There is no break between Christmas and Ordinary Time one flows almost seamlessly into the other through the Baptism of Jesus. We ended our Christmas Season thinking about the revelation of the Son of God people realising who this Jesus of Nazareth actually was and this continues today, as we interject a passage from Saint John before we begin our weekly reading through Saint Matthews Gospel. New Year is about beginnings, and as we return to the beginning of Our Lords public ministry there is a sense of something exciting about to happen even though we know the story, we dive into it once more, like returning to a favourite novel or film. So it is with joy that we stand in the country of the river Jordan, and recognise Jesus of Nazareth as the Chosen One of God, who offers himself to do Gods work.
