Baptism Of Jesus (1)

Extract
Jesus' Baptism

 After John baptised Jesus in the River Jordan, the heavens opened and the Holy Spirit descending on Him like a dove. A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son; in him, I take great delight”. (Mathew 3: 16-17)

Thought

Jesus’ baptism was an amazing launch to his ministry; an occasion when God the Father (the voice from heaven), God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit (the dove) made themselves known together.

Reflection

May my yearning to meet God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit never fade.

A Prayer – Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of Your Divine Love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created,
and You shall renew the face of the earth.

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit
instructed the hearts of the faithful.
Grant, that by the same Spirit we may be truly wise
and ever rejoice in His consolation.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
