Abstract

This paper is a study on the prayer texts and the ritual behaviors of both Rites of Initiation and Monastic Profession. The Rite of Initiation and the Rite of Monastic Profession are both rites of incorporation to a community. The prayer texts in both rites themselves reveal a theology that speaks much about the journey to the Christian life. They reveal how the gift of conversion and how the process of incorporation into the church or monastic community become all works of God, through the Holy Spirit, and without Him nothing is possible. These assertions will be established through a closer look on the prayers of both rites.
