Renewal of Baptismal Promises
70. Renewal of Baptismal Promises (Votorum baptismalium renovatio)
A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful, who renew their baptismal
promises according to formula in use ; but
a plenary indulgence is granted, if this is done
- in the celebration of the Paschal Vigil or
- on the anniversary of one's baptism.
- I, N. N., who through the tender mercy of the Eternal Father was privileged to be
baptized "in the name of the Lord Jesus" (Acts 19, 5) and thus to share in the
dignity of his divine Sonship, wish now in the presence of this same loving Father and of
his only-begotten Son to renew in all sincerity the promises I solemnly made at the time
of my holy Baptism.
- I, therefore, now do once again renounce Satan; I renounce all his works; I renounce all
- I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus
Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was born into this world and who suffered and died for
my sins and rose again. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the
communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life
- Having been buried with Christ unto death and raised up with him unto a new life, I
promise to live no longer for myself or for that world which is the enemy of God but for
him who died for me and rose again, serving God, my heavenly Father, faithfully and unto
death in the holy Catholic Church.
- Taught by our Savior's command and formed by the word of God, I now dare to say:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our
trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
