No matter when we received our first sacrament, however, it’s important that we as stewards recognize its significance.
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI believes that being baptized means that our personal story is submerged in the stream of God’s love.
“Our life,” he said, “now belongs to Christ, and no longer to ourselves. At his side and, indeed, drawn up in his love, we are freed from fear. He enfolds us and carries us wherever we may go — he who is Life itself.”
This grace-filled gift of baptism, then, will help us more fully live our lives as disciples and allow us to more faithfully follow Christ’s teachings.
