From the Pastor

Love that Saves for Eternity (Part II of II )

01-20-2019Fr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Having your child baptized is what Catholic parents do for their child. Nurturing and raising your baptized child in the faith is also vital to the spiritual life of the child. The rite of baptism makes this important connection during the celebration of the sacrament when the parents of those being baptized are reminded that THEY assume the commitment to "training them in the practice of the faith". The parents and godparents are also reminded in part of the celebration with the words addressed to them: "on your part, you must make it your constant care to bring them up in the practice of the faith. See that the divine life which God gives them is kept safe from the poison of sin, to grow always stronger in their hearts. If your faith makes you ready to accept this responsibility... profess your faith in Christ Jesus. This is the faith of the Church. This is the faith in which these children are about to be baptized".
