Baptism of our Lord

Normally the first Sunday after Epiphany (January 6) is considered “Baptism of our Lord”. When the Father spoke at Jesus’ baptism, declaring, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17) Christ’s identity is clearly proclaimed and the divine sonship of Christ is announced in a dramatic way. The participation of all three of the Trinity makes this a profound event.  In connection with the gifts of the Magi and Jesus’ presence at the wedding in Cana when water was turned into wine, three of the great proclamations of the Christian Faith are here brought together.
