  • Welcome to Live with Passion, I'm Father Cedric Pisegna.
  • 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:36.190
  • I am proclaiming to you a series about what really matters,
  • 00:00:36.190 --> 00:00:41.180
  • and I wanna share with you that baptism
  • 00:00:41.180 --> 00:00:45.010
  • in the Holy Spirit really matters.
  • 00:00:46.060 --> 00:00:50.020
  • This revolutionized my life and I know
  • 00:00:50.020 --> 00:00:52.020
  • it can revolutionize your life, too.
  • 00:00:52.020 --> 00:00:53.270
  • I wanna share with you the Gospel of Matthew 3.
  • 00:00:53.270 --> 00:00:58.040
  • This is John the Baptist speaking.
  • 00:00:58.040 --> 00:01:00.210
  • "I baptize you with water for repentance,
  • 00:01:00.210 --> 00:01:04.130
  • but the one who is coming after me is mightier than I,
  • 00:01:04.130 --> 00:01:07.210
  • whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:12.060
  • He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
  • 00:01:12.060 --> 00:01:17.060
  • I've had the privilege of studying in Israel.
  • 00:01:18.120 --> 00:01:21.160
  • In fact, I lived over in the Holy Land
  • 00:01:21.160 --> 00:01:23.100
  • for about three months way back when.
  • 00:01:23.100 --> 00:01:26.060
  • And one of the places that we went to
  • 00:01:26.060 --> 00:01:27.250
  • that I'll never forget was the Jordan River.
  • 00:01:27.250 --> 00:01:30.270
  • They have a traditional place of baptism there
  • 00:01:30.270 --> 00:01:34.000
  • where Jesus was baptized traditionally,
  • 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:36.170
  • and they've actually put railings there
  • 00:01:36.170 --> 00:01:38.250
  • and now they have people,
  • 00:01:38.250 --> 00:01:40.270
  • pilgrims from all over the world,
  • 00:01:40.270 --> 00:01:43.100
  • come there to be baptized in the Jordan River
  • 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:46.010
  • or at least to renew their baptism
  • 00:01:46.010 --> 00:01:48.020
  • by sprinkling of water, splashing of water.
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:51.090
  • All of a sudden I notice there's a big bus rode up,
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:54.220
  • and a group of African-Americans got out.
  • 00:01:54.220 --> 00:01:58.130
  • They were from the United States.
  • 00:01:58.130 --> 00:02:00.200
  • Must have been Pentecostal because
  • 00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:03.230
  • they were pretty spirited and they all were singing,
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:07.150
  • and they came down to the baptism spot down by the Jordan,
  • 00:02:07.150 --> 00:02:11.160
  • and I'm thinking to myself, this is great.
  • 00:02:11.160 --> 00:02:13.090
  • We came just at the right time
  • 00:02:13.090 --> 00:02:15.150
  • because they're gonna do a baptism.
  • 00:02:15.150 --> 00:02:17.190
  • And sure enough, the preacher went in,
  • 00:02:17.190 --> 00:02:22.100
  • he had white clothing on, he went in the water,
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:25.070
  • and I mean, he didn't just stand by the side,
  • 00:02:25.070 --> 00:02:27.080
  • he went in probably up to about here,
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:30.160
  • and then this one woman went in to be baptized.
  • 00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:34.220
  • She was probably, I don't wanna exaggerate,
  • 00:02:34.220 --> 00:02:38.030
  • 300 pounds, she was pretty large, African-American woman.
  • 00:02:38.030 --> 00:02:42.030
  • She goes in the water, he takes her,
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:43.270
  • they do full immersion, dunks her completely in,
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:47.220
  • comes out, you know, it's the whole symbol,
  • 00:02:47.220 --> 00:02:50.020
  • dying with Christ, rising with Christ.
  • 00:02:50.020 --> 00:02:52.240
  • And she comes out of the water,
  • 00:02:52.240 --> 00:02:54.080
  • and we're all watching with our mouths wide open,
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:57.070
  • and all of a sudden she raises her hands
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:02:59.240
  • and she starts shaking like this, and she goes,
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:03.010
  • "I've got religion", and we all clapped. (clapping)
  • 00:03:03.010 --> 00:03:07.100
  • We thought it was beautiful because I have to tell you,
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:10.100
  • my baptism, I don't remember my baptism
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:13.050
  • because I was baptized when I was one month old.
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:17.000
  • But here was this woman who was baptized into Christ,
  • 00:03:17.000 --> 00:03:22.000
  • comes out sopping wet, and that's the sense
  • 00:03:23.050 --> 00:03:26.200
  • I wanna try to give you about what baptism is.
  • 00:03:26.200 --> 00:03:30.050
  • As a Catholic priest now, I think in the old days
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:33.280
  • they used to do baptisms, you know,
  • 00:03:33.280 --> 00:03:36.060
  • they take the infant and they'd kind of
  • 00:03:36.060 --> 00:03:37.230
  • sprinkle water over the forehead.
  • 00:03:37.230 --> 00:03:41.010
  • Now we try to do the symbol
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:43.290
  • and the sign of baptism as it really is.
