Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection    

          In order to prepare people for the coming of Jesus, John the Baptist invited them to repent and be forgiven. The water of the Jordan River symbolized the cleansing of sin that baptism brought to the believer. It also symbolized the renewal of life after being parched in the desert, as John was, as Isaiah was, as the people in exile were, as we still can be today.

    A fin de preparar a las personas para la venida de Jesús, Juan el Bautista las invita a arrepentirse y a recibir el perdón. Las aguas del rio Jordán simbolizaban la limpieza del pecado que el bautismo le daba al creyente. También simbolizaban una vida renovada después de atravesar la sequía del desierto, tal como sucedió con Juan, con Isaías, con el pueblo exilado y aún con nosotros hoy.
