The Baptism of The Lord – Feast
January 9

The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Messiah.
John answered them all,
“I baptise you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
When all the people were being baptised; Jesus was baptised too. And as He was praying, heaven opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on Him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven:
“You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
