CWN Editor's Note: “In Baptism we give [a child] a treasure, in Baptism we give him a pledge: the Holy Spirit,” Pope Francis preached in his extemporaneous homily on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord in the Sistine Chapel (video, booklet). “The child comes out [of Baptism] with the strength of the Spirit within: the Spirit that will defend him, help him throughout his life. This is why it’s so important to baptize children, so that they grow with the strength of the Holy Spirit.”
