2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time (January 19th 2019)

  This Sunday we break from our reading of Matthew’s Gospel (the primary Gospel for our current liturgical cycle, Cycle A) to read from John’s Gospel. We heard Matthew’s account of Jesus’ baptism last Sunday, on the feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Today, we hear John the Baptist’s testimony about Jesus as found in John’s Gospel. John’s Gospel differs from the other Gospels because John does not describe Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist. Instead, John the Baptist announces that he knows that Jesus is the Son of God.

  In today’s reading, John the Baptist sees Jesus approaching and cries out, giving witness about who Jesus is. In John’s testimony he says that he saw the Spirit descend upon Jesus. By this sign, John the Baptist knew that Jesus was the one who is to come after him.

  John the Baptist uses two titles for Jesus that are familiar to us. John calls Jesus the “Lamb of God” and the “Son of God.” By using these titles, John the Baptist identifies Jesus’ ultimate purpose: to redeem sinful humanity.

  John the Baptist’s testimony about Jesus clearly distinguishes John’s baptism from the Baptism that Jesus will inaugurate. John baptizes with water; Jesus will baptize with the Holy Spirit. John also puts his practice of baptism in the context of Jesus’ ministry. The purpose of John’s baptism was to make Jesus known to Israel.

  John the Baptist’s sense of purpose is clearly identified in this reading: he baptized in order to prepare for and make known the ministry of the One who was to follow. John’s witness is an excellent example of what it means to be a disciple. By our Baptism, we are called to make Jesus known to all the world by our words and by the witness of our lives.

Prayer to Saints Peter and Paul / Oración a San Pedro y San Pablo

Father in heaven, the light of Your revelation brought Peter and Paul the gift of faith in Jesus Your Son. Through their prayers may we always give thanks for Your life given us in Christ Jesus and for having been enriched by Him in all knowledge and love. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of    the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


Señor, Dios nuestro, tú que entregaste a la Iglesia las primicias de tu obra de salvación, mediante el ministerio apostólico de San Pedro y  San Pablo, concédenos, por su intercesión y sus méritos, los auxilios necesarios   para nuestra salvación. Por nuestro Señor Jesucristo, tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo en la unidad del Espíritu Santo y es Dios por los siglos de los siglos. Amén
