Baptism of the Lord

Posted on Updated on

Readings: Isaiah 42: 1-4, 6-7; Acts: 10:34-38; Mark 1:7-11

Originally delivered on January 10, 1988

On this Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Fr. Healy invites us to reflect on what it means to us to be initiated into an exclusive club of some type. What about our initiation into the Church?  Indeed, everyone is welcomed into the Body of Christ. To be a member of Christ’s Church, we are called to look outward, embracing our sisters and brothers.  To be a Catholic is to be a part of the world.  We are called to work to bring the vision of Christ to our world.
