Infant Baptism Formation for Parents
… we hope for a good life, the true life, for these children of ours; and also for happiness in a future that is still unknown. We are unable to guarantee this gift for the entire span of the unknown future, so we turn to the Lord to obtain this gift from our children.
This family of God, into which the child is now admitted, will always accompany our children …will give words of light in response to the great challenges of life, and will point out the right path to take …will also offer the child consolation and comfort, and God’s love when death is at hand
Pope Benedict XVI, Feast of the Baptism of the Lord 2006
