"By receiving their Baptism, they are reborn as children of God, taking part in the filial relationship that Jesus has with the Father. This enables them to address God as 'Abba, meaning Father'.”

But the attention wasn't just on the newborns. The Pope also called on their parents, reminding them that by choosing to have their children baptized, they too become witnesses of their faith.

"It's the joy of knowing that they have received a great gift of God: faith. A gift that none of us truly merit. It's a free gift to which we have responded to with a 'yes'.

As far as the godparents, the Pope highlighted that they too have a great responsibility to educate and transmit the faith to the younger generation. Above everything else, by example.
