Saturday of the Eight Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

“Jesus said to them, I shall ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. Was John’s baptism of heavenly or of human origin? Answer me.’ They discussed this among themselves and said, if we say, ‘Of heavenly origin,’ he will say, ‘Then why did you not believe him?’” I think today Jesus wants to ask us the same question - do you believe that you were baptized by God or only by a priest or a deacon? You see, this is the definition of each sacrament. During each sacrament, we receive an invisible grace by a visible sign. So, God truly is present there, giving us His graces and blessings, making us a new creation, a holy people that belong to Him. Sadly, for some, the sacrament of baptism is only a tradition, a family celebration, or an occasion to get together and celebrate and take a picture. But it is more than that, much more. So again -- do you truly believe that it is from God, that God touched you with His grace during that sacrament?
