The Baptism of the Lord

A Note from the Pastor

Fr. Gerard Lecomte, CJM

The Baptism of the Lord is a Christmas feast, a feast of the epiphany of God in human flesh and blood. I hope we will sing at least some carols this weekend. At our baptism we were told, “you have become a new creation and have clothed yourself in Christ.” Each Sunday we come here a new creation, transformed, even if we’re not conscious of it. Baptism has created us anew, has given us new life. Also, no matter what we may be wearing, we are clothed in Christ. In what we do and what others see, we hope to show that we have put on Christ. On this feast of the Baptism of the Lord, let us appreciate the new creation we have become.
