This is a word that we see rarely, it gives to one the title of the highest degree of honor, reverence and respect. It shows a high regard for someone. Tomorrow, we will hear that the veneration of the Trinity was revealed, in our Sunday Troparion.
As Jesus presented Himself for Baptism to John, not because He required it, but because He had a greater purpose. The voice of the Father bore witness to Him calling Him His beloved Son. And the Spirit in the form of a dove, confirmed the certainty of His words.
Appearing to enlighten the world, Glory to You Christ our God. (God in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, loving, revealing, and sanctifying).
Jesus sanctified the waters, and the world with His physical presence. We need Him more than ever, yet the churches remain empty, and mankind is too busy.
No matter how much we mess things up, He is here with us. He has revealed this to us over and over in His Word.
Come, venerate Him and cast your cares upon the water, and be healed.
