Baptism of the Lord

Baptism of the Lord, Master of St. Bartholomew

I particularly like this depiction, as it not only shows God the Father watching (and subsequently speaking), but also the Saints. It demonstrates how dependent we were - and still are - on Our Lord to come down from Heaven and fulfill His Mission. His Baptism was a key moment in that Mission.

O Lord, You redeemed us through Your Precious Blood, the Mission which You formally began with Your Baptism! You didn't have to, but You did so anyway, out of such Great Love for us. How poorly do we repay that Love!

May we all have a blessed Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Blessed be His Name forever)!
