Only if I serve my neighbour can my eyes be opened to what God does for me and how much he loves me. - Pope Benedict XVI

MANIFESTING THE SPIRIT  The Christmas season closes this Sunday with the  Baptism of the Lord. This feast is a sister to last week’s feast of the Epiphany. Each of them celebrates an “epiphany,” or a manifestation of the Spirit of God in  Jesus—first in his birth, and now at his baptism.   The divine Spirit is manifested in all of the scriptures for this feast. Psalm 104 highlights the Spirit of God  creating and renewing the earth, while the reading from Isaiah describes God restoring Israel. In Luke’s account of the baptism of the Lord the Holy Spirit descends upon  Jesus. And the letter to Titus reminds us that the Holy Spirit was “richly poured out” on us also, through the “bath of rebirth” (Titus 3:5, 6). Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
