Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, January 13, 2019, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord Jesus, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.
In today's first reading, we are told that the Lord God wants to comfort us. How does He comfort us? By sending us the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. In today's Gospel, John the Baptist said that Jesus would baptize us in the Holy Spirit and in fire. But what happens in our lives depends on how we respond.
