Reflection for Feast of the Baptism of the Lord
Theme: JESUS IS BAPTIZED
By: Sr. J. K. Osiyemi EHJ
Reflection for Sunday January 9 2022
John recognized the truth about Jesus and acknowledged him as someone who is more powerful than him, who he is unfit to undo the strap of his sandals and who will baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire. It is very important to be baptized and to help people grow up in the faith. As I had been taught, Christ was baptized not to be made holy by the water, but to make the water holy, and by his cleansing to purify the waters he touched. Knowing that baptism is the first step towards salvation, how many people have I brought to this great Sacrament?
LET US PRAY
God in heaven, after the baptism of Jesus, you made the Holy Spirit to descend on him, and solemnly declared him as your beloved Son, may I who have been reborn of water and the Holy Spirit be always pleasing to you in my words, thoughts and deeds. Amen.
