Baptism is only the Beginning

This week’s celebration the baptism of Jesus by John in the Jordan River reminds us of the implications of our own baptism. The following thoughts by Veronica Lawson RSM on the story of Jesus’ baptism from Mark 1: 5-11, are offered here to enrich prayer and reflection in the coming week.

The baptism into which we have all been invited and welcomed calls us to promote justice and truth. Let us be inspired on this feast to actively participate in this ongoing work.
