SUNDAY’S GOSPEL—January 9, 2022 – Baptism of the Lord

Luke 3:15–16, 21–22

The story of Jesus’ baptism in Sunday’s Gospel shows the mystery of the Blessed Trinity. After John baptizes Jesus in the Jordan, God the Father announces to the crowd that Jesus is his beloved Son, and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove settles upon Jesus. Baptism gives us new life as adopted children of God and gives all the gift of that Holy Spirit. Living the Gospel helps those who follow Jesus to witness to the world that the Good News is for everyone.

See The Gospel at Home (English and Spanish) for suggested family activities and discussion starters related to this Sunday’s Gospel.
