On Thursday there is an important feast celebrating the Archangel Michael and the angel Gabriel and six other angels. The word for “archangel” in Greek is “archangelos”, meaning “chief messenger”; and the word for “angel” is “angelos” meaning “messenger”. So angels are essentially messengers of God, messengers who are trying to bring us some important gift that is relevant to our lives. The feast in the Church calendar later this week is called the “Synaxsis of the Archangel Michael and the Other Bodiless Powers,” that is “the Gathering” of these angels, a gathering in which we are invited to participate.

In 603 A.D. St Augustine of Canterbury, who had landed in Kent some six years earlier on a mission from the Pope to convert the East Saxons, arrived in Wales to meet with the Welsh bishops. What happened is recorded in St. Bede’s “Ecclesiastical History of the English people.” St Augustine sat on his throne in the church waiting for the arrival of his brothers. These men reverently entered church with great expectations and stood before the Archbishop. St Augustine, sadly, remained firmly seated in his chair and refused to stand to greet these holy men.

At that time, Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now; for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and alighting on him; and lo, a voice from heaven, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

On day, our Lord Jesus Christ went from Galilee to the Jordan River. Jesus went to see John, to ask him to baptize Him.

John did not want to baptize Jesus. He told Jesus, “I should not baptize You. You should be the One to baptize me!”

But Jesus said that John should baptize Him because it was the right thing to do. So John baptized Jesus. As soon as Jesus came up out of the water, the sky opened up and God’s Spirit came down. The Spirit looked like a dove. It rested on Jesus.

At the same time, a voice from Heaven said, “This is my Son that I love. I am very pleased with Him.”
