What is essential in a Baptism?

The General Introduction to the Rites of Christian Initiation states:

1. The baptismal font, or the vessel in which on occasion the water is prepared for the celebration of the sacrament [baptism] should be very clean and attractive.

2. The water used in baptism should be true water and it should be clean.

3. Either the rite of immersion, which is more suitable as a symbol of participation in the death and resurrection of Christ, or the rite of infusion [pouring] may lawfully be used in the celebration of baptism.

4. The words for baptism in the Latin Church are: 'I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'

5. It is a very ancient custom of the Church that an adult is not admitted to baptism without a godparent.

6. In the baptism of children, the godparent(s)/proxies must be present.

7. In the case of baptism by immersion decency and decorum are to be kept present.

According to sacramental theologians, in administering the sacraments there must be a union of matter and form--in the case of Baptism union of the act of immersion or pouring of water and the words of Baptism. Together they constitute the sacramental sign.
