Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Baptism of Our Lord. This brings to an
end the season of Christmas. The Church recalls Our Lord's second manifestation or
epiphany which occurred on the occasion of His baptism in the Jordan. Jesus descended
into the River to sanctify its waters and to give them the power to beget sons of God. The
event takes on the importance of a second creation in which the entire Trinity intervenes.
