The Lord was baptized, not to be cleansed himself, but to cleanse the waters, so that those waters, cleansed by the flesh of Christ which knew no sin, might have the power of baptism.
“My God, how great you are, how wonderful in all your works!
Teach me your will that I may begin and end all my actions for your greater glory.”
St. John Neumann
“The accidents of life separate us from our dearest friends, but let us not despair.
God is like a looking glass in which souls see each other.
The more we are united to Him by love,
the nearer we are to those who belong to Him.”
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
