Gospel Mark 1:7-11
This is what John the Baptist proclaimed:
"One mightier than I is coming after me.
I am not worthy to stoop and loosen the thongs of his sandals.
I have baptized you with water;
he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee
and was baptized in the Jordan by John.
On coming up out of the water he saw the heavens being torn open
and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him.
And a voice came from the heavens,
"You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased."
+Prayer: Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful and kindle in them, the fire of your Love, send forth your Spirit and they shall be created, and Thou shall renew the face of the earth.
Change: Beginning this week, on the website you will see; "Sisters Lectio." The only real thing changing is that, the sisters will be sharing their Lectio each Sunday and I will be stepping back for awhile. You are going to Love the change, as you hear Lectio from the hearts of the sisters. We all pray differently just as we all have a very different relationship with our Father in Heaven and Jesus our Lord. I will be preparing for an upcoming 30 day retreat that I have longed for, for many years. Thank you for your prayers and be assured that I will be carrying you in my heart into this wilderness encounter with our Lord. May God Bless You in this New Year of Grace!
