A priest baptized Mario Lopez in the Jordan River and it was such a beautiful moment in his faith. Can you imagine how powerful it must have felt to get baptized in the same river that John the Baptist baptized Jesus in?
I know I would be so full of emotion and excitement just like Mario Lopez was. I remember the very moment that I got baptized. And it was such a special moment between God and I. And it was a blessing to have had my family and church community watch that monumental period of time in my life.
Baptism is a very intimate, public declaration of faith in Jesus Christ. It represents that our flesh is dead and that our spirit is alive in Christ. TV host and actor Mario Lopez has just made that public declaration.
Ever since Mario was a young boy, he was devoted to the Catholic faith. But since he grew and experienced a little bit more in life, everything changed. Life experiences led him to a deeper relationship with God. And now he wants to commit his life to Jesus.
A priest gave a sermon at the Jordan River right before he baptized everyone. And when Mario stood in the water with the priest, he performed the sacrament. Mario was so excited and the smile on his face was so bright.
After the priest submerged Mario into the water, the people who were watching sung, "I Have Decided To Follow Jesus". It was such a sweet moment and I know it will resonate in Mario's mind throughout his journey with Jesus. What an experience that must have been!
