Choose one of the following activities as a way to further
reflect on the Sunday readings:
At his Baptism, Jesus was publicly proclaimed God’s Son
and then filled with the Spirit. At that moment, he began
his life work of proclaiming the kingdom of God on earth.
At our baptism, we, too, were filled with the Spirit. How
are we called to proclaim the kingdom of God?
This week, come to church with your family and get some
holy water. When you get home, put it in a small bowl.
Begin a family ritual of beginning the day by making the
sign of the cross with holy water and recalling your
baptism. Check to see that your child knows how to make
the sign of the cross reverently.
How does your family help you better live the new life that has
been given to you at Baptism?
