The Gift of Baptism in Holiness
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
In this concluding episode of the introduction series, let’s take a closer look at Baptism as it relates to our call to “holiness.” What I want to know is … How is that we are called to be “holy” in Baptism? And why is Baptism so powerful?

Why is Baptism so powerful?
How is it that the Sacrament of Baptism can wipe away the stains of original and personal sins, and turn us into clean slates?
Christians are “dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.” How does that work?
How do we become Children of God and made sharers of the one paschal mystery of Jesus' Passion, Death & Resurrection?
What is the connection between Baptism and the Cross?
