The New Roman Rite of Infant Baptism

Fr Vincent Ryan, p24

Vincent Ryan expounds the content of the Ordo Baptismi Parvulorum (1969)/The Rite of Baptism for Children (1970) developed as a consequence of the Vatican II reforms as evidenced in the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy (1963). Ryan suggests that the Order is characterised by: 1) ‘greater community participation’ 2) a fuller provision for the Word of God, and; 3) ‘a stronger emphasis on the paschal mystery’. Ryan emphasises the recognition of the validity of a baptism conferred by a non-Roman Catholic minister.
