Gospel Reflection

LUKE 3:15-16; 21-22
Today’s gospel reminds parents about Jesus baptism. It was rather very simple yet very dignified. This is one thing that parents must learn. Recognize the real meaning of the sacrament which is that God is so pleased with their child accepts the child as his own. As Luke’s gospel beautifully puts it, “You are my beloved Son.”
Above all, the parents must realize that the child is called by God to be his witness in a land where people are slowly going away from the Church. God’s dignity is shared wiath the child being baptized and the parents must nurture and explain this property to the child as he grows up. Instead of spending a lot during the baptism, why not save money for the future Christian education of the child.
RICE in Baptism:
R – Rebirth
I – initiation
C – Conversion
E – Empowerment
All these happen in the sacrament of baptism.
