Click here to listen to this homily (11 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Today Jesus is Baptized by John and begins his public ministry. The heavens are opened and the Holy Spirit comes down upon Jesus at the Jordan. The Father's voice is heard from Heaven, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." This all happened for each of us at our Baptisms. We are God's beloved Children.
Readings: Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7; Psalm 29; Acts 10:34-38; Matthew 3:13-17.