  • 00:03:43.290 --> 00:03:46.080
  • We will take the child and pretty much
  • 00:03:46.080 --> 00:03:48.190
  • dunk that little baby right into the water,
  • 00:03:48.190 --> 00:03:50.280
  • pull them out, oftentimes they cry but that's fine.
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:54.130
  • They'll be sopping wet.
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:55.210
  • Or, at the Easter vigil, we will take the adults
  • 00:03:55.210 --> 00:03:59.190
  • and we'll bring them into the baptismal pool
  • 00:03:59.190 --> 00:04:02.000
  • and dunk them fully in, they'll come sopping wet out,
  • 00:04:02.000 --> 00:04:05.110
  • because really that's what baptism is.
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:07.260
  • It says this over and over again
  • 00:04:07.260 --> 00:04:10.030
  • in the scriptures, maybe 100 times,
  • 00:04:10.030 --> 00:04:12.220
  • we are baptized in Christ.
  • 00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:15.190
  • It talks about Paul the Apostle especially.
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:18.070
  • In Christ, in Christ, in Christ.
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:20.120
  • So, that's the great symbol of being in Christ
  • 00:04:20.120 --> 00:04:23.040
  • when you actually die with Christ and you rise with Him.
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:26.230
  • So I want you to get that sense of what baptism is.
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:30.220
  • Baptism is being soaked, it's being drenched,
  • 00:04:30.220 --> 00:04:35.220
  • it's being saturated.
  • 00:04:37.010 --> 00:04:39.060
  • I remember there was a commercial
  • 00:04:40.140 --> 00:04:41.190
  • out years ago about Nestea drinks,
  • 00:04:41.190 --> 00:04:44.290
  • and it says "Take the Nestea plunge", and it showed this man
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:48.210
  • going backwards into a pool and splash.
  • 00:04:48.210 --> 00:04:51.160
  • Those of you who have been baptized
  • 00:04:51.160 --> 00:04:53.040
  • by the fact that you have been baptized into Christ
  • 00:04:53.040 --> 00:04:56.280
  • and that has great meaning.
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:58.210
  • And as I said, I didn't remember my baptism
  • 00:04:58.210 --> 00:05:01.240
  • because I was baptized when I was an infant,
  • 00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:05.040
  • and there's a lot of debate.
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:06.090
  • I hear this from Protestants especially
  • 00:05:06.090 --> 00:05:09.000
  • and also from Catholics, but there's a lot of debate.
  • 00:05:09.000 --> 00:05:12.160
  • Does baptism save?
  • 00:05:12.160 --> 00:05:16.080
  • Because people will say, "Well, I've been baptized
  • 00:05:16.080 --> 00:05:18.120
  • "and that denotes salvation",
  • 00:05:18.120 --> 00:05:21.190
  • but there's a lot of controversy about that.
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.230
  • Does your baptism save you?
  • 00:05:23.230 --> 00:05:26.060
  • Because Jesus did teach at the end of the Gospel of Matthew,
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:29.180
  • he said, "Go into all nations and baptize them
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:31.290
  • "in the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit."
  • 00:05:31.290 --> 00:05:34.260
  • So Jesus told us to baptize people
  • 00:05:34.260 --> 00:05:38.100
  • because some denominations think,
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:40.010
  • well, baptism doesn't really matter.
  • 00:05:40.010 --> 00:05:41.280
  • Your choice toward Jesus is what matters.
  • 00:05:41.280 --> 00:05:45.070
  • And I wanna bring some balance to this
  • 00:05:45.070 --> 00:05:46.240
  • and say although I was baptized as an infant,
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:50.030
  • as Catholics we believe that
  • 00:05:50.030 --> 00:05:52.060
  • some type of a grace was given to me at that moment.
  • 00:05:52.060 --> 00:05:55.280
  • My parents made the decision for me
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:58.000
  • but there was a grace given.
  • 00:05:59.000 --> 00:06:00.200
  • Grace is the free gift of God.
  • 00:06:00.200 --> 00:06:03.040
  • And so original sin was washed away and grace was given,
  • 00:06:03.040 --> 00:06:08.040
  • but it was only when I made a decision
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:12.250
  • for Christ in my teen years
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:15.180
  • that the graces of that baptism came alive in me,
  • 00:06:15.180 --> 00:06:19.050
  • and then I experienced baptism in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:06:19.050 --> 00:06:23.100
  • So I believe that there has to be not only a baptism,
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:27.220
  • but there has to be a decision for Christ.
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:30.180
  • There has to be a choice for Christ.
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:33.240
  • It was years ago, our former pope, John Paul II,
  • 00:06:35.060 --> 00:06:38.090
  • who is now a saint, Saint John Paul II,
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:40.150
  • he said that there are many people
  • 00:06:41.200 --> 00:06:44.030
  • who are Catholic who are baptized Catholic
  • 00:06:44.030 --> 00:06:47.010
  • and are not going to church.
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:48.240
  • He called them baptized pagans.
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:52.080
  • So it's not baptism alone that saves us.
