Memory –

I have been crucified with Christ.  It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.  And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.                                                       Galatians 2:20

 

Baptism 4

What does such baptizing with water indicate?  It indicates that the Old Adam in us should by daily contrition and repentance be drowned and die with all sins and evil desires, and that a new man should daily emerge and arise to live before God in righteousness and purity forever.

Where is this written?  St. Paul writes in Romans chapter six: “We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.’ [Romans 6:4]

Thank you to those who have already sent in baby pictures.  For the others, please gather about 5-6 baby pictures of your son or daughter (birth to 3 or 4 years old).  Please keep them a surprise from your 8th grader!
