Jesus did not have to be baptized, because he was without sin, but by doing so himself, he showed us the way. “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” said Peter. Acts 2:37-39
At our baptism, we were made adopted sons and daughters of God. We were also made members of the Church. If you don’t know the date of your baptism, look it up (if possible), and celebrate! Do the same for your children. Celebrate their birth into the Church the same as you celebrate their birth into this world! This will send them an important message, even if unspoken – that being made an adopted son/daughter of God is very important to you – that FAITH is paramount! Happy Feast Day!
