Big gifts for the First Sunday Sunday After Christmas

It's not a "normal" calendar day for this, but Good Shepherd will celebrate the sacrament of Holy Baptism today.

How wonderful an opportunity to preach on this part of today's Gospel:

"But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God."

Wonderful as well is the recent arrival of this new family in our parish, and the chance to preach this Gospel for relatives and friends that will come with them today.
