Lent 2018

Monday of Holy Week


On Saturday, new members of the Catholic family will be baptized during the Easter Vigil. Take time today to read about the Sacrament of Baptism.


"After being baptized, we acknowledge or receive a white garment to signify that we have risen with Christ. We receive a lighted candle, which symbolizes that we are a new creation, enlightened by Christ. We are now called to carry that light into the dark world to extend the light to others" (CCC, no. 1243).


Is there a baptized child in your life (your own son or daughter, sibling, niece or nephew, children of friends) you can pray in thanksgiving for today


Today we read this Mother's Reflection on Liturgy, which reflects on the Rite of Baptism through the eyes of one mother.
