The Baptism of the Lord

Today’s celebration of the baptism of the Lord, is another example of his humility. The Son of God, in order to participate in all that is human, also participated in the ritual of baptism. The sinless one, participated in the cleansing waters of baptism, not to exalt himself as having something greater than all others, rather, to offer to the world the example of humbly accepting his filial relationship with God, the Father.
