Is my baptism gone?

Hi. A quick question: what happens to one’s baptism (or the grace received at baptism) after one commits sin? Is the grace received at the sacrament of Confession a replacement or a replenishment of baptismal grace? In other words, do I still have a baptism after sin and the confession of those sins?


Baptism can never be removed, ever. No matter what. No matter what others may insist with hair dryers and all.

Baptism not only fills you with grace, it enables you to receive further grace from the other Sacraments. So even if sin loses you grace, you can now fill yourself up again with grace through the other Sacraments like Confession and Communion.
