January 13, 2019 The Baptism of the Lord
Homily by Rev. Dr. Joseph Pearce, C.O., Pastor

Father told us about Jesus being baptized. Asked "Why did He submit to baptism?" He did it as an example for us. That we too must submit to baptism, so that we can be as righteous as He is righteous. As Jesus told us, we must be as holy as the Father is holy. Remember what Jesus said about the holiness of the Pharisees and scribes? "Do as they say, but not as they do." They were not holy because although they did good, they did not do it with great love. Father told us that the key to holiness is doing all our deeds with great love.
