The Holy Theophany of Our Lord

At His birth we duly kept festival, with the star we ran, and with the magi we worshipped, and with the shepherds we were illuminated, and with the angels we glorified Him, and with Simeon we took Him up in our arms and with Anna the aged and chaste we made our confession. Now, we come to another action of Christ and another mystery. I cannot restrain my pleasure; I am rapt into God. Christ is illumined, let us shine forth with Him. Christ is baptized, let us descend with Him that we may also ascend with Him. Jesus is baptized; but we must attentively consider not only this but also some other points. Who is He, and by whom is He baptized, and at what time? He is the All-pure; and He is baptized by John; and the time is the beginning of His miracles. What are we to learn and to be taught by this? To purify ourselves first; to be lowly minded; and to preach only in maturity both of spiritual and bodily stature. The first has a word especially for those who rush to baptism off hand, and without due preparation, or providing for the stability of the baptismal grace by the disposition of their minds to good.

by St. Gregory Nazianzus
