HE CONTINUED ON HIS WAY FULL OF JOY
The Ethiopian Eunuch shares with us the astonishing feeling of joy that he felt after his baptism. Most of us were baptized as babies and our baptism is not the sign of some conversion but a social ritual for many. Somehow if this ritual will be what it is meant to be we have somehow at some time in our lives experience personal conversion. There has to be a personal decision to believe in Jesus Christ and his teachings. Those of us who have experienced such a spiritual experience even in a very fleeting way can understand the overwhelming joy of the Ethiopian. Such an experience cannot but result in some form of transformation in our lives and will give meaning to the many religious practices that we do – like going to Mass, praying the rosary, etc. The strong emotion of our experience might fade but our memory of the experience will give us strength to face all that will come into our life.
