Homily given at the 11:30
a.m. Mass on Sunday, January 13, 2013, the Feast of the Baptism of
the Lord, by Fr. Frank Pavone, president of Priest for
Pavone reminds us that Jesus was anointed by the Holy
Spirit at His Baptism to bring "glad tidings to the poor."
Christ became man to become one with us; we must be one with Him in
His mission to the poor and the world. None are poorer
than the children in the womb. Christ is with us, to empower
us to do what is right. We must reach out to those pregnant and in
need, as well as those who have had abortions, and say, "I am with
you," and replace their despair with hope.
Key words: Baptism, abortion,
