Christening is the most important sacrament for every Christian. This rite recognized and practiced by absolutely all faiths, and its essence lies in the fact that from this moment a person is under the protection of God. At the time of christening, each newly Christian receives a special name, as well as a guardian angel, who throughout his life will protect him from various temptations and sin.
Spiritual birth necessarily implies the giving of a silver cross. Тhis is a symbol of faith that should remain with a person all his life, from birth to death. That is why many priests recommend buying silver crosses – they are not only beautiful and high-quality, but also incredibly durable.
