DOM / SUN
Dear Faithful of St. Mark,
Gospel Mk. 1, 7-11
Today is the last Sunday of Christmas Time.
And after having celebrated the Epiphany of the
Lord and the coming of the three wise men, today
once more, God manifests Himself in the baptism of
Our Lord Jesus Christ. “On coming up out of the
water he saw the heavens being torn open and the
Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him. And a
voice came from the heavens, “You are my beloved
Son; with you I am well pleased.”
Let me share with you from the sermon of Saint
Proclus, bishop of Constantinople about the baptism
of the Lord in the sermon 7 in sancta Theophania,
1-3: PG 65, 758-759. “For on this day land and sea
share between them the grace of the Savior, and the
whole world is filled with joy. Today’s feast of the
Epiphany manifests even more wonders than the
feast of Christmas. On the feast of the Savior’s
birth, the earth rejoiced because it bore the Lord in
a manger; but on today’s feast of the Epiphany it is
the sea that is glad and leaps for joy; the sea is glad
because it receives the blessing of holiness in the
river Jordan. At Christmas we saw a weak baby,
giving proof of our weakness. In today’s feast, we
see a perfect man, hinting at the perfect Son who
proceeds from the all-perfect Father. At Christmas
the King puts on the royal robe of his body; at
Epiphany the very source enfolds and, as it were,
clothes the river. Come then and see new and
astounding miracles: the Sun of righteousness
washing in the Jordan, fire immersed in water, God
sanctified by the ministry of man. Today every
creature shouts in resounding song: Blessed is he
who comes in the name of the Lord. Blessed is he
who comes in every age, for this is not his first
coming.”
Also, I cannot let the opportunity go without
acknowledging our angels who made possible that
many families in Saint Mark had a Christmas filled
with blessings. My most heartfelt gratitude goes to
the following parishes and institutions: St. John of
the Cross, Our Lady of the Wayside and book fair
captains Cheryl Demeter, Emily Paine, Jane
Stryzyzynski, St. Timothy, St. Maria
Goretti, St. Helen, Jewel Osco (Luigi) and to
all the people who donated food for our food
pantry. A millions thanks and a Happy New
Year.

San Marcos:

Evangelio Mc 1, 7-11
Hoy es nuestro último domingo en el tiempo de
Navidad. Y después de haber celebrado la epifanía del
Señor y la venida de los Reyes Magos, hoy nuevamente Dios se manifiesta en el bautismo de Nuestro
Señor Jesucristo. “Al salir Jesús del agua, vio que los
cielos se rasgaban y que el Espíritu, en figura de
paloma, descendía sobre él. Se oyó entonces una
voz del cielo que decía: “Tú eres mi Hijo amado; yo
tengo en ti mis complacencias”.
Les comparto del Sermón de San Proclo, Obispo
de Constantinopla sobre el bautismo del Señor en el
Sermón 7 en la santa Teofanía, 1-3: PG 65, 758-759.
“Y así, hoy, tierra y mar se han repartido entre sí la
gracia del Salvador, y el universo entero se halla
bañado en alegría; hoy es precisamente el día que
añade prodigios mayores y más crecidos a los de
la precedente solemnidad. Pues en la solemnidad
anterior, que era la del nacimiento del Salvador,
se alegraba la tierra, porque sostenía al Señor en
el pesebre; en la presente festividad, en cambio, que
es la de las Teofanías, el mar es quien salta y
se estremece de júbilo; y lo hace porque en medio
del Jordán encontró la bendición santificadora. En
la solemnidad anterior se nos mostraba un niño débil,
que atestiguaba nuestra propia imperfección; en
cambio, en la festividad de hoy se nos presenta ya
como un hombre perfecto, mostrando que procede,
como perfecto que es, de quien también lo es. En
aquel caso, el Rey vestía la púrpura de su cuerpo; en
éste, la fuente rodea como recubre al río. Atended,
pues, a estos nuevos y estupendos prodigios. El Sol
de justicia que se purifica en el Jordán, el fuego
sumergido en el agua, Dios santificado por ministerio
de un hombre. Hoy la creación entera resuena de
himnos: Bendito el que viene en nombre del Señor.
Bendito el que viene en todo momento: pues no es
ahora la primera vez.”
También no puedo dejar pasar la oportunidad
sin reconocer a nuestros ángeles que hicieron posible
que muchas familias de San Marcos tuvieran una
navidad llena de bendiciones. Mi más profundo
agradecimiento es para las siguientes parroquias e
instituciones: San Juan de la Cruz, Nuestra Señora del
Camino y sus capitanes de la feria del libro Cheryl
Demeter, Emily Paine, Jane Strzyzynski, San
Timoteo, Santa María Goretti, Santa Helena,
Jewel Osco (Luigi) y a todas las personas que
nos regalaron alimentos para nuestro depósito
de comida. Un millón de gracias. Feliz Año
Nuevo.
