The Christmas Season ends today with the feast, The Baptism of the Lord. Long after trees have been taken down and the lights and ornaments put in storage for another year, the Catholic Church continues to unpack the meaning of the great feast of the Incarnation. After last week's manifestation in the Epiphany, Jesus is now manifested as the Son of God, ready to begin his mission. We who are baptized like Jesus also have a mission. God is calling us "Beloved". We should listen to him and follow him as best we can. Let us do all we can to live up to this calling. May God bless you and Saint Joseph pray for us!
