Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

Today, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, celebrates the anointing of Jesus with the Spirit and his power. He is proclaimed Messiah. He then goes about his ministry doing good, working the signs that make him known as the Servant of God. He is the one who brings good news to the poor and tells of salvation. Through our Baptism each one of us becomes a child of God, linked to Christ, a dwelling place of the Spirit and a member of the Body of Christ, the People of God, the Church.
