This is a praise report. I just wanted to update you since you have been praying for my 22 year old nephew that is a heroin addict. I think a miracle is happening. Mikey is still in rehab, and he now carries a rosary around his arm,
and prays the rosary non-stop. His father is taking him to mass this comming Sunday and than is returning him to rehab. He is through the detoxification process. But he still has the strong craving for the drug. They are trying to teach him coping skills Thank you for all your prayers.

REFLECTIONS

“Jesus’ Baptism”

Why did Jesus, the sinless one sent from the Father in heaven, submit himself to John’s baptism? John preached a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke 3:3). In this humble submission we see a foreshadowing of the “baptism” of Jesus bloody death upon the cross. Jesus’ baptism is the acceptance and the beginning of his mission as God’s suffering Servant (Isaiah 52:13-15; 53:1-12). He allowed himself to be numbered among sinners. Jesus submitted himself entirely to his Father’s will. Out of love he consented to this baptism of death for the remission of our sins. Do you know the joy of trust and submission to God?
