Becoming a Christian refers to the stages necessary to enter the Christian Community and its worship.
Tertullian used to say that “Christians aren’t born, rather they come to be.” Based on this, the Church organized a gradual and progressive path in order to be a Christian, called the initiation in the sense of vitally incorporating the mystery of Christ, both his death and resurrection, and in the life of the Church. Saint Peter, in the Sermon on the day of the Pentecost, (Hch. 2,37-38) drew out the synthesis, the structure that must have the beginning.
Whoever has heard and embraced the mystery of Christ, with the grace of the Holy Spirit, consciously and freely, searches for God and a path of faith and conversion. At the proper time and as a culmination of the Christian faith, he receives the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist, which in this Holy Cathedral are celebrated within the framework of the Easter Vigil, entering to form part of the body of Christ, which is the church.
