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?

I thank you all for your prays, From asking prays for my son George that he would not have throat cancer to his wife Rachel that her mass on her female organs was not cancer, they both were benign. I thank God for that. Today after the surgery for Rachel, the surgeon said he can just feel the prays offered , when people pray for that person he is operating on. Isn't that amazing. Having faith and believing in the Lord is such a wonderful feeling. I also asked prays for my daughter that she passes her state exam after two tires. The Good Lord as answer all my prays. Thank you for all your prays.

I wanted to thank you for the support and prayers. I emailed for prayer at the beginning of July for my son Maxwell to take feedings by mouth instead of using a nasal tube feeding. I wanted to let you know the nasal tube has been out for 3 weeks now, praise God. Feedings are a struggle. I am learning the virtue of patience. God Bless you.

- ssalvatori

I wrote you again recently asking for prayers for my son who was having more surgery for a very rare cancer. Again he had a wonderful outcome. It was very delicate surgery but completely successful. He went home the next day and feels great. A true miracle!

- Atlseashore7

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.

- D. Sanchez

- Nancy, Charlotte

Thank you and God Bless all of you. Our Lady is a model for all women, and will always be. There is no other woman born of man that can be or should be.
