Book of Faith Lenten Journey: Water Marks
Water marks our natural lives from our mother's wombs to our daily bathing and the quenching of our thirst. Water marks our sacramental lives in God as we die and rise with Christ in our baptisms. And so it is with Scripture: from the first chapter of the Bible to the last, God's Word is water marked.
