Thought of the Day April 14, 2023 Renewal of our baptismal promises

By 10:00 AM

 On Easter we had the opportunity to renew our baptismal promises. Listen to the words of St. Peter in his First Letter: "You are now saved by a baptismal bath which corresponds to this exactly. This baptism is no removal of physical stain, but the pledge to God of an irreproachable conscience through the resurrection of Jesus Christ." When we renew our baptismal promises we are pledging to God that we will live a life worthy of the grace of salvation he has given us in Jesus, our Lord and Savior. We have been saved by the death and resurrection of Jesus; we are being saved by living as fully possible the new life given us in the Spirit. This should not only be a yearly renewal, but a daily one, so that we will never forget the mercy of God.
