Baptism of the Lord - Feast

Book of Isaiah


Thus says the LORD: All you who are thirsty, come to the water! You who have no money, come, receive grain and eat; come, without paying and without cost, drink wine and milk!
Why spend your money for what is not bread; your wages for what fails to satisfy? Heed me, and you shall eat well, you shall delight in rich fare.
Come to me heedfully, listen, that you may have life. I will renew with you the everlasting covenant, the benefits assured to David.
As I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander of nations,
So shall you summon a nation you knew not, and nations that knew you not shall run to you, Because of the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, who has glorified you.
Seek the LORD while he may be found, call him while he is near.
Let the scoundrel forsake his way, and the wicked man his thoughts; Let him turn to the LORD for mercy; to our God, who is generous in forgiving.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are my ways above your ways and my thoughts above your thoughts.
For just as from the heavens the rain and snow come down And do not return there till they have watered the earth, making it fertile and fruitful, Giving seed to him who sows and bread to him who eats,
So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; It shall not return to me void, but shall do my will, achieving the end for which I sent it.

Book of Isaiah


God indeed is my savior;
I am confident and unafraid.
My strength and my courage is the LORD,
and he has been my savior.
With joy you will draw water
at the fountain of salvation.
Give thanks to the LORD, acclaim his name;
among the nations make known his deeds,
proclaim how exalted is his name.
Sing praise to the LORD for his glorious achievement;
let this be known throughout all the earth.
Shout with exultation, O city of Zion,
for great in your midst
is the Holy One of Israel!

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark


This is what John the Baptist proclaimed: "One mightier than I is coming after me. I am not worthy to stoop and loosen the thongs of his sandals.
I have baptized you with water; he will baptize you with the holy Spirit."
It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John.
On coming up out of the water he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him.
And a voice came from the heavens, "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased."

St. Apollinaris(the Apologist, Bishop (2nd century))

SAINT APOLLINARIS, THE APOLOGIST Bishop(2nd century) Claudius Apollinaris, the bishop of Hierapolis in Phrygia, was an illustrious prelate during the second age. Notwithstanding the great encomiums bestowed on him by Eusebius, St. Jerome, Theodoret and others, little is known of his actions. His writings, which then were held in great esteem, seem now to be lost. He wrote many able treatises against heresies. He pointed out, as St. Jerome testifies, from what philosophical sect each heresy derived its errors. He also addressed an apologetic letter to Emperor Marcus Aurelius circa 175 A.D. Therein, he links the miraculous victory over the Quadi to the prayers of Christians. Bp. Apollinaris implored the emperor to protect Christians from persecution by pagans. Thus Marcus Aurelius published an edict forbidding anyone, under pain of death, to accuse Christians for their religion. By a strange inconsistency, he lacked the courage to abolish the laws then in force. As a consequence, many Christians suffered martyrdom, though their accusers were also put to death. The date of St. Apollinaris' passing is unknown. The Roman Martyrology mentions him on January 8. In the company of saints, he beholds God forever.

St. Severin(Abbot (410-482))

St. SeverinAbbot(410-482) Among the faithful of Noricum (present-day Austria), the abbot St. Severin proclaimed the Gospel. The evangelization of Austria began thanks to his prayers and work. He is venerated as the country's apostle. Through supernatural means, his body was carried to Lucullano, near Naples, and thence to the monastery of St. Severin.

St. Thorfinn(Bishop († 1285))
