Newsletter January 12th 2020 ( The Baptism of our Lord)

A thought for today

  • The baptism of Jesus is a moment of special grace in our story of       salvation. Not only did he join us in our sinful state, but the Father and the Spirit are seen and heard to be there with him. The gospel uses the simple phrase that “the heavens were opened,” but it is a powerful statement. Later on, when Jesus completed his life-journey on Calvary, we read how “the veil of the Temple was rent in two.” Now at last we were free to enter the Holy of Holies. Today’s gospel is the beginning of a journey, which, through our own baptism, each of us is asked to   travel. It is a journey full of purpose.
