Saturday, January 9, 2016: (Baptism of Jesus, 5:00 p.m. Mass)
Jesus said: “My people, you are witnessing a presentation of Our Blessed Trinity when I was being baptized in the Jordan River. I was immersed totally in the water while St. John the Baptist prayed over Me. Then you saw in the vision how the Holy Spirit descended upon Me. God the Father was manifested when His voice called out:‘This is My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’ St. John the Baptist was told before when he would see a dove descend on someone, that he would be the true Lamb and Messiah who was promised. This is why St. John the Baptist called out that I was the Lamb of God and to follow Me. He also said that he must decrease while I must increase. This is a spiritual message for all of My followers that I must be first in your life, while you are following My Commandments, and carrying out the mission that I have given you. Think of this scene of the Blessed Trinity when you make the sign of the cross, and when you pray the ‘Glory Be’ prayers. Even when you receive Me in Holy Communion, you also receive My heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit as well because We cannot be separated. This Baptism is also a sacrament that I instituted as it brings new converts into the faith, and it takes away all original and actual sin. Give glory and praise to Me for all of My sacraments that are My gifts to you.”