  • 00:06:52.080 --> 00:06:56.010
  • Baptism can saves us when it's ratified
  • 00:06:56.010 --> 00:07:00.090
  • by our own choice, our own decision.
  • 00:07:00.090 --> 00:07:03.120
  • Baptism predisposes us to the grace of God
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:08.100
  • but alone, does it save?
  • 00:07:08.100 --> 00:07:10.230
  • Well, I'll let you decide.
  • 00:07:10.230 --> 00:07:12.270
  • But in my life, I don't think it did.
  • 00:07:12.270 --> 00:07:15.110
  • But there is a grace given.
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:17.080
  • It's baptism and choice.
  • 00:07:17.080 --> 00:07:20.030
  • So, I experienced a new filling
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:23.200
  • when I came to Christ, the filling of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:23.200 --> 00:07:27.190
  • And as I said, when Paul the Apostle wrote about baptism,
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:32.100
  • or when he wrote about Jesus and discipleship,
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:34.240
  • he said that we are in Christ.
  • 00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:37.220
  • And what it means is that when we're baptized,
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:40.030
  • original sin is washed away
  • 00:07:40.030 --> 00:07:42.110
  • and we're plunged right into Jesus.
  • 00:07:42.110 --> 00:07:45.250
  • I love Saint Patrick.
  • 00:07:45.250 --> 00:07:48.010
  • He wrote this beautiful prose about being in Christ.
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:52.000
  • It was called "Saint Patrick's Breastplate".
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:55.020
  • It was a prayer that he made right before
  • 00:07:55.020 --> 00:07:57.240
  • he went to the King of Ireland.
  • 00:07:57.240 --> 00:07:59.160
  • He was trying to convert the King of Ireland,
  • 00:08:00.220 --> 00:08:03.050
  • and he was afraid that he might be killed
  • 00:08:03.050 --> 00:08:05.220
  • because he was trying to convert the king.
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:08.060
  • So Saint Patrick prayed this prayer of protection
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:11.240
  • called "Saint Patrick's Breastplate".
  • 00:08:11.240 --> 00:08:14.270
  • I think it has to do, also, with baptism.
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:17.100
  • It goes like this:
  • 00:08:17.100 --> 00:08:18.180
  • Christ with me, Christ before me,
  • 00:08:18.180 --> 00:08:23.090
  • Christ behind me, Christ within me,
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:26.230
  • Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
  • 00:08:27.280 --> 00:08:29.240
  • Christ at my right, Christ at my left,
  • 00:08:29.240 --> 00:08:32.090
  • Christ when I sit, Christ when I stand.
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:36.120
  • Jesus soaks every nook and cranny of our heart,
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:40.010
  • and we are in Christ.
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:41.160
  • And baptism is really important.
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:44.100
  • So this is what John the Baptist was referring to
  • 00:08:44.100 --> 00:08:46.130
  • when he said, "Jesus will baptize you
  • 00:08:46.130 --> 00:08:48.170
  • "with the Holy Spirit and with fire."
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:51.020
  • In other words, what he was saying is
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:52.140
  • that we would be plunged, immersed,
  • 00:08:52.140 --> 00:08:55.210
  • soaked, saturated, anointed by the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:09:00.040
  • There would be a new power given to us.
  • 00:09:00.040 --> 00:09:02.290
  • The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God
  • 00:09:02.290 --> 00:09:05.090
  • and the number one reason why the Spirit comes
  • 00:09:05.090 --> 00:09:07.220
  • is to give us a close, intimate,
  • 00:09:07.220 --> 00:09:10.020
  • personal relationship with God.
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:11.190
  • That is so crucial.
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:12.230
  • But the Spirit also comes to bring us passion,
  • 00:09:14.040 --> 00:09:18.280
  • enthusiasm, life, creativity, dreaming dreams,
  • 00:09:18.280 --> 00:09:23.280
  • helps us to realize our potential,
  • 00:09:25.010 --> 00:09:27.050
  • become all that we can be.
  • 00:09:27.050 --> 00:09:29.180
  • When I studied in Israel I learned this.
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:32.220
  • The ancient Jews used to have something called a Mikvah.
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:36.170
  • A Mikvah was a ritual cleansing bath,
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:39.280
  • and just about every city that we went into
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:42.020
  • we would find the remnants, the archeological excavations,
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:45.140
  • we'd find the remnants of these Mikvahs,
  • 00:09:45.140 --> 00:09:47.130
  • these ritual ceremonial baths.
  • 00:09:47.130 --> 00:09:50.030
  • And the Jews would cleanse their body before worship.
  • 00:09:50.030 --> 00:09:54.040
  • Well, in a similar way what happened
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:56.070
  • was the Christians took that idea
  • 00:09:56.070 --> 00:09:59.120
  • and they turned it into baptism,
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:01.000
  • not so much to wash us externally
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:03.240
  • but to cleanse our hearts, to cleanse us from original sin,
  • 00:10:03.240 --> 00:10:08.230
  • and to symbolize baptism in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:10:09.280 --> 00:10:12.280
  • So, let's talk some more about baptism in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:10:12.280 --> 00:10:16.210
  • Besides this idea of being plunged,
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:21.090
  • and washed, and cleansed, and immersed, and soaked,
  • 00:10:21.090 --> 00:10:26.090
  • baptism in the Greek also has another descriptive meaning.
