Our Baptism : Thought for the day

God is the giver of all life, human and divine.
May he bless the father of this child.
He and his wife will be the first teachers of their child in the ways of faith.
May they be also the best of teachers,
bearing witness to the faith by what they say and do,
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

By God’s gift, through water and the Holy Spirit,
we are reborn to everlasting life.
In his goodness,
may he continue to pour out his blessings upon these sons and daughters of his.
May he make them always, wherever they may be,
faithful members of his holy people.
May he send his peace upon all who are gathered here,
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

May God the almighty Father, who filled the world with joy by giving us his only Son, bless this newly-baptized child. May he (she) grow to be more fully like Jesus Christ our Lord.
