Jan. 9, 2017 (Feast of the Baptism of the Lord)

With this Feast, the Christmas Season comes to a close and Ordinary Time begins. This Feast gives us pause to remember our own baptism. At that baptism, our Godmother placed a white garment on us that symbolized our soul to “keep it free from stain” of sin. At the funeral mass, a Pall, another white cloth is placed on the casket to remind us of the baptismal garment. We, too, look to hear that we are beloved sons and daughters of the Father in whom He is “well pleased.”
