Why is Baptism so Important?
” In Baptism, we receive a special gift from God called grace, which helps us to know God’s love for us and plan for our salvation.
God shows us His love through natural things; water, oil, and other people.
Since the beginning of the world, water, so humble and wonderful a creature, has been the source of life and fruitfulness.
Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation and the gateway to the other 6 sacraments.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church
All in the Family….
- The family of God becomes our family when we are baptized.
- Every family has a home. In the family of God, our home on earth is the Church. Jesus said,” For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20)
