Being beloved – a foundational message
Readings: Is 40,1-5.9-11; Ps 104,1-2.3-4.24-25.27-28.29-30; Ti 2, 11-14.3,4-7; Lk 3, 15-16.21-22
The word of God for us on the Feast of the Lord’s baptism presents to us foundational message of being beloved by God. What God says about His only begotten Son is what He says about each one of us. We ought to listen to that life-giving word: You are a beloved son/daughter of God, chosen and favoured! This is the positive foundation with which we are to begin our spiritual journeys.
