Disciples and Stewards #12 – Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism begins our journey of discipleship. Through water and the Holy Spirit, we are buried with Christ in His Crucifixion and reborn as God’s own children. The Sacrament of Baptism is so powerful that it can never be repeated and leaves us forever changed. Made new.

Most of us were baptized as babies, so we should stop and think about the tremendous gift we have been given. Cultivating the graces we received in Baptism is a lifelong process of growing in faith, hope, love, and holiness. One of our primary missions as Catholics is to take this gift of Baptism and give it away to everyone we can.

Disciples and Stewards  is a series of short weekly meditations designed with Church Bulletins in mind. If you would like to feature Disciples and Stewards in your bulletin, please contact the Almoner at nathan@thealmoner.com.
