The feast of Infant Jesus was celebrated in a simple manner but meaningfully at Infant Jesus Shrine Alangar, on 10th January 2021 Sunday, following all Covid-19 restrictions like wearing mask, sanitization, screening, social distancing etc. Rev Fr Vijay Machado, director of Mangala Jyothi, Mangalore was the main celebrant. He said that Baptism of Jesus reveals three important elements namely;
- We are God’s family
- Jesus shares his nature with our sinful nature and makes it holy
- Jesus’ Messianic mission is revealed.
- So through our baptism we participate in the three fold mission of Christ-Prophetic, Priestly, and Kingly mission
