The First Luminous Mystery
THE BAPTISM OF JESUS
“The Baptism in the Jordan is first of all a mystery of light. Here, as Christ descends into the waters, the innocent one who became “sin” for our sake, the heavens open wide and the voice of the Father declares him the beloved Son, while the Spirit descends on him to invest him with the mission which he is to carry out.” (Saint Pope John Paul 11)
Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him…. After Jesus was baptized, he came up out of the water, and the heavens opened up for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending upon him like a dove. A voice came from the heavens, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” (Matt. 3:13,17)
Ideas for use: Personal meditation, Eucharistic Adoration, prayer groups, staff retreat, ministry fair, hospital visitations, RCIA, etc.
