The Baptism of Jesus

This is my Beloved Son

" The baptism of Jesus is on his part
the acceptance and inauguration
of his mission as God's suffering Servant.
He allows himself to be numbered among sinners...
the Father's voice responds to the son's acceptance...
and the heavens are opened
- the heavens that Adam's sin had closed...
a prelude to the new creation."

Catechism 536
