Baptism of Christ

The Baptism of Christ in the Jordan confirms Jesus as God’s Son and is the beginning of his public ministry as an adult.

 

‘Next to fire he (Francis) had a singular love for water through which holy penance and tribulation is symbolised and by which the filth of the soul is washed clean and because of which the first cleansing of the soul takes place through the waters of Baptism.’

 

(A Mirror of Perfection 118)
