Baptism of the Lord


The 8th of January is the Solemnity of the Baptism of the Lord.

Connected with the Solemnity of the Epiphany, both feasts are the biblical manifestation of Jesus as the Son of God. After Saint John the Baptist baptised Jesus, the voice of God was heard “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” The earth’s waters were sanctified at Jesus baptism, which gave the water the power to beget sons of God by Baptism. We become Christian by imitating Jesus and be baptised, which is the first sacrament of initiation into the Church. This feast is the end of the Christmas season on the liturgical calendar.

Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.
