Mk 1: 7-11

He proclaimed, “The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.

And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”

On You My Favor Rests

Once again we experience a transition weekend in our faith communities. Tomorrow we celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord. Monday brings the celebration of Jesus’s baptism by John at the River Jordan. On Tuesday we begin the first period of Ordinary Time in 2018.

St. Ignatius Loyola always invites us during times of transition to review the past and then to look forward. What special personal and family events were important for me over Christmas? How were my relationships strengthened with family and friends? What am I looking forward to now in 2018?

When during the holidays did God’s grace come alive in a particular way? How is God moving in my heart right now as the new year begins? Can I imagine how God is inviting me to use my gifts and talents in some new way? Or simply to put fresh energy into the familiar routine that January now brings?

Find some quiet time to ponder whatever questions and possibilities emerge in your heart and soul. Be grateful…and look ahead with hope!
