Quote about our Lord's Baptism



The Lord was Baptized, not to be cleansed Himself, but to cleanse the waters, so that those waters, cleansed by the flesh of Christ which knew no sin, might have the power of Baptism.

~St. Ambrose of Milan


I've never seen this quote, but I think it is so beautiful and quite profound.

Interesting. That's quite a different interpretation from the normal one, but I like it.
