Pope: Immersion of Jesus with People and Father
The Gospel of January 13, 2019 – The Baptism of the Lord – shows the relationship of Jesus with the people and the Father, explained Pope Francis.
His comments came before praying the noonday Angelus January 13 with the pilgrims gather in St. Peter’s Square. The Gospel of the day comes from Luke 3:15-16.21-22:
The people were filled with expectation,and all were asking in their heartswhether John might be the Christ.John answered them all, saying,“I am baptizing you with water,but one mightier than I is coming.I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit
