Christ the light of the nations

The Holy Spirit rested on Jesus Christ when he was baptised by John the
Baptist. Through the coming of the Spirit, John recognised Christ as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Through the gift of the Spirit, we too are called to take our place among the saints and become the light of the world, proclaiming salvation to the ends of the earth.

The promise of the kingdom

On the cross, Christ the King promises his kingdom to a penitent thief. We, like the repentant criminal, receive redemption and forgiveness of our sins through Christ, who gives us the strength to bear all things
joyfully. If we suffer with him, we will reign with him. He is the firstborn from the dead, never to die again.
