Sharing baptism

“Sharing baptism means that we are all sinners and need to be saved, redeemed, freed from sin. This is the negative aspect, which the First Letter of Peter calls ‘darkness’ when it says: ‘[God] called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.’ This is the experience of death, what Christ wanted to overcome, and what is symbolized in baptism by immersion in water, followed by emergence, the symbol of the resurrection to new life in Christ.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: What sin do you struggle with acknowledging in your own life? How might you overcome this by accepting that God has already called you out of this darkness and redeemed you through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ?
