White Garments PITSTOP

In the Rite of Baptism, the Priest says:

Anointing of Chrism: “God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has freed you from sin, given you a new birth by water and the Holy Spirit, and welcomed you into his holy people. He now anoints you with the chrism of salvation. As Christ was anointed Priest, Prophet, and King, so may you live always as a member of his body, sharing everlasting life.”

Clothing with White Garment: “Receive this white garment. Never let it become stained, so that when you stand before the judgment seat of Our Lord you may have life everlasting.”

This prayer said at Baptism is a petition that we are anointed to share Jesus’ mission as Priest, Prophet and King and in the white garment, we may be kept without stain.

PITSTOP Contemplate:

Looking at your own life today, what resolutions can you make to make you worthy to be called a Baptized Christian keeping one’s life and faith pure and without stain?
