Click here to download and listen to this homily (7 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Today is the Baptism of the Lord Jesus. He goes down into the Jordan River refreshing all the waters of the Earth. The creator entering his creation. He enters into our sinfulness and our need for repentance and therefor sets us free. Let us remember that we are God's beloved sons and daughters and that the Holy Spirit has come down on us. Renewing our own baptismal promises to reject Satan and all sin and believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, let us act in love as God's beloved children.
Readings: Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7; Psalm 29; Mark 1:7-11
