Baptism of the Lord

January 10 is Baptism of the Lord Sunday.  Having celebrated the birth of our Savior, we now turn our attention towards key events in Jesus’ life that help us understand his identity and mission.  In Jesus’ baptism, God announces his divine sonship in a dramatic way:  “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased” (Luke 3:22).  This Sunday we will reflect on this and on our own identity as God’s beloved children.
