I know that we had the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus as a young man ready to begin his life of preaching, healing, and saving us, but I am still in the Christmas season and thinking how helpless and vulnerable Jesus is as an infant. He cannot talk; he cannot walk; as any baby, he cries, needs to be changed and fed. It is a great mystery and one that I love to contemplate for Jesus came to be like us in all things except sin. He comes out of love for us.
Let us take time today to thank Jesus for coming to us then and now. He is present to each one of us and being human as well as divine, Jesus really understands us, loves us, and wants to be with us.
