Text Box: BAPTISM OF THE LORD - 
Sunday Jan. 11th.  
       During the first four centuries of Christianity, the Catholic Church celebrated three primary Feasts. These were the Feasts of: the Epiphany, Easter and Pentecost. In the Eastern Church, Epiphany meant celebrating: the birth of Jesus, His Baptism and the Wedding at Cana. Since 376 A.D., the Western Church separated the Feast of Christmas, which is celebrated on December 25th as the day of the birth of Jesus, from the Feast of the Epiphany that is the day that remembers the visit of the Magi. Epiphany was separated in order to emphasize that God revealed Himself to the Gentiles. Today's Feast, following the tradition of the early Church, is the celebration of the Baptism of the Lord Jesus. This special feast teaches us that, through Jesus, God opened the door to the Kingdom of Heaven to all those who would hear Him.
 

TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS  
      The celebration of Christmas was stretched even further than a week.  The twelve days of Christmas, secularized in a popular song, was an ancient, sacred, and festive celebration of Christmastime.  The twelve days began on December 25, Christmas, and ended on January 6, the feast of the Epiphany, which is still a major feast of the Incarnation.
       Christmas Time is over at  the  Baptism of the Lord, January 11, 2009. During Sat. January 10, 5.00pm & January 11th, 8.30am & 10.30am we will renew our Baptismal Promises. Monday, January 12th will be the first day of the Ordinary Time.


Text Box: Sunday Scripture
          The fullness of God's Spirit was upon Jesus.
The Spirit of God moved and worked in the lives of prophets and Saints. But the fullness of God's Spirit rested upon his Son, Jesus. The power and presence of the Holy Spirit was evident in the life of Jesus. When we open our lives to Jesus, we receive the same Spirit that strengthened and sustained Jesus during His life and ministry. Isaiah prophesies that God will send His servant, on whom God's Spirit will rest. In our reading from Acts, Peter confirms that God's Spirit was upon Jesus. In the Gospel, the Spirit of God descended on Jesus at His baptism. A voice from heaven declared that Jesus was God's beloved Son, in whom He was well pleased.
