Baptism makes us missionary disciples

  • 12 June 2018

Baptism makes us missionary disciples, endowed with many gifts and talents for the service of others in the name of the Lord.  If a person was baptized in infancy as I was, it is very easy to take for granted the wondrous gift bestowed by that sacrament.  Pope Francis wants us to be fully aware of what it means to be baptized, to rejoice in the gift, and to embrace completely the Christian way of living.  (Archbishop Smith, Pastoral Letter, September 14, 2017)
