Homily 194 – 1st Sunday of Lent

February 26th, 2012, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

Baptism Saves You Now

There’s going to be a test at the end of Lent, and it’s not going to be about whether you managed to avoid dessert for 40 days. The test has six questions and you have to get all six right in order to pass. The good news is that today’s homily gives you not only the questions, but also the answers.

On Easter, the priest is going to ask us to renew the promises of our Baptism. Do we even know what those promises are? Do we know why they’re important? If someone asked you the question, “Are you saved?” would you be able to answer? Today’s homily will steer you safely through Lent and onto getting an A+ on the test this Easter.
