What is baptism? Why do we baptize babies? Who's doing what in baptism? Today we remember the Baptism of our Lord in the Jordan River. Jesus was baptized into our kind of life and died our kind of death so that through baptism we could be joined to him in his kind death and then rise with him into his kind of life.
The Gospel is fully on display every time we baptize anyone into the faith - but especially when we baptize a baby!
