The Sacraments - Baptism
Baptism is a true Sacrament instituted by Jesus Christ.
The materia remota of the Sacrament of Baptism is true and natural water.
Baptism confers the grace of justification.
Baptism effects the remission of all punishments of sin, both eternal and temporal.
Even if it be unworthily received, valid Baptism imprints on the soul of the recipient an indelible spiritual mark, the Baptismal Character, and for this reason, the Sacrament cannot be repeated.
Baptism by water (Baptismus fluminis) is, since the promulgation of the Gospel, necessary for all men without exception for salvation.
Baptism can be validly administered by anyone.
Baptism can be received by any person in the wayfaring state who is not already baptized.
The Baptism of young children is valid and licit.
