Homilies: Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Year C

My homily for the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (Year C) as preached at the 5pm Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were Isaiah 40:1-5, 9-11; Titus 2:11-14, 3:4-7; Luke 3:15-16, 21-22.

“His baptism marks the beginning of the public ministry of Jesus, and inauguration of the messianic age that is the Kingdom of God. We live here and now in the Kingdom, though imperfect, a Kingdom that began there and then on the banks of the River Jordan.”
