Notes: This work is listed twice in the CPG, once wrongly under 4331 as a part of Ad illimunandos catecheses 1-2, and the second time under 4464. This is the second sermon in a series of baptismal instructions, but it does not belong to the same series as the 1st Baptismal Instruction to Catechumens. There are no other extant sermons from this series. In the link to the Greek text found in the PG, this homily begins at the very bottom of page 7.
