Luke 3:15–16, 21–22

The story of Jesus’ baptism in Sunday’s Gospel shows the mystery of the Blessed Trinity. After John baptizes Jesus in the Jordan, God announces to the crowd that Jesus is his beloved Son, and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove settled on him. Baptism makes all adopted children of God and gives all the gift of that Holy Spirit. Living the Gospel helps those who follow Jesus be a witness to the world that the Good News is for everyone.

Lucas 3, 15–16.21–22

El relato del Bautismo de Jesús del Evangelio del domingo muestra el misterio de la Santísima Trinidad. Después de que Juan bautizara a Jesús en el río Jordán, Dios anuncia a la multitud que Jesús es su Hijo amado y el Espíritu Santo se posa sobre Él en forma de paloma. El Bautismo nos hace a todos hijos adoptivos de Dios y nos ofrece el don de ese Espíritu Santo. Vivir el Evangelio ayuda a aquellos que siguen a Jesús a ser testigos para el mundo de que la Buena Nueva es para todos.
