A Poem by Bonnie Kearney, RSCJ

Sacred Jordan River

John and Jesus

It all began in water

The two leaping and dipping within the


Later John pled no contest

As he poured the water over Jesus.

For even then he knew

He would not walk on it,

Transform it into wine,

Release it from his pierced heart;

But in that moment, at the Jordan, the water made them

One on the road to redemption.
