Missionary

I linked to Commonweal a few weeks ago about Padre Alejandro Solalinde’s true life battle for religious freedom. Unlike American prelates, many Christians around the world are facing far more serious threats. Also unlike some prelates, this particular Christian seems to have his priorities straight on the sacramental roots of his calling:

I’m a missionary, not because I’m a priest … because I’m baptized.

This is an evangelical mindset in which we could all use immersion. And not just in times and places of authentic persecution. But every day.
