The Baptism of Our LordMatthew 3:13-17
In today’s gospel, Jesus comes to John the Baptist for Baptism. John feels unworthy, but Jesus assures him it is necessary for “righteousness.” John consents and God the Father speaks, “This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Our virtue for today is humility. We see this shining forth in John, and in Jesus, and in God the Father. Take a moment to contemplate this virtue in each person of the gospel today.
