Many of us, living on the edge of millenium, are baptised as most of those who lived before us during two thousand years. But what does it mean — to accept Sacrament of Baptism? Common people can hardly explain the essence and meaning of the first — and principal Sacrament of Christian Church. More likely we accept Baptism following family tradition but not our own decision.
This film, depicting an average St.Petersburg parish, explains a great significance of Baptism for babies and adults, its influence on a further and eternal life, shows the important role of godparents.
