What the Baptism of Jesus Means to Us

Fr. Tom Euteneuer has a nice explanation of today’s feast day, The Baptism of the Lord.

Some choice quotes …

The feast of the Baptism of the Lord which we will celebrate this Sunday is one of the greatest feast days in the Church’s calendar but also one of the least understood.

We look at this feast day … as the celebration of the consecration of His human nature for the mission of salvation

Immediately after … the High Priest went out into the desert to engage in mortal combat with the devil and began to systematically undo his reign of terror over the whole human race.

On this special feast day, let us rejoice that … we are consecrated for the most important mission of all — salvation.

All He requires of us is that we “remain in him as that anointing has taught us” (1 Jn 2:27)

Indeed!
