THE BAPTISM OF JESUS
JOHN: ONE MIGHTIER
THAN I IS COMING
AFTER ME
GOD THE FATHER:
AND IT IS MY BELOVED SON. HE IS
GOING TO START
TEACHING YOU. LISTEN TO WHAT HE
HAS TO SAY.
JCM, 2015
THE END OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON AND
THE BAPTISM OF JESUS
About a year ago I met someone who came in and
admired the Christmas decorations. The guy said: I’ve
been away from Church for a long time. But something
attracted me. I think it was the decorations.
I answered: Welcome home. Welcome to your Father’s house. It is the Sacred Season that has brought you
home.
Then he added: It’s too bad that the decorations
have to be taken down. They are so nice.
I nodded and didn’t say anything. But I will share
with you what I was thinking. The Christmas Season is
over. The decorations come down. Jesus is baptized. Jesus
goes to work. And for us, life must also go on. The taking
down of Christmas decorations is not an end. It is a beginning.
For Jesus it was the beginning of his public life.
And, if we may be allowed a little liberty, maybe that is
what God the Father was telling us when he spoke from
the clouds.
