No, you're stupendous, Papa

"This is a stupendous thing: Through baptism the human person is brought into Jesus' unique and singular relationship with the Father, in such a way that the words that are spoken from heaven about the only-begotten Son become true for every man and woman who is reborn from the water of the Holy Spirit: You are my sons and daughters, my beloved."

"Dear friends," he continued, "how great is the gift of baptism! If we make ourselves fully aware of it, our life will become a continual 'grace.'

"What a joy for Christian parents, who have seen a new creature blossom from their love, who have brought this child to the baptismal font and seen the child be reborn in the womb of the Church, for a life that will never end! Gift, joy, but also responsibility!"
