Baptism is Not the End of the Journey
Lent has always been a baptismal season, for example, we are reminded to pray for those who will be baptized at the Easter Vigil. But it is also a season to remember that we continue to live our baptismal promises made long ago. Conversion is on-going; deepening our faith is a perennial project, a daily task. That’s true for the catechumens and just as true for us who were baptized as infants. At baptism we heard “Receive the light of Christ.” Have we kept the flame burning? Are we lights leading the way to Christ? Are we living our baptismal commitment? Good questions for Lenten meditations.
