Baptism to Jesus and Us: The Solemnity of the Baptism of Jesus Christ: Monday, January 9th, 2017
Listen to the homily here.
Visit the country of Jordan to visit the river of Jordan
· Saw the point where Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist
· Some thoughts:
o This looks like a ditch…dirty water and every year it loses water from the dead sea
o There is a puddle…
o There is garbage…
o In some ways it felt naturally for humans
· At the same time:
o This is where Jesus Christ was baptized as a human
o The dove came down with the Holy Spirit
o The Father spoke
o God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit on our planet
o In some ways, it was supernaturally
"This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased."
I hope that we are pleased too!