  • 00:10:27.220 --> 00:10:31.070
  • Baptizo also refers to a fabric such as wool
  • 00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:37.250
  • that's dipped in dye.
  • 00:10:38.240 --> 00:10:40.080
  • For example, the fabric when it's dipped in the dye,
  • 00:10:40.080 --> 00:10:44.220
  • picture wool being dipped in some type of a dye,
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:48.150
  • and when that fabric is dipped it changes color
  • 00:10:48.150 --> 00:10:52.230
  • and a transformation happens at its core.
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:56.160
  • Think about a yellow wool garment and it's dipped
  • 00:10:56.160 --> 00:10:59.280
  • into purple, and you dip it in,
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:02.100
  • that's baptizo when you dip that wool into that dye
  • 00:11:02.100 --> 00:11:07.040
  • and the wool goes through a transformation.
  • 00:11:07.040 --> 00:11:10.250
  • So to be baptized in the Holy Spirit means
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:12.270
  • that you're gonna go through a transformation
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:14.240
  • and your literal identity is gonna change.
  • 00:11:14.240 --> 00:11:18.080
  • I used the color yellow for an idea that I had,
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:24.270
  • and I used the color purple for an idea that I had.
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:28.060
  • When I think about my life growing up as a teenager,
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:33.060
  • yellow is the color of cowardice,
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:36.030
  • it's the color of shyness.
  • 00:11:36.030 --> 00:11:38.040
  • If you're yellow, you're a coward.
  • 00:11:39.290 --> 00:11:42.070
  • Well, I wasn't so much a coward but I was very shy,
  • 00:11:42.070 --> 00:11:46.210
  • never really bold, I was fearful, had panic attacks,
  • 00:11:46.210 --> 00:11:51.210
  • shy to get up in front of people,
  • 00:11:53.140 --> 00:11:55.260
  • and when I encountered Jesus,
  • 00:11:55.260 --> 00:11:58.250
  • when I was baptized in the Holy Spirit
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:12:01.190
  • when I was 18 years old, something happened.
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:04.170
  • My garment, that yellow, was dipped, immersed into purple.
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:09.160
  • Purple, of course, the color of courage,
  • 00:12:10.200 --> 00:12:13.270
  • valor, bravery, boldness.
  • 00:12:13.270 --> 00:12:18.090
  • And I began to experience a transformation.
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:22.050
  • I call it being revolutionized by the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:12:22.050 --> 00:12:25.230
  • I began to become courageous, and daring, (laughs)
  • 00:12:25.230 --> 00:12:30.230
  • and bold in ways that I never would.
  • 00:12:32.290 --> 00:12:34.280
  • I began to actually start talking to people about Jesus,
  • 00:12:34.280 --> 00:12:38.120
  • and I never would've done that.
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:40.020
  • I began to start getting up there in front of people
  • 00:12:40.020 --> 00:12:43.030
  • and proclaiming Christ.
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:45.080
  • I began trying new things to be daring,
  • 00:12:45.080 --> 00:12:47.220
  • to be bold, to be courageous,
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:49.280
  • and I was never like that before.
  • 00:12:49.280 --> 00:12:52.000
  • And I began to realize I could see what was going on.
  • 00:12:53.120 --> 00:12:56.190
  • Slow but sure, it didn't happen all at once,
  • 00:12:56.190 --> 00:12:59.140
  • but I was being dipped, really plunged,
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:02.210
  • into a dye that was changing me.
  • 00:13:02.210 --> 00:13:05.110
  • The Holy Spirit comes to give us
  • 00:13:06.080 --> 00:13:08.010
  • a personal relationship with God.
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:09.260
  • That's the number one reason.
  • 00:13:09.260 --> 00:13:11.220
  • But the Holy Spirit also comes to empower us,
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:14.180
  • as I talked about, to give us a new fire
  • 00:13:14.180 --> 00:13:17.230
  • but also to change who we are.
  • 00:13:17.230 --> 00:13:20.220
  • At our root core, many people
  • 00:13:21.230 --> 00:13:24.040
  • are going through what's called an identity crisis.
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:27.080
  • People my age, I'm a late baby boomer,
  • 00:13:27.080 --> 00:13:29.250
  • are struggling with who they are.
  • 00:13:29.250 --> 00:13:32.120
  • They have invested themselves in money
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:35.110
  • and in material goods, and they've lost themselves.
  • 00:13:35.110 --> 00:13:39.030
  • They're relying upon their relationships, their money,
  • 00:13:39.030 --> 00:13:43.010
  • their pedigree, their education,
  • 00:13:43.280 --> 00:13:46.070
  • to try to give them their identity.
