THE LIGHTING OF THE BAPTISM CANDLE: A typical Catholic Rite of Baptism is as follows:
RECEPTION OF THE CHILD
CELEBRATION OF GOD’S WORD
Scriptural Readings and Homily
Prayer of Exorcism and Anointing Before Baptism
CELEBRATION OF THE SACRAMENT
Blessing and Invocation of God over Baptismal Water
Renunciation of Sin and Profession of Faith
Anointing with Chrism
The celebrant takes the Easter (Paschal) candle and says:
Receive the light of Christ.
Someone from the family (such as the father or godfather) lights the child’s candle from the Easter candle.
The celebrant then says:
Parents and godparents, this light is entrusted to you to be kept burning brightly. This child of yours has been enlightened by Christ. He (she) is to walk always as a child of the light. May he (she) keep the flame of faith alive in his (her) heart. When the Lord comes, may he (she) go out to meet him with all the saints in the heavenly kingdom.
Ephphetha or Prayer over Ears and Mouth (optional)
CONCLUSION OF THE RITE
Next there is a procession to the altar, unless the baptism was performed in the sanctuary. The lighted candle is carried for the child.
