Lèctio sancti Evangèlii secundum Marcum...

'And he preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit descending upon him like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, "Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased." '


  1. To me it seems everything gets mixed up from having Christmas on a Sunday--the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord gets compressed into the Epiphany, things are just funny, makes saying the divine office more work. :)

  2. Makes saying the office a lot more work! (-; (This is not the best time of year to try and teach anyone to pray it, either.) I wish Epiphany was preserved on the 13th day of Christmas still. But oh well.
