“I will make you the light of the nations so that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.” 

Isaiah 49:6

At our baptism, the priest said to our parents and godparents:

Parents and godparents, this light is entrusted to you to be kept burning brightly. [Name] has been enlightened by Christ. He/she is to walk always as a child of the light. May he/she keep the flame of faith alive in his/ her heart

We are called to be a light; to show the way, to spread warmth and dispel darkness.

Who you can be a light for at home, in school, where you live or in the wider world?

Activity

If you have any pictures of your family’s baptisms share them today. Perhaps you could light one of your baptismal candles while you pray together
