The Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord
Today the Church celebrates the Baptism of Christ by his cousin John the Baptist.
Check out the words of Pope Benedict here:
"In baptism, the Holy Father said that the tiny human beings receive a new life, a life of grace that renders them capable of entering into a personal relationship with the Creator, forever, for all eternity. Unfortunately man is capable of extinguishing this new life through our sin, reducing it to a situation that Sacred Scripture calls a “second death.”
