The symbolism of water signifies the Holy Spirit’s action in Baptism…[J]ust as the gestation of our first birth took place in water, so the water of Baptism truly signifies that our birth into the divine life is given to us in the Holy Spirit” (CCC 694).   Water is the most important element in nature: it is necessary for all life, it was the second thing God created, after light. It is the element most of us naturally love the most.   30

He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, “Out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.”’ Now this he said about the Spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive” (John 7:37-39). 31

In the form of tongues ‘as of fire,’ the Holy Spirit rests on the disciples on the morning of Pentecost…”40 (Acts 2:3-4; CCC 696).   34
    34. 34. 24 And in the morning watch the LORD in the pillar of fire and of cloud looked down on the Egyptian forces and threw the Egyptian forces into a panic, 25 clogging[c] their chariot wheels so that they drove heavily. (Exodus 14:24 )   35
