During his general audience, Pope Francis devoted his reflections to the sacrament of Baptism, stating that it opens the door to a journey of faith, and helps to sustain us along the way.
"This sacrament constitutes a true immersion in the death of Christ to rise with him in a new life. It is a bath of regeneration by water and the Spirit and that illuminates us with the grace of Christ," the Pope expressed in his Nov. 13 address.
The pontiff offered his words to the thousands of pilgrims present in Saint Peter's Square for his general audience earlier this morning.
"Dear brothers and sister," he began, "I would like to continue our catechesis on the Creed by turning to the Sacrament of Baptism."
