Is 42:1–4, 6–7 or Is 55:1–11 / Acts 10:34–38 or
1 Jn 5:1–9 / Mk 1:7–11
A lay-minister acquaintance of mine keeps a framed copy of
his baptismal certificate on his office wall. He says, “My
diplomas show that I’ve learned a lot of things about theology, liturgy, and Scripture. That’s great, but my experience
of Christ and my call to ministry come out of my baptism,
and I need to remind myself of that every now and then.”
I was intrigued by his words. Baptism is the initiation
into a community whose sole purpose is to worship and
serve the Lord using the gifts God has given us. Most of us
were baptized as infants, and we rarely take the time to reflect on what we’re called to do by God.
In baptism, we’re given the grace to live a transformed
life following the commandments to love God and neighbor.
How many times have we fallen short and needed to reconcile with God?
Mark’s story of Jesus’ baptism is a scant four verses.
Jesus is baptized and hears God tell him, “You are my beloved Son.” After that, Jesus prevails against temptation and
sets about his own mission without looking back. Our baptism gives us the grace to do the same, whatever mission we
are called to.
Two good spiritual exercises for this week would be to
ask God whether we’re doing what he has asked of us and to
reflect on the ways in which our lives have brought us closer
to God or taken us away from him.
Then it’s up to us to continue to serve God in the grace of
baptism and in the company of the people who share this
faith with us.

Cuando se planta un césped nuevo, debe regarse constantemente. Los jardineros dicen que esto “teje” el césped
al suelo. Lo mismo sucede cuando se injerta una rama a un
árbol: el cataplasma que los une debe estar húmedo en
todo momento. El agua es lo que mantiene unidas a las
células de nuestro cuerpo. Con razón las religiones de todas las épocas y culturas han usado tanto este símbolo.
Cuando Jesús se sumerge en el Jordán para ser bautizado,
se “teje” a todo aquello que lo precedía. Al sumergirse en
el Jordán, se hizo uno con el pueblo de Israel que había
cruzado el río para llegar a su Tierra Prometida. Junto a
Juan Bautista, Cristo se tejió a la tradición profética que
presagiaba la venida del Reino de Dios. Jesús se había
convertido plenamente en humano en las aguas del vientre
de María y al participar del rito del Bautismo del arrepentimiento, se sintió identificado con nuestra frágil y pecaminosa humanidad. Por las aguas del Bautismo Cristo continúa injertando nuevos miembros a su Cuerpo, la Iglesia;
gracias a nuestro destino de vida eterna, por estas aguas
somos limpiados del pecado y recibimos la promesa de la
gracia. Para nosotros, como para Jesús, las aguas bautismales también inauguran nuestra misión de proclamar la
Buena Nueva.
