The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

January 12, 2014

CHOICE AND COMPARTMENTALIZATION

Our first reading from Isaiah speaks about two people:  the servant, which we could interpret as Christ.  And You, which is Israel – the people of God.  In other words, You are called to be a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind and free the prisoners.

Luke tells us in our second readings that this responsibility is open to anyone who recognizes the Lord and acts uprightly.

And the Gospel recalls Christ’s baptism, which opened the door for our own adoption into the Kingdom.

And so today, we will open the doors to our own understanding about our baptism. . .
