One Baptism - Many Hopes

Today, while at the Holy Masses, most of us, adults, renew own baptismal promises, renouncing -- at the same time -- personal attachment to sins. In the last fact, in my opinion, lays the great significance and beauty of the Solemn Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.

It is so for the baptismal renewal and joy are not reserved for the babies; they can  be with us all every single day, if only we trust that Jesus is stronger than anyone else and, subsequently, are willing to choose His Spirit over the worldly one.      

Even if you would fail once, twice or seventy-seven times, though, it is important for you to remember that Jesus instituted the baptismal practice not only for Himself and the ones who are to be baptized in the future, but also for these baptized people who still falsely believe that, because of some trespasses from the past, ''rivers of their lives'' have to remain unclean.
