Baptism of Jesus: Betrothal to Humanity

While praying the Mysteries of Light of the Holy Rosary on the way to work this morning, and meditating on the 1st Mystery of Light, the Baptism of the Lord in the Jordan River, I got a distinct inspiration:

Our Lord considered his Baptism as a betrothal of himself to us, in and accepting all of our misery.  In this deeply loving gesture, his Father was very, very pleased.  

What love!  What commitment!  What true integrity!
