FEAST OF THE BAPTISM OF THE LORD — Year C

Second Reading: Acts 10:34-38

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

Peter addressed Cornelius and the people assembled in the house in these words, “I begin to see how true it is that God shows no partiality.  Rather, that any person of any nationality who fears

God and does what is right is acceptable to God. This is the message God has sent to the people of Israel, the good news of peace proclaimed through Jesus Christ who is Savior of all.  You yourselves know what took place throughout Judea beginning in Galilee with the baptism John preached.  You know how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how Jesus went about doing good works and healing all who were in the grip of the devil.

The Word of God recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.
