Pope St. John Paul II was once asked what he considered the most important day of his life. How can you pick one when you are one of the greatest men of the century? He could have picked his birthday, the day of his priestly ordination, the day of his election as Pope, the day that Communism fell… but the day he picked? The day of his baptism.
It was at that moment that our lives were ransomed. If I had been a slave my whole life and was set free on a certain day, I would consider it the most important day of my life! And our baptisms rescued us from slavery, ignorance, lack of faith.
Do you know the day of your baptism? And would you consider it the most pivotal moment in your life — the day when your soul was filled with grace for the first time?
