GOSPEL COMMUNION: Baptism of the Lord

January 12, 2020: Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

For this feast the Collegeville Composers reused an Easter Vigil baptismal acclamation, unusually following in the line of the antiphon given in the Graduale:

All of you who have been baptized in Christ
have put on Christ, alleluia.

Galatians 3:27

We can be reminded that not only have we been baptized, we are baptized, and not only have we put on Christ, we are one in him, especially as we are united in the act of receiving him in Holy Communion.

The lengthy canticle provided for the Communion Procession is taken from Titus 3, Ephesians 1 (following a suggestion in the ICEL 1998 Antiphonal) and 1 Timothy 3.
