“God is always on the side of the oppressed, of the ones feeling lost or discarded, of those who are abandoned or disregarded. God always answers their cry by sending someone. This is the whole Bible story and it is our story still today. This is where we enter.”
~Sr. Carmen Sammut, MSOLA

In the readings for the feast of the Baptism of our Lord, we hear that God has chosen a special, precious one who is beloved of God as a light for the nations. With the benefit of thousands of years of history, we recognize this one as Jesus.

Do we also recognize ourselves in this call as cherished daughters and sons of God? We are used to praying, to pleading, to needing. Do we also allow ourselves to know that we, you and I, are meant to be the answer to another’s prayer?
