The Baptism of the Lord
With this feast, the Christmas season ends and Jesus’ work in the world begins. The Gospel of Luke (3:21–22) tells us that the Three Persons of God are present at the Baptism of the Lord. Jesus is at prayer as John the Baptist baptizes him, the Holy Spirit descends in the form of a dove, and the voice of God the Father is heard. This theophany, or appearance of God, is a sign that God’s work of redeeming the world is underway.
