Today (August 20) is the anniversary of my baptism. I have no idea whether my baptismal candle and garment are still around, but I do know that the grace of my baptism is still with me. What have I been doing all these years with my baptismal grace? What am I doing with this precious gift called Christian life? My life is God is a great gift requiring a great response. Am I up to the task of living my life of grace?