  • 00:13:46.070 --> 00:13:48.280
  • But I've come to discover,
  • 00:13:48.280 --> 00:13:50.080
  • and I wrote a book on the Holy Spirit called,
  • 00:13:50.080 --> 00:13:52.240
  • "Glorious Holy Spirit", I've come to discover,
  • 00:13:52.240 --> 00:13:55.070
  • this is my subtitle,
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:57.010
  • that you can't know who you are
  • 00:13:57.010 --> 00:13:59.220
  • until you know whose you are.
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:02.000
  • I hope you got that.
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:03.130
  • You can't know who you are, your identity,
  • 00:14:03.130 --> 00:14:05.050
  • until you know who you belong to.
  • 00:14:05.050 --> 00:14:07.230
  • And once I experienced this change,
  • 00:14:07.230 --> 00:14:11.180
  • this encounter with the Holy Spirit
  • 00:14:11.180 --> 00:14:13.190
  • in the depths of my heart, I began to change.
  • 00:14:13.190 --> 00:14:18.010
  • The way I looked at myself, my self-image,
  • 00:14:18.010 --> 00:14:22.040
  • my self-esteem, the way I began to act toward other people.
  • 00:14:22.040 --> 00:14:27.040
  • I went through a whole revolution.
  • 00:14:28.090 --> 00:14:29.160
  • So to be baptized in the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:14:29.160 --> 00:14:31.190
  • yes it means to be plunged into God, and that's wonderful,
  • 00:14:31.190 --> 00:14:34.140
  • and to have a deep new relationship with God
  • 00:14:34.140 --> 00:14:36.240
  • means to have new enthusiasm and a new fire,
  • 00:14:36.240 --> 00:14:39.060
  • and yes, I'm hoping that for you.
  • 00:14:39.060 --> 00:14:41.000
  • But it also means a radical self-identity change,
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:45.080
  • and I want that for you because
  • 00:14:45.080 --> 00:14:47.090
  • many people today are lost,
  • 00:14:47.090 --> 00:14:48.230
  • many people don't know who they are,
  • 00:14:48.230 --> 00:14:51.040
  • and you can come to know who you are and whose you are
  • 00:14:51.040 --> 00:14:55.070
  • as you are dipped in the dye of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:55.070 --> 00:14:58.280
  • So as you remember in the acts of the apostles,
  • 00:14:58.280 --> 00:15:01.050
  • they became very bold once they received the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:15:01.050 --> 00:15:04.160
  • They went out and preached the gospel.
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:06.020
  • Remember they were locked in the room, very fearful,
  • 00:15:06.020 --> 00:15:09.020
  • and Pentecosts came, they became very bold.
  • 00:15:09.020 --> 00:15:11.120
  • And the word in the Greek is Parrhesia.
  • 00:15:11.120 --> 00:15:15.060
  • They had this new boldness,
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:17.080
  • this new daring, this new courage.
  • 00:15:17.080 --> 00:15:20.050
  • And really what was happening is
  • 00:15:20.050 --> 00:15:21.280
  • they were being changed inside and out.
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:23.260
  • They were coming to a whole new self-identity.
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:27.080
  • And then other than a yellow garment with a purple dye,
  • 00:15:27.080 --> 00:15:32.000
  • I wanna talk about a gray garment or a gray wool
  • 00:15:32.000 --> 00:15:37.000
  • being dipped into a red dye.
  • 00:15:37.260 --> 00:15:39.290
  • Notice I chose for the color of this lectern red.
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:44.060
  • Red is the color of fire, the color of passion,
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:48.100
  • the color of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:50.170
  • On Pentecost in the Catholic Church we wear red garments,
  • 00:15:50.170 --> 00:15:54.150
  • and it's not by coincidence,
  • 00:15:54.150 --> 00:15:57.280
  • it's because red is the color of energy, enthusiasm, life.
  • 00:15:57.280 --> 00:16:03.000
  • So picture a gray garment being dipped into a red dye
  • 00:16:04.130 --> 00:16:08.140
  • and the wool, the fabric, undergoes
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:11.120
  • a transformation from gray, what is gray?
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:14.190
  • Gray is kind of mediocre and bland and ordinary.
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:19.190
  • It's kind of a nondescript color. (laughs)
  • 00:16:21.050 --> 00:16:24.170
  • Gray, I would never get a gray car.
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:27.030
  • Gray just doesn't do it for me.
  • 00:16:27.030 --> 00:16:29.050
  • So picture the gray becoming literally changed
  • 00:16:29.050 --> 00:16:32.030
  • and transformed into something red.
  • 00:16:32.030 --> 00:16:35.100
  • Red, the color of fire, and passion, enthusiasm.
  • 00:16:35.100 --> 00:16:39.280
  • Red the color of life, and energy,
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:44.240
  • and getting things done, realizing your potential.
  • 00:16:44.240 --> 00:16:48.050
  • And that's what began to happen to me also.
  • 00:16:48.050 --> 00:16:51.140
  • Not just to me, think about the people in the Bible.
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:54.090
  • Paul the Apostle said, he said,
  • 00:16:54.090 --> 00:16:56.140
  • "Woe to me if I don't preach the gospel." (laughs)
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:59.110
  • He said, "I'm compelled to preach the gospel.
