“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Colossians 2:9,12

TODAY’S WORD…

.

In Christ lives the fullness of Divinity,

and in Him you too find your own fulfilment.

.

You have been buried with Him, when you were baptised;

and by baptism, too, you have been raised up with Him through your belief in the power of God who raised Him from the dead.

.

– Colossians 2:9,12 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

In Christ lives the fullness of Divinity.

The union of Christ’s human nature with His divine nature

is not just something which lasts for a while; it is permanent.

.

And, where the Son is present,

so are the Father and the Holy Spirit

– that is the fullness of Divinity.

Always and in every circumstance,

where one divine Person is present

the other two Persons are also present.

.

You have been buried with Him, when you were baptised;

and by baptism, too, you have been raised up with Him

"By the sacrament of Baptism,

whenever it is properly conferred in the way the Lord determined

and received with the proper dispositions of soul,

man becomes truly incorporated into the crucified and glorified Christ

and is reborn to a sharing of the divine life.” (Vatican II)

.

To be baptised…is to be buried – a sure sign that you have died to sin.

To be baptised…is to be resurrected – to a new life; to the life of grace.

By the Sacrament of Baptism

we are associated with Christ’s death and burial

so as to be able to rise with Him. Amen!

.

QUOTE…

.

“Christ by His resurrection signified our new life,

which was reborn out of the old death which submerged us in sin.

This is what is brought about in us by the great Sacrament of Baptism:

all those who receive this grace die to sin […]

and are reborn to the new life.”

.

– St. Augustine

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Jesus, my Lord, in You I live and have my being.

In You I find my fulfilment!
