Sample text

Paul, there is a relation between the sphragis and the Holy Spirit ( Eph. 1:13), although the sacramental character of the sphragis is not yet made clear. This relation is found also in the Fathers, and this time in a context that is explicitly one of worship. So Cyril of Jerusalem reminds the baptized "how the seal (sphragis) of the communion of the Holy Spirit was given to them" ( XXXIII, 1056 B). So the theme of the sphragis presents an ambiguity: as an impression of the sign of the Cross, it is related to Christ Crucified, 25 but it is also related to the Holy Spirit.

Here we pass to a different theme. Christ is not only the Shepherd, He is also the King who calls men to join His forces. In giving their names, at the beginning of the ceremonies of Baptism, the candidates have answered this call and have enlisted: "The inscription of your name," writes Cyril of Jerusalem, "has taken place, and the call to enter the campaign" ( XXXIII, 333 A). The consignatio, then, shows our incorporation in the service of the king. Theodore of Mopsuestia connects this symbolism with that of the flock: "This signing, with which you are now marked, is the sign that you are now marked as a sheep of Christ's, as a soldier of the King of heaven .

In the fourth century, this theme assumes considerable importance in the catecheses preparatory to Baptism by Zeno, Bishop of Verona, written between 362 and 373: "Exult with joy, my brothers, in Christ, and all, inflamed with ardent longing, hasten to receive the heavenly gifts. The font, where we are born to eternal life, invites you by its healthful warmth. Our mother is eager to bring you into the world, but she is not in the least subject to the law which ruled over the child-bearing of your mothers.
