Day 36: Tuesday: The mystery of it

I baptized her. And I felt like asking her, “What have I done? What does it mean?” That was a question that came to me often, not because I felt less than certain I had done something that did mean something, but because no matter how much I thought and read and prayed, I felt outside the mystery of it.

Was there a sense of mystery to your baptism, either in the lead up or in the ritual itself? Or did it all feel very mundane? Pray about your experience.

Reading from Marilynne Robinson Gilead (London, Virago: 2004), 24.
