BAPTISM OF THE LORD – 13TH JANUARY 2019
The call given to each of us at our Baptism is unique. At Baptism we were made 'priests, prophets and kings' as the Rite of Baptism reminds us. As we celebrate the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord this weekend, reflect on the call given to us at our baptism, no matter how long ago it was. As baptised Christians, we are called to spread the 'Good News' and grow in holiness. Let us pray today for the young members of our families and our congregations and our secondary schools: that they will live out this call in a radical way and respond to whatever the Lord calls them to, perhaps consecrated life or priesthood.

We pray for Jaia Baer, Ossie Fonseca, Mariano De Muri, Isidra Buenaventura, Petronila Larmar and all who have passed away recently.
