“Baptism is mystical participation of man in the death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through the image of death – in the baptismal bath – we are united to the risen Lord. With His death he conquers our death; with His Resurrection He gives us the pledge of our resurrection; with His presence within us, with the Holy Spirit, he grants us remission of sins and power to defeat every evil.” (A. Schmemann)
