Who and Whose?


This morning, Father gave us a great homily. He talked about how necessary indeed was the Baptism of the Lord, and how the Holy Spirit became visible in the form of a dove at the Baptism. He then segued into Galations 5:16 - 26 and spoke about the Sacraments, especially Reconciliation and Eucharist. Really inspiring and a great reminder that sin is real.
But what really stuck in my mind was a phrase he used about our relationship to God - "Remember who you are (A human being created in the image and likeness of God) and Whose you are (A child of the heavenly Father, a child of God).
This afternoon, there was a mandatory parent meeting for parents of kids in confirmation. Most of it was the usual logistics etc, but there was a presentation from some kids who went to Steubenville East at the shrine of La Sallette last year. They were strongly encouraging the kids to go this year, and I wish that I had been able to send our older kids to something like that. But you could have knocked me over with a stick when one of the presenters (who I KNOW was nowhere near my parish Masses this weekend) used that very phrase - remember who and whose you are.
OK God, I guess you are trying to tell me something here too!
