Col 2: 6-15

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. 

For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have come to fullness in him, who is the head of every ruler and authority. In him also you were circumcised with a spiritual circumcision, by putting off the body of the flesh in the circumcision of Christ; when you were buried with him in baptism, you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.

And when you were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive together with him, when he forgave us all our trespasses, erasing the record that stood against us with its legal demands. He set this aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in it.

Celebrating baptism

Today, St. Paul reminds us of the most important part of our Christian lives: “when you were buried with Christ in baptism, you were also raised with him.” Do you know when you were baptized?  Do you celebrate the occasion?  Pope Francis says we should; he wants us to celebrate baptismal anniversaries like we do birthdays because the day of your baptism was the most important day of your life, for on that day you were joined to Jesus Christ for all eternity.

Take a moment today and give thanks for the gift of your baptism. If you don’t know when you were baptized, make it a project in the days to come. Find out the date of your baptism, put it on your calendar, and celebrate the day just like you would your birthday...even use it as an excuse for a little more cake in your life!

 —Fr. Adam Rosinski, SJ, is the Assistant Director and Promoter of Vocations for the USA East Province of the Society of Jesus.

 

 

Prayer

May all who are buried with Christ in the death of baptism rise also with him to newness of life.

—Rite of Baptism

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
