Daily Gospel Reflection – The Baptism of the Lord

Daily Gospel Reflection – The Baptism of the Lord

Bishop Barron’s Sunday Sermon 
Priests, Prophets, and Kings

Friends, when we are baptized, we are grafted onto Christ, who has anointed us all as priests, prophets, and kings. Let's live out that identity.

The Baptism of the Lord 
Gospel: Lk 3:15-16, 21-22 

The people were filled with expectation, and all were asking in their hearts whether 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 and fire.” 

After all the people had been baptized and Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” 
*United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 


Bishop Robert Barron

Friends, this great feast of the Baptism of the Lord is a good time to reflect on the significance of the sacrament of Baptism. One of the earliest descriptions of Baptism in our tradition is vitae spiritualis ianua, which means "the door to the spiritual life." 

To grasp the full meaning of this is to understand something decisive about Christianity. For Christianity is not primarily about "becoming a good person" or "doing the right thing." Let’s face it, anyone—pagan, Muslim, Jew, nonbeliever—can be any of those things. 

To be a Christian is to be grafted on to Christ and hence drawn into the very dynamics of the inner life of God. We don’t speak simply of following or imitating Jesus. We speak of becoming a member of his Mystical Body. 

Do you see why it is so important that we are baptized "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit"? For Baptism draws us into the relationship between the Father and the Son—which is to say, in the Holy Spirit. Baptism, therefore, is all about grace—our incorporation, through the power of God’s love, into God’s own life.
