Happy Feast of the Baptism of the Lord!
I am the Lord, I have called you in to righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.
Is 43: 6-7
Today we conclude the Season of Christmas. As all things in 2020, it was not a normal celebration of this Holy Season as much as we have been accustomed to over the years of our lives. This was a season of much more reflection and contemplation. Hopefully it was a season of peace.
Today’s Feast reminds us of who we are who have been baptized into Christ. As Isaiah the Prophet stated above, “I have given you as a covenant to the people”. Baptism has made us other Christs! What an awesome mystery! The Father wants to say about us “Listen to him or her!”
A better world begins when we live our Baptism!
We enter Ordinary Time until Ash Wednesday.
