Baptism01-12-2020Fr. Larry Merta
This Sunday, as I offer mass, I will do so with added liturgy of infant baptism. Does the mass go slightly longer? Yes, but I do so not to inconveniently delay anyone. I just thought it would be good to remember what happened when the waters raced over our heads: Satan was put on notice that God's Divine Life of adoption that we call justifying grace now marked us, that we no longer suffered the curse of the Adam's original sin, that our practice of faith, hope and love were now possible, that we had Jesus officially as our Savior, that the Holy Spirit marvelously took up residence in His temple, (the human body), that we became members of the Catholic Church. Do you celebrate your baptismal day with all the honors and sweetness of your birthday? Well, you should. If you don't recall the date of your baptism, find your certificate and set all sorts of reminders to celebrate it this year. Being born into this world is not the same as being of water and the Spirit (John 3).READ MORE
