A Daily Quote to Inspire Your Catholic Faith

“What happened at the moment when Jesus had himself baptized by John? In the face of this act of humble love by the Son of God, the heavens opened and the Holy Spirit showed himself in the form of a dove, while a voice from on high expressed the pleasure of the Father who acknowledged his Only- Begotten, his beloved Son. This was a real manifestation of the Blessed Trinity, that bears witness to the divinity of Jesus, of his being the promised Messiah, the One whom God sent to set his People free in order to save them (cf. Is 40:2).”

–Pope Benedict XVI (1927-2022), Homily, Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Sistine Chapel, Sunday 13 January 2013
