The implementation of the tasks entrusted to the Church is mainly in the conveyance of God’s Word and the sacraments. The command to baptize, contained in the pages of the Gospel, is fundamental for the Church of all time. Based on baptism for the other sacraments, baptism is the gateway to the Community Church, makes free from original sin and other offenses. Given such great generosity of God to man, ask for the right of the child for baptism. Already in the pages of the New Testament and then in the early centuries of church history we have traces of the practice of baptism of infants. A great role to play in such cases, the parents of the child and the person asked to serve as godparents. The parents are the child’s first educators. Their status in the Church is different. Some people can and are very good practice of religious life for posterity, others on the contrary: even though they have opened the way for the sacraments, rejected the possibility of using the source of grace through the routine of sin consists in creating a community of like marriage. Do these people are able to guarantee the development of the religious life of their children, to undertake what is the baptism ceremony? The answer is obvious.
