Readings: Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7; Acts 10:34-38; Matthew 3:13-17
This year, with Christmas and 1 January falling on a Sunday, we have the shortest Christmastide possible. The Baptism of the Lord is usually the last Sunday of the Christmas Season but this year it is translated to a Monday. The next day is Tuesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time.
This year the Mass of the Baptism of the Lord will be celebrated at 7:00 AM, integrated with Lauds, Fr. James presiding; there is no homily.
