Baptism is a very important step to take and it needs to be thought about carefully, it means much more than a ceremony in church and perhaps at home afterwards. Being baptised means becoming a Christian and being a Christian is something that should influence the way you think, talk and your everyday behaviour.

The bible is so fundamental and central to the Second Vatican Council that it is impossible to do justice to this sweeping title in a short paper. The most important teachings of Vatican II are founded on the Bible, more directly than those of any previous ecumenical council. Of its four documents which bear the special title of ‘Constitution’, clearly the most fundamental one is Dei Verbum (hereafter DV), ‘the Word of God’, which expounds the Church’s faith in God’s revelation to humankind in the Bible, in Christ and in all the Church’s living tradition.

1322 The holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist.

1323 “At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet ‘in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'”135.
