Ordinary 4 – In the penitential rite we admit our faults. We also admit our need for God. The Penitential Rite reminds us weekly that without God, we can do nothing (John 15:5), but with God, all things are possible (Luke 1:37).
Ordinary 3 – God has chosen holy places, like the Ark and the Temple. Jesus is the new Temple; it is His presence that makes Church holy. “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”

Baptism of the Lord – Jesus is the Son of the King. Jesus’ mission is to teach us that we are also Sons and Daughters of God. We were each adopted by God at Baptism. Let’s live so that the Father will be well pleased with us.
