My homily for the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Year C, as preached during the live-streamed 9.30am Mass from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.
The readings proclaimed were Isaiah 40: 1-5, 9-11; Titus 2:11-14, 3:4-7; Luke 3:15-16, 21-22. Today’s Psalm is Psalm 103: “Oh, bless the Lord, my soul!”
“God’s glory is revealed on the banks of the Jordan, and God’s gracious gift of self for the salvation of us, God’s people, is once again portrayed for us who are the beneficiaries of God’s generosity. As our Christmas season comes to a close, let’s not forget what we have celebrated over these days: God’s salvation is offered to us.”
