baptism of our lord

As we mark the Baptism of our Lord, we're reminded that we are marked in our Baptism as well.
As Jesus stands in the Jordan River in our place to begin His ministry, we remember that He took our place on the cross as well, to live our life and to die our death.  That's why you were marked with a cross in your Baptism, upon your forehead and upon your heart, to mark you as one of those claimed by Christ the crucified. And just as Jesus rose up out of the water, just as He rose up out of the grave, you will rise to newness of life as well.
