Jesus falling on us

Dorian, age 6, was working with the gestures of baptism.  When I wondered what the sign of the cross over all at the baptism mean, Dorian replied, “Jesus is always with us.”  When I wondered what the imposition of the hand over the water could mean, Dorian said, “God.”  When I wondered what the pouring of the water over the person being baptized could mean, Dorian explained, “Jesus falling on us.  We are Jesus’ ‘cause Jesus’ bread is with us and Jesus’ blood is in us.”
