Monday, January 08, 2007Baptism of the Lord
Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Baptism of our Lord. This day marks the end of the Christmas season.
And Jesus being baptized, forthwith came out of the water; and lo, the heavens were opened to Him and He saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon Him. And behold a voice from heaven saying, "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased."
