The Baptism of The Lord - January 13, 2019



The Baptism of the Lord Feast Day commemorates the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River by John the Baptist. The Baptism of Jesus manifests the very life of the Holy Trinity to the whole world and opens the door, through Jesus Christ, into a “communion”, a participation in the life of the Trinity through Baptism into His Body, the Church.


John the Baptist preached a baptism for the forgiveness of sins and in so doing he was preparing the way for the Lord.  This event concluded with the heavens opening, a dove-like descent of the Holy Spirit, and a voice from Heaven saying, "This is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3 16-17)
