Baptism: The Sacrament of New Life

As the Sacrament of new life, Baptism is a central theme in Easter. During this Easter season, consider your own Baptismal vows and how they might bring new life to you and to the church.

Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers? Will you persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?

Will you proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ? Will you seek to serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself? Greetings from Mother Lisa Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?
