Baptism of the Lord

January 9, 2011

PRIEST, PROPHET AND KING

This Sunday, we must all ask ourselves, “what does my baptism mean to me?”

For the best understanding, I recommend reading 1 Peter and Lumen Gentium 10-13, 34-36)

Combined, these readings tell us we are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own.   And each in your own way you share the priestly, prophetic and kingly office of Christ and carry on his mission in the world.

That mission, by the way, is holiness – to love God and your neighbor.

So join us as we explore how we are priests, prophets and kings, and be sure to meditate on the readings listed above.
