Chapter 4: Water, Oil, and Flame. I believe this chapter is called "Water, Oil, and Flame" because it mainly focuses on the baptism and renewal of multiple homies. When we are baptized, we are blessed with holy water, oil, and candles, thus the name of the chapter. Out of this whole section, however, my favorite was George's story. The night before he was baptized, his brother was killed, and he didn't know about it until after the baptism. When he found out, he responded maturely, and calmly, in a way. Father G wrote: "It is as if the commitment he has just made in water, oil, and flame has taken hold and his grief is pure and true and more resembles the heartbreak of God." I think this story is my favorite because it shows just what baptism and God himself can do. Baptism and handing ourselves over to God can wash us free of our sins and anger, and can renew us into the people he planned for us to be.
