Commentary on the Gospel of
Fire is also an element of devastation and an image that illumines. Prophets announced walking through the fire to indicate one’s fervour to God’s will, undergo trials and go to any extent to being faithful to God. Gospel speaks of the baptism of fire. Baptism is a new beginning; it is a promise and a commitment. In our world of changes and drastic contradictions, to follow Jesus is a walk by fire. The commitment of baptism can burn us, divide, and disturb us. To defend the Gospel values and to hold on to the true faith is a challenge. Yet there are those who uphold humanity and announce fraternity at great cost.
I love looking through an article that can make people think. Also, many thanks for permitting me to comment!
