LIVING IN RELATIONSHIP

Most of us have a hard time with relationships because they help us to live up to our potential and often, quite simply, we would rather not.

As we hear about Jesus’ own baptism, we must ask ourselves about the significance of his own baptism as well as ours.

Through Jesus’ baptism, God is not only aware of our own suffering, but participates in it, so that we can participate in his resurrection and glory.

This homily about the forgiveness we must give ourselves if we are to share in that glory.
