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!
