FEAST: THE BAPTISM OF THE LORD (January 10th)
Luke 3:2-21 (parallel accounts in Mt 3:1-17/Mk 1:3-11/Jn1:19-28-31-34)
John testified that he baptized with water only but that the one who
came after him, the Messiah, would baptize with the Holy Spirit. In
other words, it would no longer be just symbolic but would be a
sacrament.
(CCC1127)-Celebrated worthily in faith the sacraments confer the grace
that they signify. They are efficacious because in them Christ Himself is
at work: it is He who baptizes, He who acts in His sacraments in order
to communicate the grace that each sacrament signifies. Not only
would it be an outward sign, as ceremonies of the Old Covenant were,
but it would be a powerful inner transformation, brought about by Christ
through the Holy Spirit. At the baptism of Jesus in the Jordon the most
amazing thing happens – the sinless Jesus, God in the flesh, is
baptized by John. WHY? Jesus said, “It must be done, to fulfill all
righteousness.” This could be understood to mean, “Fulfill everything
laid down by God.” This might include: FIRST – Associating fully with
mankind and the Jewish nation and complying with the purification rites
of the Old Covenant; SECOND – Initiating His ministry (he was thirty
years old) with the descent of the Holy Spirit and the verbal confirmation
of His Father from heaven. Heaven made contact with earth, so to
speak and the new creation, the Church, was under way; THIRD –
Jesus was baptized to set the example of baptism, which He would later
teach as a means of being BORN AGAIN for entry into the Kingdom of
God. He also made water in baptism more than a mere symbol; it was
now a sacrament an outward sign that also works an inward grace. The
Trinity is revealed here in a clear and unmistakable demonstration.
Jesus is baptized, the Spirit alights upon Him and the Father’s voice is
heard from heaven. Christian Baptism is solemnly performed in the
name of the three Persons of the Trinity; the FATHER and the SON and
the HOLY SPIRIT. The three Persons of the Trinity work their grace
upon the newly baptized: Jesus in redemption, the Spirit in
regeneration and the Father in declaring us righteous and in adopting
us as his sons. Can anyone contemplate anything more glorious and
profound? (Taken from “CROSSING THE TIBER” by: Stephen R. Ray)
Christ commands baptism in Matthew 28:19 and speaks of its necessity
in Mark 16:15 and John 3:3-5. St. Paul says that baptism is the means
by which Christ sanctifies the Church and cleanses those baptized by
the “BATH OF REGENERATION” in TITUS 3:5 St. Peter describes
the effects of baptismal regeneration in Acts 2: 37-39 (Taken from
“Does the Bible really say that? BY: Patrick Madrid)
SUNDAY, JANUARY 10TH the 2nd Sunday of the
month @ 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm will be a Divine
Mercy Holy Hour with exposition of the Blessed
Sacrament, recitation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
