CREDO 15: Baptism and Confirmation

Updated: Feb 15, 2019

What is Confirmation anyway?

  • Fr. John Muir explains how Confirmation completes Baptism.

When should Christians be baptized?

  • Church Fathers on Infant Baptism

  • “He [Jesus] came to save all through himself; all, I say, who through him are reborn in God: infants, and children, and youths, and old men. Therefore he passed through every age, becoming an infant for infants, sanctifying infants; a child for children, sanctifying those who are of that age . . . [so that] he might be the perfect teacher in all things, perfect not only in respect to the setting forth of truth, perfect also in respect to relative age.” -St. Irenaeus

  • “Baptize first the children, and if they can speak for themselves let them do so. Otherwise, let their parents or other relatives speak for them.” -St. Hippolytus
