After Baptism, We are Never Alone Again

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Trinity in unity. Who taught you how to make the sign of the cross “In the name of the Father, and of the Son,and of the Holy Spirit”? This was a very important lesson because it is the most basic truth of the Faith.

Through the sacrament of Baptism we are inserted into communion with the Blessed Trinity. As Pope Benedict reminded us when he baptized children on the feast of the Baptism of the Lord: “After Baptism we are never alone again.” We are connected. We are united to something bigger—the Trinity, God Himself. The Blessed Trinity

On Memorial Day we honor those who sacrificed for the good of the community. Especially the fallen in war. Each death on the battle field is a great loss to family, friends the civil and Church community.

But each is also a gift of self that spiritually enriches all of us. As we visit their resting place and decorate them with signs of life—flowers and greenery let us commend them to God’s loving care—“In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit“.

God bless you!

Fr. Dave
