For believers, infant baptism has always been an important and touching stage in any newborn`s life. Baptism is one of the first sacraments, which is recognized by all Christian denominations. Only after the baptism, the Church takes the child into its ranks.
Despite the fact that the Catholic and Orthodox churches have some differences in the rite of baptism, a baby needs a christening towel, which has always been an integral symbol of this sacrament. The rite of baptism must be prepared in advance. A godfather brings a cross for a baby, and a godmother should care that a festive shirt and a christening towel be prepared in advance.
At our online store you can always buy christening towel of white color with embroidery. It must be remembered that the baptism day towel must be made exclusively of natural fabric, which can absorb moisture very well, because during this ritual a baby is first being dipped in water and then wrapped in christening blanket. Therefore, after such a bathing a child will feel comfortable as linen or cotton christening towel will ensure maximum baby comfort and warmth. Linen and cotton christening towels have a noble look, meeting all environmental requirements for baby` cloths.
The Orthodox Church permits baptizing people of any age. A person, who is being baptized, should have both a godmother and a godfather, who are responsible for the Christian education of their godson. During the rite of baptism a child is being dipped in water for three times, and a minister of the church reads the set of prayers. Water has always been a symbol of purification and life, so dipping an infant in water is a sacred act. After the rite has been finished, a baby is wrapped in a white christening towel. This color is a symbol of sanctity and purity of a baby.
In the Catholic Church a baby is baptized in the faith of parents and godparents. They must do everything to ensure that the child will be brought up a true Christian. Baptismal rite is carried by a bishop, a deacon or any baptized Catholic. During the rite, a baby is dipped in the baptismal font. After it, a baby is immediately wrapped in white christening towel so that a child gets warm. After a rite of baptism has been finished, a baby is waiting for the rite of Confirmation.
