I can’t help but mention scripture here and how baptism relates to it…
I was baptized about a week by pouring over my head in a baptismal font after I was born in 1960, so pre Vat II… My mother reported that she thought it was hard for her so early after delivery to attend to the matter of baptism as she was just recovering from childbirth and I was number 9 so she had more at home…, but I think that it was rather cool that it is similar to the Mosaic law to be brought to the temple for circumcision or given to God, just as my parents had given me to God on day 8.
All of that is really cool…
Genesis 17: 12 For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner–those who are not your offspring.
Leviticus 12: 3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah,
On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.
11 In him also you were circumcised with a spiritual circumcision,[a] by putting off the body of the flesh in the circumcision of Christ; 12 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. 13 And when you were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God** made you[c] alive together with him, when he forgave us all our trespasses,
Do the same with your cattle and your sheep. Let them stay with their mothers for seven days, but give them to me on the eighth day.
So mom, I am truly sorry cause I know it was tough on you, but I like that you did give us to God by having us baptized on the eighth day…
