Dear Friend in the Lord,

Christ-Centred Living: Today’s Gospel episode captures the Baptism of Jesus as the Lord and Saviour of the world.  Our greatest gift is the divine gift of faith in the Good News of Salvation.  The deepest way to live our lives is to be Christ-centred in all our joys, pains, challenges of life.  Let us be grateful to God at all times.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 1:7-11

In the course of his preaching John said, ‘After me is coming someone who is more powerful than me, and I am not fit to kneel down and undo the strap of his sandals. I have baptised you with water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.’

     It was at this time that Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptised in the Jordan by John. And at once, as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit, like a dove, descending on him. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you.’
