The Baptism of Our Lord
At Jesus' Baptism, the Father's affirmation was of the highest order: This is my Beloved; I am well-pleased. And so it is that our own Baptisms, because of him, gain for us this same affirmation, through his merit and sacrifice. Not only does he take our sins upon himself; he also gives to us this gift of the Father's affirmation. It is like the blessing that blind Isaac gave to Jacob, thinking him to be Esau. Behold, the Father also blesses us who are covered with the skin, as it were, of Jesus our Sacrifice, and we receive the blessing meant for him. Sermon for the Baptism of Our Lord.
