The Baptism of the Lord
Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Baptism of Our Lord. This brings us to the end of the Christmas season. This is the second manifestation (Theophany) of Our Lord or epiphany which occurred on the occasion of His baptism in the Jordan. Jesus descended into the River to sanctify its waters and to give us the dignity
to be sons of God. This is an important event in which the entire Trinity intervenes.
The baptism of John was a preparation for the coming of the Christ ( The anointed). Was the baptism of repentance what induced mankind to recognize their sins and change their lives? Christ did not need the baptism by
John on the way to repentance, although He appeared in the "substance of our flesh", He was absolutely sinless
and impeccable. He conferred upon the water the power of the true Baptism, the baptism in Spirit which would
remove all the sins of the world: "Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him Who takes away the sin of the world."
Many signs that happened in Christ's baptism are symbolical and we live it in our own Baptism: The heavens are
open that show us that we are all heirs of the future Kingdom, the Holy Spirit descends to fill our hearts with
knowledge and sanctity, and we can hear the voice of our Heavenly Father saying that we are His beloved daughters and sons by adoption.
The same Spirit, that descended on the water of the River Jordan blew over the waters during the first creation
(Gen 1:2). Therefore, the Baptism in the Jordan presents yet another truth: that Jesus has started a new creation.
He is the second man (1 Cor 15:47) or the last Adam (1 Cor 15:45), that comes to repair the first Adam’s guilt.
He does this as the Lamb of God that takes away our sins. ‘Looking at the events in light of the Cross and Resurrection, the Christian people realized what happened: Jesus loaded the burden of all mankind’s guilt upon His
shoulders; he bore it down into the depths of the Jordan. He inaugurated his public activity by stepping into the
place of sinners’ (Joseph Ratzinger, Jesus of Nazareth,

St. Vincent de Paul:
After Jesus was baptized, he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and a voice was heard, “This is my
beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” As we give
to the poor, we also can hear these same words.
As you help those who are suffering, know in your
heart the truth of the words, “You are my beloved in
whom I am well pleased”.
You can help through monetary donations, bringing food

Feliz Bautismo del Señor!
Hoy la Iglesia celebra la Solemnidad del Bautismo de Nuestro Señor. Con esta solemnidad estamos llegando al fin del
tiempo de Navidad. Esta es la segunda manifestación (Teofanía) de Cristo o podríamos llamarla otra Epifanía la cual ocurre con ocasión de Su bautismo en el Jordán. Jesús desciende en el rio para santificar sus aguas y para darnos la dignidad
de hijos de Dios. Importante acontecimiento en el que interviene la Santa Trinidad.
El bautismo de Juan fue una preparación para la venida del Cristo ( el Ungido). Era un bautismo de arrepentimiento y que
llevaba a la humanidad a la confesión de sus pecados para cambiar sus vidas. Cristo no necesitaba el bautismo de Juan con
intensión de arrepentimiento a pesar de aparecer en la “sustancia de nuestra carne” Él era absolutamente libre de pecado e
impecable. El confiere sobre el agua el poder del verdadero bautismo, el bautismo en Espíritu el cual remueve todos los
pecados del mundo: “Este es el Cordero de Dios, que quita los pecados del mundo”.
Muchos signos que suceden en el Bautismo de Cristo son simbólicos y nosotros los vivimos en nuestro propio bautismo:
Los cielos se abren figura que nos muestra que somos herederos de un Reino futuro, el Espíritu desciende para llenar nuestros corazones con conocimiento y santidad y podemos escuchar la voz de nuestro Padre Celestial diciendo que somos Sus
amados hijas e hijos por adopción. El mismo Espíritu, que descendió sobre las aguas del Rio Jordán soplo sobre las aguas
durante la primera creación ( Gen 1:2).
Por tanto, el bautismo en el Jordán sin embargo otra verdad: Jesús ha empezado una nueva creación. Él es el segundo hombre ( 1Cor 15:47) o el ultimo Adam ( 1Cor 15:45), que viene a reparar la culpa del primer Adam. El hace esto como Cordero de Dios que quita nuestros pecados. Viendo lo ocurrido a la luz de la Cruz y Resurrección, el mundo Cristiano pude
darse cuenta que ha pasado: Jesús cargo el peso de la culpa de la humanidad sobre sus hombros; El los cargo hasta lo más
profundo del Jordán. El inauguro su vida pública tomando el lugar de los pecadores”
( Joseph Ratzinger, Jesús de Nazaret, Bloomsbury 2007, p18)
Feliz Bautismo del Señor!

Hay momentos en la vida que no tienen respuesta ni explicación; sucesos, acontecimientos, experiencias vividas,
tantas cosas que no sabemos por qué suceden o por qué
las debemos vivir. Muchas veces nos quedamos estancados buscando las respuestas y no avanzamos, porque nos
da miedo continuar en medio de la incertidumbre que nos
produce el no entender y no aceptar esas cosas que nos
han de pasar.
Amores que llegan y se van sin avisar, heridas, vacíos,
enfermedades, caídas, pérdidas, caminos que se abren,
puertas que se cierran, circunstancias que afrontar, decisiones que tomar. todo ello invade nuestra mente, llenándola de preguntas inciertas que no encuentran respuestas,
nos llenan de angustia, atentan contra nuestra fe, se convierten en la piedra en el zapato que no nos deja seguir.
Muchas de estas preguntas se convierten en cadenas que
nos han de esclavizar, nos aferramos a ellas, y aunque
quizás respondamos algunas, formulamos otras, porque
nos hace falta buscar excusas que nos torturen y nos hagan dudar, fabricando
temores que nos arrebatan la paz.
Hay quienes discuten
con Dios por la suerte
que les ha de tocar, le
culpan de todo, le pierden la Fe, se alejan de
Él, tan sólo porque no
entienden lo que es vivir y creen que hemos sido creados
para sufrir.
No busquemos respuestas que quizás no llegarán, hay
cosas que suceden porque así deben ser, aunque no entendamos el porque y sintamos que no tenemos las suficientes fuerzas de asumirlas y continuar.
No hay más opciones que vivir, seguir, creer, no perder la
esperanza de que vendrán tiempos mejores que compensarán las luchas que hemos asumido valientemente, sin
renegar por todo, sin rendirnos, sin renunciar.
Alguna vez leí o escuché: Si las cosas tienen solución por
qué me preocupo, si se pueden arreglar. y si no la tienen,
por qué he de angustiarme, sino hay más nada que hacer
ni otra opción que tomar, que seguir, avanzar .
Por eso, más que buscar respuestas, démoslas nosotros
mismos con nuestro vivir y actuar, que quien nos encuentre en el camino descubra en nosotros que hay un Dios de
amor que existe y que se manifiesta en lo más sencillo y
pequeño, aún en todo aquello que no entendemos y que a
veces nos hace dudar.
No hay más respuesta que la fe que nos da fuerzas y nos
llena de paz.