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:02.270
  • "I'm compelled to speak."
  • 00:17:02.270 --> 00:17:05.030
  • In other words, what was going on
  • 00:17:05.030 --> 00:17:06.160
  • is that he was so full of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:08.190
  • he had to, he had this fire, he traveled everywhere,
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:12.130
  • and he had this enthusiasm.
  • 00:17:12.130 --> 00:17:14.190
  • Jeremiah said, "If I try to hold it in,
  • 00:17:14.190 --> 00:17:17.100
  • "it's like a fire shut up in my bones.
  • 00:17:17.100 --> 00:17:19.180
  • "I have to let it out."
  • 00:17:19.180 --> 00:17:21.170
  • So, with the Holy Spirit there comes
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:24.230
  • a new zest, if you will, this enthusiasm for life,
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:29.230
  • and when I was a teenager, I didn't really
  • 00:17:31.040 --> 00:17:34.280
  • know what I wanted to do with my life.
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:37.190
  • Wasn't all that excited about my future.
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:41.010
  • Didn't have a whole lot of enthusiasm,
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:43.070
  • didn't really have a celebrative spirit
  • 00:17:43.070 --> 00:17:45.290
  • because I didn't have any purpose.
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:48.130
  • But when the Spirit touched me,
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:51.030
  • when I realized the graces of my baptism
  • 00:17:51.030 --> 00:17:53.150
  • when I was baptized in the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:56.050
  • again, my identity started changing in another way.
  • 00:17:56.050 --> 00:17:59.200
  • Not only did it change in terms of being more courageous,
  • 00:17:59.200 --> 00:18:04.080
  • but I began to have this energy
  • 00:18:04.080 --> 00:18:07.260
  • that vitamins can't give, (laughs) this passion.
  • 00:18:07.260 --> 00:18:11.020
  • And that's why people would see me preach
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:13.070
  • and they'd say, "Father, you have all this passion."
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:16.160
  • And after I was told that time and time again,
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:19.120
  • finally I developed a television program
  • 00:18:19.120 --> 00:18:21.150
  • and I call it, "Don't Just Live, Live with Passion!"
  • 00:18:21.150 --> 00:18:24.040
  • And so my identity began to change,
  • 00:18:25.090 --> 00:18:27.270
  • and I can't help but be this way.
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:31.140
  • I love it because I didn't know where it came from.
  • 00:18:31.140 --> 00:18:36.120
  • It wasn't something that I grew up with.
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:39.080
  • I mean, I was a healthy young man
  • 00:18:39.080 --> 00:18:40.180
  • but I didn't have all that much energy.
  • 00:18:40.180 --> 00:18:42.000
  • I played sports and different things like that.
  • 00:18:42.000 --> 00:18:44.180
  • But now there's this desire, this motivation,
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:49.170
  • this power, this grace, this fire.
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:52.180
  • It was Saint Catherine of Siena that said,
  • 00:18:52.180 --> 00:18:55.120
  • "Be who you were meant to be
  • 00:18:55.120 --> 00:18:58.100
  • "and you will set the world on fire."
  • 00:18:58.100 --> 00:19:00.110
  • And that's what I believe.
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:01.290
  • That you're not ordinary,
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:04.020
  • you're not bland, you're not mediocre.
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:06.260
  • God designed you before the world began with a purpose.
  • 00:19:06.260 --> 00:19:10.160
  • He had a plan for your life
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:12.090
  • and that plan was to influence the world,
  • 00:19:12.090 --> 00:19:16.060
  • to change your world, and to set the world on fire.
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:20.280
  • One of the books that I like to read, and I read it daily,
  • 00:19:20.280 --> 00:19:24.140
  • is a devotional book by Norman Vincent Peale.
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:28.070
  • Course you might remember his name.
  • 00:19:28.070 --> 00:19:29.270
  • Norman Vincent Peale wrote the book,
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:31.280
  • "The Power of Positive Thinking".
  • 00:19:31.280 --> 00:19:34.120
  • And that's something that happens
  • 00:19:34.120 --> 00:19:36.170
  • in your mind also when the Spirit comes.
  • 00:19:36.170 --> 00:19:40.030
  • Your attitude begins to change. (laughs)
  • 00:19:40.030 --> 00:19:43.110
  • I used to be so negative.
  • 00:19:43.110 --> 00:19:45.060
  • I was born into a good family and lived in our culture,
  • 00:19:47.000 --> 00:19:50.110
  • but I think our culture, what it did
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:52.000
  • was it imbued this negativity in me
  • 00:19:52.000 --> 00:19:54.210
  • and I allowed that to happen
  • 00:19:54.210 --> 00:19:56.000
  • by watching television programs and the news
  • 00:19:56.000 --> 00:19:57.280
  • and various things, but when the Spirit came,
  • 00:19:57.280 --> 00:20:00.130
  • I don't even know what color this is,
  • 00:20:00.130 --> 00:20:02.080
  • I began maybe from blue to change to red.
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:07.070
  • You know, from being despair,
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:09.240
  • blue is the color of depression,
  • 00:20:09.240 --> 00:20:11.100
  • not that I was depressed, but I started
  • 00:20:11.100 --> 00:20:13.220
  • going through a color change in my mind.
