It is the first of the three Sacraments of Initiation, the other are two are Confirmation and Holy Communion. Baptism cleanses a person from the guilt and punishment of original sin and is therefore necessary for salvation; it is the mark of a Christian on a person’s soul because it incorporates a person into the life of Christ which is continued in the Church. Baptism is most commonly received by infants, though it can also be received by adults.
When an infant is baptized they must have a godparent (sponser) which is chosen by the parents, usually infants get one from each gender and are often from both sides of the family. A god parent’s role in a child’s life is significant because he/she is a role model to that child which means they must give a good example by regularly and faithfully practicing the Catholic religion.
On the day the infant is baptized godparents usually present the child with a gift. A gold medal or scapular (escapulario) is given to the infant with an image of the Sacrament of Baptism, the Virgin Mary or a Saint engraved on it as a reminder of his/her Catholic faith and initiation into the Church. It is a symbol of hope and God’s embrace, as the child begins his/her journey into the Christian life of the Catholic Church and the preparation for the remaining sacraments of initiation: Confirmation and Communion.
