January 9th: The Baptism of the Lord
Almighty ever-living God, who, when Christ had been baptized
in the River Jordan and as the Holy Spirit descended upon him, solemnly
declared him your beloved Son, grant that your children by adoption, reborn of water
and the Holy Spirit, may always be well pleasing to you. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your
Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
