Baptism matters

1 thought on “Baptism matters”

  1. I was at our Diocesan RCIA retreat this past weekend and experienced the same sense of Baptismal inspiration that you write about, albeit, on a more provincial way. It seems in all such gatherings, the Holy Spirit is so actively present that everyone comes away having been blessed in particular ways. I am anxious to meet in our RCIA session today to hear from the others who attended the retreat and hear how they might have realized something similar.

    As you point out, Baptism is truly a calling, first to a new life (and identity) in Christ, and as the Catechism tells us, therefore, members of the Royal Priesthood. I have explained in our PSR and RCIA classes that we can think of all the Sacraments as being vocational. And yes, as you report, the visible Body of Christ in these gatherings is the evidence of God’s people answering that call.

    The only other thing I can add is the special blessing you received by having Bishop Robert Barron speak to all of you. God bless you in your work.
