Born, & Reborn

Our little Abigail was baptized today. As Catholics, we believe that if the transformation into a Christian happens at a single moment (and it does), that moment is baptism. The Catechism states (1213):

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.

So she has had the stain of original sin removed, and Abigail is now the holiest person in our home. It now falls to us as parents to nurture that new start and cause her to grow in the faith. What a task! What a joy!
