“This is my beloved Son”
The Christmas Season came to a close yesterday, as we celebrated the Feast of the Baptism of Christ. In the text of this processional antiphon: The soldier baptizes the king; the servant, his Lord; John, the Savior. The water of the Jordan was astounded; the dove bore witness. The father’s voice was heard: “This is my beloved Son.”
We now return to Tempus per Annum — Ordinary Time. Our hearts have been touched by the mystery that God’s beloved Son chose to dwell among us, and still offers us today the hope of redemption and transfiguration.