  • 00:20:13.220 --> 00:20:16.180
  • So what I'm trying to say, I think you get the points,
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:21.250
  • is that the Spirit comes to revolutionize us deep within.
  • 00:20:21.250 --> 00:20:26.000
  • Ezekiel the prophet, Jeremiah the prophet,
  • 00:20:27.050 --> 00:20:29.080
  • talked about the day when there would be a new covenant,
  • 00:20:29.080 --> 00:20:32.240
  • and God said, "I will give you a new heart
  • 00:20:32.240 --> 00:20:36.030
  • "A new spirit I will put within you.
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:38.270
  • "I will take from you your heart of flesh,
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:42.060
  • "your heart of stone, and put within you a natural heart",
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:45.250
  • or I like to call it a supernatural heart.
  • 00:20:45.250 --> 00:20:48.240
  • So when I talk about I want you to be fully immersed,
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:52.200
  • I'm not just talking about you getting wet with water.
  • 00:20:52.200 --> 00:20:55.290
  • I am talking about you having a revolution deep within.
  • 00:20:55.290 --> 00:21:00.070
  • Your moral life will change, your attitude will change,
  • 00:21:00.070 --> 00:21:05.030
  • your heart will change, your thoughts will change,
  • 00:21:05.030 --> 00:21:09.030
  • you'll become courageous, you'll begin to know
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:11.260
  • who you really are at the core of your being.
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:14.170
  • This is what it means to be baptized in the Holy Spirit
  • 00:21:14.170 --> 00:21:17.190
  • and how few people are experiencing this
  • 00:21:17.190 --> 00:21:20.240
  • because they don't know.
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:22.010
  • Many people don't even know they were baptized,
  • 00:21:22.010 --> 00:21:23.220
  • they don't remember it.
  • 00:21:23.220 --> 00:21:25.000
  • Well, I'm talking about what
  • 00:21:25.000 --> 00:21:26.230
  • the fullness of your baptism is.
  • 00:21:26.230 --> 00:21:29.080
  • Being baptized in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:32.070
  • That's exactly what John the Baptist said about Jesus.
  • 00:21:32.070 --> 00:21:35.120
  • "I baptize you with water, but," he said,
  • 00:21:35.120 --> 00:21:38.000
  • "The one who comes after me will baptize you
  • 00:21:38.000 --> 00:21:39.290
  • "with the Holy Spirit and with fire."
  • 00:21:39.290 --> 00:21:42.030
  • In the Bible, we see the Spirit at work
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:44.120
  • in many different ways and it's really beautiful to see.
  • 00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:48.170
  • For example in Creation, the Spirit moved
  • 00:21:48.170 --> 00:21:50.290
  • over the face of the waters,
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:53.000
  • then the spirit took control of Sampson,
  • 00:21:53.000 --> 00:21:54.280
  • and he had this new strength.
  • 00:21:54.280 --> 00:21:56.190
  • The Spirit rushed upon David and anointed him as king.
  • 00:21:56.190 --> 00:22:00.060
  • The Spirit anointed Jesus at the Jordan,
  • 00:22:00.060 --> 00:22:02.240
  • He had the power to minister well.
  • 00:22:02.240 --> 00:22:05.060
  • The Spirit overshadowed Mary and she conceived
  • 00:22:05.060 --> 00:22:08.090
  • by the Holy Spirit without a man.
  • 00:22:08.090 --> 00:22:10.280
  • So the Spirit moves in our lives
  • 00:22:10.280 --> 00:22:12.210
  • to make us see visions and dream dreams.
  • 00:22:12.210 --> 00:22:16.170
  • I remember the story about Pentecost
  • 00:22:17.210 --> 00:22:19.290
  • and it says that your old people will dream dreams,
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:23.280
  • your young people will see visions.
  • 00:22:23.280 --> 00:22:26.160
  • You're never too old to dream a dream.
  • 00:22:26.160 --> 00:22:29.000
  • You're never too young to have a vision.
  • 00:22:29.000 --> 00:22:31.210
  • I recently went to a movie called "Apollo 11".
  • 00:22:31.210 --> 00:22:35.060
  • If you remember 50 years ago,
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:37.100
  • we sent a man to the moon, actually three men,
  • 00:22:38.210 --> 00:22:41.030
  • two of them landed on the moon,
  • 00:22:41.030 --> 00:22:43.070
  • and I was struck at that movie
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:44.220
  • by the audacity, the daring, the courage,
  • 00:22:44.220 --> 00:22:48.280
  • the creativity, the genius of the engineers
  • 00:22:48.280 --> 00:22:51.290
  • and the men that went to the moon.
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:54.190
  • See, that's a dream that JFK had
  • 00:22:54.190 --> 00:22:56.270
  • at the beginning of the 1960s,
  • 00:22:56.270 --> 00:22:59.160
  • that by the end of the decade
  • 00:22:59.160 --> 00:23:01.070
  • we would send a man to the moon.
