A homily by Fr Stephen Wang.
I’d definitely say that, until recently, I’ve rather taken the fact of my baptism for granted – it’s something that happens and, unlike Jesus (or any adult who is baptised), children baptised in their full innocence don’t understand or even remember that they’re being initiated into the family of God. Regardless of this, they’re blessed by God and are saved from the moment they’re conceived.
Of course, it’s important to remember this, which is why this homily is meaningful to me. Baptism gives even those who have not yet learnt about God the welcome into His arms.
Let us all today give a thought to our baptisms and what they mean to us.
