The Baptism of the Lord

Today at Mass, Fr. gave a little sermon. He’s a baby priest, newly ordained. I love this guy. He’s joyful and holy – a knockout combination. In his sermon for this feast of Our Lord’s Baptism he mentioned that each of us should celebrate our own baptismal day because it was the most important day of our lives. He also assumed that most of us don’t know much about that day.

Fortunately, yours truly knows all about it. January 15, 1978. I became a Christian. It was Super Bowl Sunday. My twin sister and I were robed in white. Unfortunately the Cowboys won. Oh well, at least I was received into the Church.

If you don’t know the exact date, I encourage you to find out. Find out and then celebrate. This Sunday I will do just that.

God bless us and the Virgin protect us!
