For Your Reflection:

THE BAPTISM OF OUR LORD
In the waters of the Jordan, Jesus is revealed as the beloved Son of God.  Through this great epiphany, Jesus fulfills all righteousness and becomes the servant of God who will bring justice and be a light to the nations.  In the waters of baptism we too are washed by the Word, anointed by the Spirit, and name God’s beloved children.  Our baptismal mission is to proclaim good news to all who are oppressed or in need of God’s healing.
