Being baptized, we are called to bear witness to Christ and to let our lives echo and reflect his life.
What’s Jesus’ baptism? It’s an entry into grace and community in such a way that it empowers us internally to do what is impossible for us to do by our willpower alone.What we are looking for, and desperately need, is a deeper immersion into the baptism of Jesus, that is, into community and grace.
How do we respond to the coming of Christ? Are we joyful? Do we anticipate His presence? True joy does not consist in possessing many things, but in loving others and in feeling ourselves to be loved by the Lord.
