Friends of the Rosary:
Yesterday, in the Gospel, John the Baptist saw and testified that Christ is the Son of God. (Jn 1:29-34) “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven and remain upon him.”
This way, John the Baptist gave witness to the role of the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ baptism.
“He [Jesus Christ] is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.”
With the Baptism, we all Christians are drawn out of this fallen world into a new world.
It’s the sacrament of our birth in the spiritual life. The Eucharist and the other sacraments nourish our life in communion with Jesus.
We pray today, Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States, the Joyful Mysteries.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