  • 00:23:01.070 --> 00:23:03.100
  • And that's exactly what happened.
  • 00:23:03.100 --> 00:23:04.230
  • Well, if we can do that with the computers
  • 00:23:04.230 --> 00:23:07.040
  • they had 50 years ago,
  • 00:23:07.040 --> 00:23:08.140
  • the computer in my watch is more sophisticated
  • 00:23:08.140 --> 00:23:11.020
  • than the computers they had back then.
  • 00:23:11.020 --> 00:23:12.290
  • Well, if we could do that, what about
  • 00:23:12.290 --> 00:23:15.030
  • what the Spirit brings to us?
  • 00:23:15.030 --> 00:23:17.180
  • A new daring, and courage, and creativity,
  • 00:23:17.180 --> 00:23:22.180
  • and boldness, and enthusiasm.
  • 00:23:23.160 --> 00:23:26.280
  • I was telling you about Norman Vincent Peale,
  • 00:23:26.280 --> 00:23:29.100
  • that devotional that I read every day, day by day.
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:32.110
  • He talks about being positive,
  • 00:23:32.110 --> 00:23:33.250
  • but in almost every day in his devotional, he talks about
  • 00:23:33.250 --> 00:23:38.110
  • how life in Christ brings a new enthusiasm.
  • 00:23:38.110 --> 00:23:42.130
  • So most of you have been baptized, and I'm glad about that,
  • 00:23:42.130 --> 00:23:46.230
  • but it's baptism and choice, baptism and decision.
  • 00:23:46.230 --> 00:23:51.230
  • So make a new choice for Christ right now
  • 00:23:52.290 --> 00:23:56.030
  • that the grace of your baptism
  • 00:23:56.030 --> 00:23:57.180
  • is gonna come to all its fullness,
  • 00:23:57.180 --> 00:24:00.050
  • and like John the Baptist said, I want you to be baptized
  • 00:24:00.050 --> 00:24:04.160
  • in the Holy Spirit and with fire.
  • 00:24:04.160 --> 00:24:08.010
  • I am praying that your identity will change,
  • 00:24:08.010 --> 00:24:11.090
  • your mind will change, your heart will change,
  • 00:24:11.090 --> 00:24:15.080
  • your words will change, you'll be transformed
  • 00:24:15.080 --> 00:24:18.250
  • and have new courage, and daring, and boldness,
  • 00:24:18.250 --> 00:24:21.270
  • you will dream dreams and see visions,
  • 00:24:21.270 --> 00:24:25.030
  • and become all that you can be.
  • 00:24:25.030 --> 00:24:27.170
  • Don't just live, live with passion.
  • 00:24:27.170 --> 00:24:30.150
  • (gentle music)
  • 00:24:30.150 --> 00:24:33.120
  • I hope you like my teaching about being
  • 00:24:33.120 --> 00:24:36.040
  • baptized in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:24:36.040 --> 00:24:38.090
  • When you're dipped in the dye, you become
  • 00:24:38.090 --> 00:24:40.210
  • a dyed-in-the-wool Christian.
  • 00:24:40.210 --> 00:24:42.240
  • That's what I want for you.
  • 00:24:42.240 --> 00:24:44.180
  • Got a card from a woman and she said,
  • 00:24:44.180 --> 00:24:47.020
  • "Thank you Father Cedric for your programs."
  • 00:24:47.020 --> 00:24:49.160
  • She said, "Every one of your programs
  • 00:24:49.160 --> 00:24:51.250
  • "are spirit-led, spirit-filled,
  • 00:24:51.250 --> 00:24:55.030
  • "inspiring, and blessing-infused."
  • 00:24:55.030 --> 00:24:59.000
  • I love that.
  • 00:24:59.000 --> 00:25:00.090
  • That's exactly what I'm trying to do
  • 00:25:00.090 --> 00:25:01.180
  • with Live with Passion.
  • 00:25:01.180 --> 00:25:03.250
  • I want you to be infused (laughs) with the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:25:03.250 --> 00:25:07.280
  • filled with the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:25:07.280 --> 00:25:09.260
  • and I want you to come to a whole new identity.
  • 00:25:09.260 --> 00:25:11.230
  • That's what it means to be a dyed-in-the-wool Christian.
  • 00:25:11.230 --> 00:25:14.170
  • So I wrote a book called, "Glorious Holy Spirit".
  • 00:25:14.170 --> 00:25:17.170
  • The Subtitle is, "Knowing Who You Are
  • 00:25:17.170 --> 00:25:20.080
  • "by Knowing Whose You Are",
  • 00:25:20.080 --> 00:25:21.190
  • and I talked about that in the episode.
  • 00:25:21.190 --> 00:25:23.270
  • This book will help you to be filled with the Holy Spirit
  • 00:25:23.270 --> 00:25:27.000
  • and with fire, to become all that you can be,
  • 00:25:27.000 --> 00:25:30.120
  • and that's my hope as a Catholic priest.
  • 00:25:30.120 --> 00:25:32.120
  • I want you baptized in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:25:32.120 --> 00:25:34.160
  • I know most of you have been baptized,
