heaven.”— Matthew 16:19

In recent weeks, we have looked at the evolution of how
Roman Catholics initiate children into the life of the Church.
How did customs evolve in the Eastern Church? At one time,
Christians in both East and West preferred to celebrate baptism
in a community setting, with large numbers of adults and children initiated at Easter. The two branches of Christianity began
to split on the proper time to do this.
In the East, water was blessed in abundance on the feast of
the Epiphany, which marked, among other things, the baptism
of the Lord. Once infant baptism was fixed on that day, local
customs marking a birth began to evolve. One celebration was
the giving of a name on the eighth day, another was the
“purification” of the mother on the fortieth day after birth. In
that blessing, re-enacting Mary and Joseph’s journey to the
temple, the priest took the baby in his arms and placed the
child before the altar. Just as Simeon received the child Jesus,
so the priest received the new Christian while chanting Simeon’s prayer. Later, normally on Epiphany, the priest would
baptize, chrismate (confirm), and give a few drops of the Precious Blood to the child in a joyous celebration of the whole
community.—Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
Mientras que la población de estudiantes que no son hispanos va bajando en Estados Unidos de América, el número de
estudiantes hispanos va creciendo en las escuelas primarias y
secundarias. Esta es buena noticia para los latinos. La mala
noticia es que el porcentaje de estudiantes latinos que abandonan la escuela y nunca terminan su educación sigue creciendo.
De la misma manera, el número de latinos que van a la universidad continúa muy bajo y muchos de los que asisten nunca
terminan por falta de recursos, documentos legales o apoyo
La familia constituye uno de nuestros valores centrales como hispanos. Esta no debe ser una barrera sino un apoyo para
que se eduquen nuestros hijos e hijas. Recuerdo bien que a la
edad de 6 años mi papá me hacía pasar y repasar el abecedario.
Durante la primaria, él y mi mamá me corregían la tarea, y cuando no quería ir a la escuela, me hacían ver lo difícil que es la
vida cuando no se tiene estudios. Mis padres no terminaron la
escuela pero todos sus hijos ahora somos maestros. La educación
comienza en el hogar, animen a sus hijos.
