Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

“The celebration of the rite of election which usually coincides with the opening of Lent, also marks the beginning of the period of final, more intense preparation for the sacraments of initiation, during which the elect will be encouraged to follow Christ with greater generosity.” Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults #105

 “This step is called election because the acceptance made by the Church is founded on the election by God, in whose name the Church acts.” RCIA #106
